SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

World first - an AI news reader

China's state news agency has debuted a virtual anchor, an AI news reader, designed to be able to deliver the news 24 hours a day. Developed by Xinhua and Chinese search engine company Sogou, the anchor has been designed to simulate human voice, facial expressions and gestures. It learns from live broadcasting videos and can read texts naturally. www.cnn.com/2018/11/09/media/china-xinhua-ai-anchor/index.html

It is a good idea, but challenges are that spreading news is not just about delivery the info, it is also about communication and expressing emotion, which is really difficult for AI to achieve.
