The CEO of this Chinese company is… a robot

China-based mobile game company NetDragon Websoft has appointed a virtual human with artificial intelligence as its general manager named “Tang Yu.” This ‘robot CEO’ comes five years after Alibaba founder Jack Ma predicted a robot would grace the cover of Time magazine as the best CEO in 30 years.


The appointment was made on August 26, and the new virtual CEO, Tang Yu, began her role at the company’s main subsidiary, Fujian NetDragon Websoft. According to the company’s press release, Tang Yu will support decision-making during the company’s daily operations, provide a more effective risk management system, provide a fairer work environment for employees, be used as a real-time data and also as an analysis tool for the board.

The future is here.

“We believe that AI is the future of corporate management, and our appointment of Ms. Tang Yu represents our commitment to truly embrace the use of AI to transform the way we operate our business and ultimately drive our future strategic growth,” said Dejian Liu, Chairman of NetDragon.

“Looking forward, we will continue to expand our algorithms behind Tang Yu to create an open, interactive, and highly transparent management model as we gradually transform into a metaverse-based community of work, allowing us to attract a much broader talent around the world and put us in a position to achieve bigger goals,” he added.

Its objective is “to take a leap in operational efficiency to a new level ” with the measure: to create an “open, interactive and highly transparent management model”.
