The female artificial intelligence robot, called "Xin Xiaomeng", has started "working" as a newsreader at Xinhua's News Media Centre, the network stated in a video published on the agency's official account.
The robotic female anchor reportedly read news about delegates visiting an annual parliamentary meeting in Beijing.
Her male colleague, "Xin Xiaohao", who first appeared on the news programme last year, was also in the video. Both anchors were reportedly developed by Xinhua and the Chinese search engine company Sogou.
