New Delhi, May 24 (IANS): In a bid to keep up with the era of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Doordarshan Kisan has announced plans to launch two AI anchors who can speak in 50 languages, including from India and abroad, said the Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers Welfare on Friday.

DD Kisan, established on May 26, 2015, is the only TV channel in the country dedicated to farmers.

The new AI anchors will be officially launched on May 26, on the channel’s ninth anniversary.

“The AI anchors are a computer, which can work like a human. They have the capacity to speak in 50 different languages and can read news 24 hours and 365 days without stopping,” the ministry said.

The AI anchors will provide all necessary information about agricultural research happening in the country and at the global level, trends in agriculture mandis, changes in weather and information regarding government schemes.

The DD Kisan channel was established on May 26, 2015 with the objective of keeping farmers informed about the changes in weather, global and local markets etc., so that farmers can make appropriate plans in advance and take right decisions on time.

DD Kisan channel is also working to bring forward the efforts of progressive farmers to all the people, with the aim of serving the agricultural and rural community in the country and working towards creating an environment of holistic development by educating them, the ministry said.
