News hardware The Chinese appoint a female CEO, but it’s an artificial intelligence

A Chinese video game company has just appointed a female virtual robot to head its largest subsidiary. If that sounds absurd, it probably is a bit. Yet the company seems happy with its AI.

A company run by artificial intelligence

Except for communication, one can ask the question: “why appoint an AI at the head of a video game company? But according to a statement from Net Dragon Websoft, Tang Yu, this virtual female robot can “enhance the quality of work tasks and improve the execution speed.”

The company sees it as a way to make more rational decisions for everyday actions. That still doesn’t explain why appointing her CEO. Looking further, one discovers that it is also about ensuring a fairer and more efficient workplace. His role as CEO thus allows him to make decisions on equality. But suddenly, why have it personified as a woman, if the objective is precisely more equity? To this question, we do not have the answer.

This is not a metal and plastic robot, but of an artificial intelligence personified as a female robot.

We are gradually transforming into a working community based on the metaverse, which will allow us to attract a much broader base of talent around the world and put us in a position to achieve more ambitious goals.

The goal is really to take everything the metaverse has to offer and build a complete business within it. Be able to manage the operation of the company from A to Z directly into the virtual world seems the goal of Net Dragon Websoft. Ultimately, it’s better performance management and money savings for the company.

We do not learn more about the concrete operation in the metaverse. The goal seems above all to make one between the employees via virtual reality as well as artificial intelligence. A world where the virtual takes a more important part than the real.

This is where one must ask oneself if this is really the world to which one wishes to turn. Even if the advantages seem numerous in terms of ease of management and decision-making, are we ready to let artificial intelligence take precedence over our choices? It is certainly only a framework for work today, but nothing prevents extending it to daily life in the future.

Especially since China is among the leaders in virtual reality and the metaverse. Multinationals, like Tencent, for example, are investing millions in the sector and file a large amount of patents every year.
