Xinhua declares the anchors have "endless prospects" and can be used to inexpensively produce news reports for the agency's web, TV, and mobile output.
A Chinese-language version, which is based on another real-life Xinhua anchor, was also unveiled at the conference.
Rather than true AI, however, the Xinhua presenters merely react to text that is fed into their systems, the agency said.
