Alibaba's robot ET writes Spring Festival scrolls - Entertainment news
Ahead of the Lunar New Year, Alibaba recruited its AI program “ET” to write Spring Festival scrolls for the company's staff at its headquarters in Xixi, Hangzhou.
The two robot arms, holding Chinese calligraphy brushes, looked awkward but managed to paint Chinese characters in smooth strokes. The scrolls were personalised: before it start to write, ET did some “creative meditating”, analyzing the face of each individual, talking with them and analyzing their request.
It is a common custom in China to affix a set of Spring Festival scrolls - also known as Spring Festival Couplets or Chunlian in Mandarin - on the door during this major Chinese holiday. A whole Chunlian set consists of three scrolls: two vertical ones to fix on either side of the door, and a horizontal placed one above it. Scrolls are usually made on red paper and feature lines of poetry.
