China debuts world’s first virtual anchor


China’s state news agency debuted a virtual anchor last week.  The artificial intelligence presenter is designed to deliver the news 24-hours a day.  

It’s modeled on a real-life Chinese anchor.  The AI anchor simulates the human voice, facial expressions and gestures. 

The developer believes the technology will reduce costs and improve efficiency especially for websites and social media.
