MOSCOW – A local television channel in the southern Stavropol region Russia launches the artificial weather presenter, which has been created with the help of some neural network.
Svoye TV premiered its new programme, dubbed ‘Future Forecast’, on Tuesday. The television channel said the program was controlled by a neural network, with one responsible for the virtual presenter, another for preparing text, and a third for generating graphic content.
The program will air five times a day and be hosted by an AI presenter named Snezhana Tumanova who comes from a play on the words ‘snow’ and ‘fog’ in Russian.
“He is ambitious and seeks to completely replace human competitors. At the same time, the management of the TV channel does not intend to leave the classic version of the divination with living people,” the channel said as quoted by RT, Thursday (23/3/2023).
Artificial TV presenters have been in use for several years, with China launching the ‘British Anchor AI’ on state-run Xinhua News Agency in 2018. Several outlets have followed suit.
Last week, China’s leading newspaper, People’s Daily, launched an AI presenter named ‘Ren Xiaorong’ which will broadcast news 24 hours a day.
