China’s AI news anchor introduces himself and presents news reports
09 November, 2018, 02:41
China's Xinhua news agency on Thursday unveiled the world's first AI anchor that can read news in English and Chinese.
Xinhua's first English AI anchor introduces himself as what he is and what his capabilities are.
The AI clones' voices, lip movements and expressions are based on real Chinese presenters, and can deliver news as words are typed into their system.
Titans offense comes alive in 28-14 win at Dallas
Luckily the rest of the NFC East has had issues as well, still keeping the Cowboys in the race for the top spot in the division. There was a missed field goal before Cooper's TD, and Prescott's interception after that in their first home loss this season.
But Xinhua appears to know that the anchor is a work in progress, as the AI's sign-off message on its first report emphasized. According to the South China Morning Post, Xinhua has created two anchors (one for English and the other for Chinese broadcast) in collaboration with a local search engine company Sogou. Its limited range of motion and expressions becomes repetitive after a short time, while its gray crisp suit and perfectly coiffed hair are even more rigid than human cable news hosts. The AI will have "endless outputs", Xinhua says, given that they can "work 24 hours a day on its official website and various social media platforms" - provided that a human editor can supply them with the copy, that is.
It was stuck somewhat in the "uncanny valley" - a term used to describe human-like robots and avatars which seem subtly unrealistic.
THE RISE OF THE MACHINES will be televised if China's artificial intelligence (AI) news presenter is anything to go by.
