Although this announcement sounds like a sci-fi movie, yet NetDragon Websoft Holdings transformed it into reality. The company chose indeed to bet on a humanoid robot to commend and guide its business decisions, as a “rotating CEO of its flagship subsidiary ‘Fujian NetDragon Websoft Co. Ltd’”. Ms. Tang Yu is hence to serve as a real-time data hub and analytical tool so as to support daily decision-making operations.
In other words, Netdragon Websoft will rely on their AI-powered virtual humanoid robot to “streamline process flow, enhance quality of work tasks, and improve speed of execution”. This means that Yu Tang will have a forefront position, as it is expected to embrace a significant role. NetDragon Chairman Dr. Deijan Liu, “We believe AI is the future of corporate management, and our appointment of Ms. Tang Yu represents our commitment to […] drive our future strategic growth”.
This makes clear that technology is evolving at fast-pace, since it now goes beyond helping human beings in their daily tasks. It appears that we are bound to get used to cooperating with AI-powered technologies. Only the future will tell whether this cooperation is fruitful and successful.
