NetDragon Websoft appoints world’s first humanoid robot as a CEO

A China-based mobile game company NetDragon Websoft has announced that “Ms. Tang Yu,” an AI-powered virtual humanoid robot, has been appointed as the Rotating CEO of its flagship subsidiary, Fujian NetDragon Websoft. This move would pioneer the use of AI to transform corporate management and leapfrog operational efficiency to a new level.

Tang Yu will streamline process flow, enhance the quality of work tasks, and improve the speed of execution. The artificial intelligence-supported female bot will also serve as a real-time data hub and analytical tool to support rational decision-making in daily operations, as well as to enable a more effective risk management system.

In addition, the first virtual CEO is expected to play a critical role in the development of talents and ensure a fair and efficient workplace for all employees. No detailed information about the humanoid robot has been disclosed so far.

The appointment highlights the Company’s “AI + management” strategy and represents a major milestone for the Company towards becoming a “Metaverse organization.”

“We believe 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 Dr. Dejian Liu, Chairman of NetDragon.

“Looking forward, we will continue to expand on our algorithms behind Tang Yu to build an open, interactive, and highly transparent management model as we gradually transform into a metaverse-based working community, which will enable us to attract a much broader base of talents worldwide and put us in a position to achieve bigger goals.”
