China produced world’s first artificial intelligence based news anchor for its news agency Xinhua in partnership with Sogu.This newsreader was unveiled at World Internet Conference tech expo in Wuzhen.
According to South China Morning Post this AI anchor can read news in male voice and most interestingly if you are thinking its a robot then not.It is designed in such way that it can learn with live running telecast.
So such anchors will not only save money for news channels but will also reduce in escalations done by humans coz it can work for continous 24 hours and this anchor can read breaking news too.
This virtual anchor is developed by using image and robotic voice that seems like real Xinhua host and is under development and needs a lot of improvement.
Alarm for humans to minimize their errors.
