World’s first English speaking Artificial Intelligence news anchor

In case you're an news presenter this news should stress you as robots are seeking your jobs. Chinese greatest news agency XINHUA has unveiled the world's first English speaking Artificial Intelligence newscaster. This robotic newscaster dresses with a costly suit, glasses and tie. It was modeled after a genuine Xinhua stay called Zhang Zhao.

Xinhua News asserts the news presenter "can read texts as naturally as a professional news anchor", I don't really concur. Appears to me like the Chinese organization is truly intending to cut employments of their commentators. In an announcement from the organization, it says, the AI robot presenters can “work” 24 hours a day on its website and social media channels, “reducing news production costs and improving efficiency”.



The computerized presenter can be modified to read news quicker than people.

In any case, the innovation has it's very own detriments. For example, it has a restricted scope of facial expressions and it's voice is totally robotic. Despite the fact that it makes a decent attempt to sound human, it's anything but difficult to tell that it is anything but a genuine human.

The future is China



The English speaking AI presenter started his job by saying, “Hello, you are watching English news programme,”

“I will work tirelessly to keep you informed as texts will be typed into my system uninterrupted,” says the presenter in an introductory video.

“I look forward to bringing you the brand new news experiences.”

Xinhua and Sogou a Chinese internet search engine built up this innovation. It was intended to reproduce human voice, outward appearances and signals. However you take a look at it, the possibility of AI discovering it's way into various jobs is chilling as it will continuously assume control numerous occupations later on. We'll check whether different news office obtains this innovation later on.

Rubbish invention.

Chinese are masters in making useless inventions
Up to now I've never seen any breakthrough Chinese innovation thats really relevant and improved lives(I challenge u to name one)
Only knock offs and useless inventions like this robot and other weird tech items which definitely dies in one year time

Third world comment. You have spoken like the typical third world illiterate that you are. Which technological innovation has Nigeria successfully made and unveiled? Why not appreciate what is good? People like you are the singular reason why the Whites look down on Africans as monkeys and irrelevant people.

The future is AI. Even humans would end up with bionic implants or totally graduate to transhumanism. Perfect for control.

It's either the OP is biased or shortsighted. If not, how on earth will China be the future.
Boston Dynamics was founded by the US (though now controlled by a Japanese firm called Soft Bank) and they are taking the lead in robotics. Most significant contributions in robotics were made by the US and Japan. Up till tomorrow, Japan and the United State are still the one taking the lead in robotics and mechatronic systems. The most advanced humanoid robot (Sophia) was built by a US-Honk Kong based company. Check out Atlas also.
China is the future because they are aiming to land a rover on Mars by the year 2030 (something the US has done decades ago). The US will land another Rover in 2020 and peradventure take human to the red planet by the year 2030.
Any country that has been disqualified in the space race is not fit to take us to the future.
The future is in space technology!
Can't wait for Donald Trump to kickoff the US space force.

Lol, Really? My opinion was reached based on international factors,I wasn't even thinking about Nigeria. I'm sure Africa won't be really bothered with all these until much much far later. So our future is still bright here.

The future is relative!

But to be honest, this invention is very needless at this moment that unemployment is biting so hard on every country. The economic disadvantages of this invention outweigh the advantages.

Some inventions are better univented like dido or whatever gals call it. intimacy gadget is the best so far (don't tell me that dido is intimacy gadget)
