A Chinese robot journalist named Xiao Nan wrote his first news story, which the local newspaper Southern Metropolis Daily did not hesitate to publish. The article consists of 300 characters and contains a coherent text about transport problems in the region due to preparations for the celebration of the Chinese New Year. But the main intrigue is different. Robojournalist completed the editorial task in just 1 second. Xiao Nan is the brainchild of Chinese developers from Guangzhou. The head of the team of scientists, Professor Wan Xiaojun, emphasizes that the machine is capable of writing both small notes and detailed articles. The plus of the journalist is that he knows how to quickly analyze the entire amount of data provided and does not waste time typing, however, Xiao Nan will not be able to replace people-journalists. So, the robot is not yet subject to interviews, reports, conversations with suggestive and additional questions. In addition, the computer correspondent is not yet trained to set the tone for the material, which is characteristic of a human colleague. But robots, like Xiao Nan, can be great helpers, on whose shoulders lies the collection of information for future articles, writing simple news and summaries. In particular, the Chinese newspaper Southern Metropolis Daily plans to continue to use the services of a robot journalist.
