  • 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.
