Artificial intelligence (AI) technology has been used to create various characters, including human-like presenters. This time, the scientists of China's Beijing Institute of General Artificial Intelligence (BIGAI) have created AI children capable of behaving like children through artificial intelligence technology. The child's name is Tong Tong. Scientists claim that this is the world's first AI baby. The AI baby could bring a big change in the technology world.

According to the scientists, the child named Tong Tong was created through artificial intelligence technology. As a result, the image of the child will be seen only on the screen. So even if you want to, the child cannot be touched. A child's intelligence in virtual worlds is usually between three and four years old.

The AI baby was unveiled at the General Artificial Intelligence Technology Exhibition held in Beijing recently. The child can learn various things by himself. One can even get angry by expressing one's feelings about various happenings around them. During the exhibition, the child delighted the visitors by making various gestures on his own.

According to a report by the South China Morning Post, several visitors asked the AI baby to perform various tasks while talking to the exhibit. Listening to them, Tong Tong tries to clean up the random pictures in the virtual room by himself, as well as wipe up the milk spilled on the floor. Generally, AI chatbots cannot perform any task without detailed instructions. But Tong Tong can do different things by itself. Source: Daily Mail
