[Video] China’s first AI-generated animated series, Technology News

Qianqiu Shisong consists of 26 episodes of about seven minutes each. Drawing from more than 200 classic Chinese poems found in primary, secondary, and higher education textbooks, the series repackaged educational content with the learning needs and interests of young students in mind.

The generative AI model CMG Media GPT can accurately produce visuals depicting Chinese lifestyle and atmosphere as it has been trained with massive Chinese audio-visual language resources data. With advanced technologies capable of image and character generation and text-to-video synthesis, the AI ​​model halved the production time from eight to four months under the same budget compared to traditional methods. An English-dubbed version of the series entitled “Poems of Timeless Acclaim” was aired on CGTN on March 10. The series will also be made available in other languages.
