Tang Yu, the female humanoid robot, will be leading the operations at China’s NetDragon Websoft, making her the first robot to hold an executive role in a business.
NetDragon Websoft develops and operates multiplayer online games in addition to producing mobile applications.
Tang Yu will handle the organisational and operational aspects of the company, which is worth nearly $10 billion.
According to a press statement from the company, the new CEO will boost the speed of execution, improve the quality of job activities and optimise process flow.
It also said that the robot will act as a real-time data hub and analytical tool, which will enable logical decision-making in everyday operations. The statement further said that Tang Yu will contribute to making the risk management system more efficient.
🔥 It’s interesting to note that Jack Ma, the founder and chairman of Alibaba Group, predicted in 2017 that a robot would probably be featured as Time Magazine’s best CEO in 30 years.
