Greece introduces first Artificial Intelligence news presenter


Greece’s public broadcaster ERT has introduced the country’s first ever Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered virtual TV presenter.

“Hermes,” named after the ancient Greek messenger of the Gods, read a short statement on ERT’s popular Syndesis program.

Reactions from the public varied. Some users were impressed with ERT being “at the forefront of AI-powered apps” and others tweeting that “in the first 30 seconds [they] changed the channel.” 

Greece is not the first country to introduce AI-powered news presenters, with Kuwait media being the first to unveil an AI news presenter with the intent for it to read online bulletins.
