Channel 24, a private TV network based in Dhaka, yesterday unveiled the country's first-ever 'artificial intelligence' news presenter named 'Aparajita.'
Aparajita debuted during the 7:00pm bulletin yesterday. Channel 24 did not disclose the details behind the technology used in making the 'artificial intelligence' or 'AI' presenter.
The utilisation of artificial intelligence for news presentation has been observed globally, with Kuwait News introducing the AI news reader "Feda" in April. Similarly, Odisha Television Limited (OTV), a private television station in India, introduced an artificial intelligence presenter for news delivery on July 9.
Abdul Kaium Tuhin, Senior News Editor of Channel 24, told The Daily Star, "On Wednesday, we had a demo run with an 'artificial intelligence' news presenter named 'Aparajita' in our prime-time news bulletin. She will present our tech-based programme 'Ctrl A'. We have a lot of plans for this. Till now, we have received very good response from our visitors."
