Chinese state TV to launch US-developed AI anchor

The People’s Republic is arguably the first to launch a computer-created artificial intelligence anchor personality on a state TV channel
March 24, 2022/9.49

It’s Max Headroom in real life, but at a far more sophisticated level: the People’s Republic of China’s state TV channel CCTV says it has an AI anchor called Wang, who will appear in one of its programmes in March.

Wang will be used in news and economy programmes on the channel this year.

Wang is a three-dimensional AI model.

The network says Wang has natural voices and facial expressions, and was developed using US company DeepBrain’s AI deep learning technology.

The technology learned a person’s voice, accent and gestures through hundreds of sentences of recorded video, and the AI person can read a script as though they were the original human.
