Female artificial intelligence robot in China



On Sunday, Xinhua used a robotic news anchor simulating human facial expressions
 and behaviors to provide news about the delegates who arrived in Beijing to
 attend the annual meeting of Parliament, which poses a clear threat to news
 broadcasters in the coming years.

This type of news robot is called an overlay announcer or artificial intelligence
 broadcaster, and it is an automated news anchor that mimics human facial
 expressions and behaviors.

The announcer of artificial intelligence combines the images and sounds of human
 broadcasters using artificial intelligence technology to read news in the same
 way as the effect of the human broadcaster, because the machine learning
 program is able to synthesize real words, lip movements and facial expressions.

An artificial intelligence robot named "Xin Xiaomeng" appeared in Xinhua'
s one-minute video presentation, with a short haircut in a pink dress and earrings,
 to present a flawless newscast.

Xin Xiaomeng was designed to resemble the appearance of Qu Meng, a Xinhua reporter,
 as there was no difference between the two, and many did not notice the differences
 when a robotic news anchor first appeared.

The new robot was developed in cooperation between Xinhua and the Chinese
 search engine company Sogou, which is based in the Chinese capital,
 and with whom the news agency previously cooperated to develop
 a news robot launched during the World Internet Conference in Wuzhen.

China has been working for years on developing AI newscasters,
 however, early attempts have not been successful, and this includes
 the failed attempt to write a robotic news reporter named Jia Jia.

Jia Jia first appeared during a live broadcast on the air, but it was
 a failure with very long response times and many meaningless one-word
 responses, but China is racing ahead to overtake the United States in developing
 artificial intelligence.

And the Chinese news agency explained that artificial intelligence technology
 greatly improves efficiency and reduces the cost of producing daily TV news reports,
 adding that it can quickly generate breaking news reports in order to improve
 the timing and quality of these reports.

Many experts on artificial intelligence say that the world's most populous country
 is trying to build a global AI empire and sow the technology ecosystem in the future.

China is trying to push its strength in the field of artificial intelligence technology,
 and it seems ready to become a global leader in this field, with the Chinese president
 owning ambitions to make his country a major innovation center for artificial
 intelligence in the world by 2030.

But observers are concerned that China is becoming a digital watchdog,
 with many emerging technologies such as iris scanning and gait walk learning
 to monitor ordinary citizens, activists and ethnic minorities in places like Xinjiang.

"I developed bingo three years ago with my team after the foundation
 of the Ai Bingo Company," said developer Ming Haibo, who holds a PhD 
in computer science from Tsinghua University in Beijing.

Ming, 36, father of two young children, started his business by designing
 a robot to educate his children at home, so he rarely found time to accompany
 his children due to the pressure of work. So he thought about making the
 educational process easy, gentle and shortening the time.

According to this policy, by 2021, it is expected that there will be at least 15
 million boys and girls who need pre-school education, kindergarten, and then
 the educational system will not be able to deal with them, in addition to
 that with the increasing number of young children, the country will face
 a shortage of 110,000 kindergartens and more than 3 million teachers during two years.
