China: a robot driven by an artificial intelligence appointed CEO of a large company, a world first

In China, one of the country’s largest video game designers was recently appointed to head one of its subsidiaries a humanoid robot guided by artificial intelligence. Son’s name: Mrs. Tang Yu. A remarkable world first.

The new boss is a robot. In a press release published at the end of August, NetDragon Websoft announced the appointment of Tang Yu as head of its subsidiary in Fujian (south), one of the company’s largest.

Considered sometimes audacious, sometimes risky, this globally unprecedented decision was commented on by NetDragon Websoft, who favored a management strategy based on artificial intelligence: “We believe that AI is the future of business management, and our appointment of Ms. Tang Yu represents our commitment to truly embrace AI to transform the way we operate our business,” said Dejian Liu, chairman of the multibillion-dollar company.

Managerial performance supposed to be improved

While NetDragon Websoft hasn’t yet released specific details about the new “Madame Tang Yu” feature, the company has added the many benefits that artificial intelligence management would bring.

Among them demonstrate the improvement of work tasks, and a gain in speed in their execution. This performance would be enhanced by an efficient and fair workspace. Ms. Tang Yu’s employees could also count on the permanent availability of the robot, which will not need to rest.

On a day-to-day basis, the CEO robot will see its managerial qualities improved by a real-time data storage capacity, which will allow it to reach the best decisions. Also, optimal risk management will be made possible thanks to powerful algorithms.

The company behind famous video games like Eudemons Online, Heroes Evolved and Conquer Online is the great pioneer of this strategy which tends to approach metaverses.
