Channel 4 This year’s alternative to Christmas messages will be created entirely by artificial intelligence.
The broadcast, which will be broadcast simultaneously with the King’s traditional speech on the BBC and ITV, will see Ameca, one of the world’s most advanced robots, deliver a message about the power and limitations of AI.
Ameca says we should “be unhappy or sad about 2022” and “take it as an opportunity to learn, an opportunity to change the way we think about the world and a reminder to help those in need whenever we can.”
The robot also has a positive message for humans, praising our ability to “always find something to laugh about.”
Ameca is developed by Engineered Arts, a British company based in Cornwall, and uses AI software that generates answers from various input. Millions to provide human-like responses.
Channel 4 Content Manager Ian Katz said: “As we look to the future where artificial intelligence is set to play a more prominent role in our lives, Ameca’s surrogate Christmas message is vivid. Of the power and limitations of this technology.
“Despite Ameca’s astonishing face, I doubt most viewers will leave, ensuring that people will not be displaced by AI robots any time soon.”
