The news via AI anchor

China is touting the world's first artificial intelligence news anchor. The AI newsman, which (almost) boasts the voice, facial expressions and actions of a real male, learns autonomously from live broadcast videos.

The AI news anchor was jointly developed by Xinhua News Agency and Chinese search engine Sogou.com.

Xinhua says the anchor has become a member of its reporting team and can work 24 hours a day on its official website and various social media platforms, “reducing news production costs and improving efficiency”.
