    DD Kisan Launches Two AI Anchors

    DD Kisan, the only government TV channel dedicated to farmers, has launched two AI anchors, AI Krish, and AI Bhoomi, informed a PIB press release on the 24th of May. The press release says that the anchors can read the news for 24 hours 365 days without stopping or getting tired.

    This development comes as the channel celebrates its 9th anniversary. “The farmer viewers will be able to see these anchors in all the states of the country from Kashmir to Tamil Nadu and from Gujarat to Arunachal, these AI anchors will provide every necessary information about agricultural research happening in the country and global level, trends in agriculture mandees, changes in the weather or any other information of government schemes,” states PIB. The AI anchors can also communicate in fifty Indian languages and will broadcast in all the Indian states. 

    DD Kisan Launches Two AI Anchors

    DD Kisan was launched on 26 May 2015, with the objective of keeping farmers informed about changes in the weather, and global and local markets so that they could make appropriate plans in advance and make the right decisions on time.

    A post on X (formerly Twitter) from the news channel states that the channel will be “introducing a new look and style” from 26 May, with the AI anchors being the “most exciting feature”.

    Medianama had previously addressed the possibility of AI mimicking human speech and behavior and pointed out that automated content, like AI anchors, are predictable and lack personality, making them a poor replacement for humans. 

    On a related note, the use of AI to mimic human speech has proliferated in recent years and has opened new frontiers in political communication. In February this year, Pakistani voters were greeted by an AI-generated speech from their former Prime Minister Imran Khan, who had been imprisoned the previous year and was campaigning from inside his jail cell.
