For the first time, a Chinese news channel has employed an artificial intelligence robot as a weather reporter on its live breakfast show, raising concerns among the country’s journalists as it could threaten their jobs.
“I’m happy to start my new work on the winter solstice,” robot XiaoIce said during her debut on Tuesday morning.
XiaoIce is actually a piece of software developed by Microsoft using smart cloud and big data.
In the first two days of her work, XiaoIce impressed many with her cute voice. She also comments on big news events on Shanghai Dragon TV.
