China Unveils An Artificial Intelligence Virtual News Anchor

Because it was only a matter of time until someone did it, this is a video demonstration of “an artificial intelligence virtual news anchor” created by the state-run Chinese news agency Xinhua to read the news. The agency says that they’ve developed two of the anchors (one for Chinese, one for English), and, admittedly, they’re pretty realistic. The synthesized voice though — they need to do something about that. I’ve heard far more convincing human-speak from someone wearing one of those Transformers voice-changing masks.
