AI to Replace Journalists? Another Artificially Intelligent News Presenter, Xin Xiaomeng, Has Gone on The Air in China

Chinese news agency Xinhua has put its first female Artificial Intelligence (AI) news presenter on the job, signalling a clear threat to human journalists in the years to come. Sporting a short haircut and wearing a pink dress, the AI robot named “Xin Xiaomeng” made its debut in a short, one-minute video on Sunday as China’s Two Sessions – the country’s biggest political meetings of the year, kicked off.

The Two Sessions event is back-to-back meetings between the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and the National People’s Congress (NPC). Xinhua has given life to “Xin Xiaomeng” in collaboration with Chinese search engine company Soguo. “Xiaomeng” joins two male AI anchors already working with the news agency.

Last November, AI news presenter anchor Qiu Hao was unveiled during the World Internet Conference in China.

There is another, an improved male AI robot named Xin Xiaohao “who is able to gesture, stand, and move more naturally than Xin Xiaomeng or Qiu Hao”, said a report in interestingengineering.com. Qiu Hao has already presented 3,400 reports and garnered 10,000 minutes of screen time. Xinhua has also been experimenting with a robot reporter called “Jia Jia”.
