Default Xinhua Unveils AI news anchor

China's state news agency Xinhua has debuted an artificial intelligence news presenter developed jointly with a major IT company.


China (中国) decided to get rid of all these stupid media people, (ABC, NBC, CNN) and instead, use a machine to present the news.

Reporter Sniffy went to the Chinese consulate on Spadina road and asked if they could assist New Nation News with the same. I was talking through the intercom, but they said that they couldn’t hear me and that I should go see the parking lot attendant.

An old lady with a huge gold front tooth told me that I could just download Praat and simply type in text, in any language, and this would be converted to sound.

New > Sound > Create Speech Synthesizer

It was a bit tight with me and the old lady in the parking booth but this is what we came up with
