"Hya" TV channel unveiled Tuesday Egypt's first virtual news presenter generated using artificial intelligence, Malika.

"Malika's experience on "Hya" is in line with the ongoing technology boom in the globe," Ehab Galal, founder of the channel, said in a statement.

"The next stage will witness the use of artificial intelligence in more than one program on the channel,".

In artificial intelligence, neural networks are systems that are similar to the human brain in the way they learn and process information. They enable AIs to learn from experience, as a person would. This is called deep learning.

AI has presented many promising benefits such as health care and the elimination of mundane tasks. 

However, AI 'godfather' Geoffrey Hinton warned that chatbots could soon overtake the level of information that a human brain holds.

In March, an open letter co-signed by dozens of people in the AI field, including the tech billionaire Elon Musk called for a pause on all developments more advanced than the current version of AI chatbot ChatGPT so robust safety measures could be designed and implemented.
