【看CP學英文】隨著科技迅速發展,南韓MBN電視台近期推出首位AI主播,順利播報了當天主要新聞和數則快訊,還能與棚外記者對話,讓網友不經大讚:完全看不出來!

As technology advances rapidly and incorporates itself into our lives, South Korean cable TV channel MBN recently unveiled its first artificial intelligence (AI) news anchor.

據外媒報導,MBN和人工智慧開發公司MoneyBrain以當地電視台主持人金柱夏為模特兒,將本尊的實際播報影像進行研究,以其聲調、語氣、表情、動作等原汁原味的套在AI主播上,此軟體更能在一分鐘內快速產生近1000字左右的播報影片。

According to foreign media reports, MBN collaborated with MoneyBrain and based the AI news anchor on Kim Joo-ha. They processed previous recordings of Kim’s, making note of her voice, tone, facial expressions and gestures. 

The high-end technology can not only create the life-like animation but also share up to 1,000 texts every minute.

報導指出,幕後工作人員會將當日新聞先撰寫好,再請製作人打出字幕和搭配對應的影片,之後將其上傳就能讓AI主播順利在大螢幕前發揮實力。

In addition, reports show that a writer will come up with the news for the day and send the content to the managing producers who will then add in subtitles and videos, accordingly.

After it’s completed, they will upload the project to let the AI news anchor showcase her skills on air. 

 MBN電視台也表示,這樣一來,若遇突發狀況,便能迅速提供正確資訊,同時也可以節省人力和資源,一箭雙鵰。

In this way, quick news delivery can be even more effective and can save time and resources all in one take, an MBN official said.
