The overwhelming possibilities of artificial intelligence (AI) are starting to pay off. A video game company that has opted for the intangible, has named a virtual humanoid robot with several algorithms at its core as CEO and his actions took an unexpected turn.
In August, Fujian Province-based NetDragon Websoft, in what was seen as a pioneering move, called it its Executive Director to Ms. Tang Yu, a robot that operates using artificial intelligence.
The bot’s primary goal was to increase efficiency in decision-making and risk management, as well as help “ensure a fair and efficient workplace for all employees.”
According to a Twitter post, the company has made significant gains increase their shares on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. “Tang Yu was responsible for all typical tasks: reviewing high-level analytics, making leadership decisions, assessing risk, and promoting an effective work environment,” she says.
As published by the Inside site, in just over eight months in office, Tang Yu has managed to increase its value to Fujian NetDragon Websoft beyond the 9 billion dollars From Hong Kong.
Its operation was based on an operating system “which gradually learns every time it makes a decision and evaluates performance” and which, unlike a human being, “doesn’t argue with people or complain about overtime”, they joked in agency.
The underlying algorithm was developed by a company called iFlytek, which specializes in speech recognition and natural language processing technology.
“This AI is the future of business management, and our appointment of Ms. Tang Yu represents our commitment to truly embrace the use of AI to transform the way we run our business and ultimately fuel our growth.” future”. strategic,” said Dejian Liu , founder of NetDragon Websoft.
The progress of artificial intelligence
In view of its capabilities, there has been a debate about whether to leave an artificial intelligence with capabilities never seen before, which could replace people in some jobs.
The McKinsey Global Institute recently predicted this 45 million workersor about 28% of the entire American workforce, would lose their jobs to automation by 2030. Most automation efforts or whenever we talk about them, we mention employee replacement.
The curious thing is that, while the executives who govern the destinies of companies celebrate all the cost reductions that are within their reach, even using AI, they now understand that their positions are not safe from being replaced.
“Moving forward, we will continue to expand our algorithms behind Tang Yu to build an open, interactive, and highly transparent management model as we gradually transform into a metaverse-based working community,” said Liu.
NetDragon, a video game company founded in 1999, has developed several successful products throughout its history such as “Eudemons Online”, “Heroes Evolved” or “Conquer Online”.
