#AI interviews impress us! This Chinese robot #Jiajia could revolutionize journalism

  • Chen Xiaoping (R), director of a robot research and development team, and Jia Jia, an interactive robot that looks like a real Chinese young woman in traditional outfit, talk through internet with Kevin Kelly on screen, founding executive editor of Wired magazine, in Hefei, capital of east China’s Anhui Province, April 24, 2017.
  • Jia Jia was unveiled in 2016 by Chen’s robot research and development team at the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei.
  • “It’s something we could never have imagined,” said Jia Jia’s creator Professor Chen Xiaoping, director of the Robotics Laboratory at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in Hefei, a city in east China’s Anhui Province.
  • The first interview conducted by Jia Jia as a special Xinhua reporter on Monday was merely a small step in the era of artificial intelligence (AI), said Chen, who has been long involved in the development of Jia Jia and honored as the “father” of the robot.
  • Jia Jia, did a live interview with Kevin Kelly, a U.S. journalist and technology observer, on Monday, which was hailed by scientists as “having symbolic significance” as it was the world’s first interactive conversation between an “AI reporter” and a human being.
