Watch China Debut Its Very First English ‘AI News Anchor’ on TV


Meet China’s very first English news anchor, who also happens to be AI. Modelled off the voice and ‘movements’ of a real news reporter working at the state-run agency Xinhua, the eerily realistic addition to the news team is made of digital composites that use synthesized voices to “read” the news. The AI anchor will be able to operate 24-hours a day on their official website and various social media platforms which will ultimately reduce news production costs and improve efficiency.
