Interestingly, AI news anchors can work tirelessly for 24 hours continuously. With Machine Learning techniques, AI News Anchor constantly learns from the live broadcast video. In addition, this can read texts as naturally as the professionals do.
News anchors around the world are getting a big amount for anchoring. In a report, the news anchor in America gets an average salary of $ 83,300 per year and this can be up to $ 875,000. An AI news anchor may save millions for news broadcasters because the broadcasters don’t have to pay big salaries to them.
Google is already working for an AI-powered audio news feed that’ll be integrated with Google Assistant. This Artificial Intelligence feature has an ability to change other audio news sources. In the same way, AI-driven news anchor tech can cut jobs of current anchors of news media. And not only the news anchors, but also the place of anchors or hosts on different platforms.
However, there’s still a lot of work to do in this AI field. In continuity, companies are constantly working towards AI to make it applicable effectively. And seeing recent trends and developments, you can understand its future.
