There was a surprise in the ongoing fifth World Internet conference in China's Zhejiang province. World's first Artificial Intelligence news anchor was introduced to the world in this conference. China's state news agency Xinhua had its newest news anchor named Qiu Hao.
Qiu Hao was wearing striped suit and red tie, nodding his head in sometimes, blinking his eyes and raising his eyebrows occasionally . The determined artificial news readers imitate the voice of other news readers and copy their gesture and mannerism while reading news. These AI news readers will give news all day from anywhere in China.
The competitive media industry is in need of innovative things to capture the viewer's attention. So this new way of news reading may attract viewers with its advanced technology. It was developed by China's news agency Xinhua and the Chinese search engine , Sogou. The AI anchors were trained through machine learning to simulate voice, facial movements and gestures of human news readers.
Even an English speaking AI news reader was also presented in the conference. These Artifical intelligence news readers will have lively look like a human being instead of stone faced robotic look. The world is getting ready for AI revolution.
