Radio, which is taking up less and less space in our lives, can apparently turn into artificial intelligence in a few years. Introducing the world’s first artificial intelligence radio station, RadioGPT.
The sound you hear on your favorite FM radio stations on your way to work may soon belong to artificial intelligence. A while ago, Futuri Media announced RadioGPT, the world’s first artificial intelligence-based “localized” radio station.
The World’s First Artificial Intelligence Radio Station
Developed by Futuri Media, RadioGPT is built on the basis of the GPT-3 model found in the ChatGPT product offered by OpenAI. At the same time, this model is combined with TopicPulse, which does story discovery and social media content scans. As a result, an artificial intelligence DJ is presented, who will determine which topics are trending in a local area and present you content accordingly.
According to reports, RadioGPT scans Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more than 250,000 other news and information sources to identify topics. The data obtained are transformed into reality with artificial intelligence voices and transferred to you. In this way, while receiving the news, other local information such as songs, advertisements, traffic updates and weather are also transmitted to you by the realistic artificial intelligence voice. It is also possible to train this voice with the voice of an artist. So your local radio station host could be celebrities like Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Ricky Gervais. Who knows, we might even be able to pay for the voices of artificial intelligence talking in the future.
Alpha Media has already signed with Futiri to become RadioGPT’s first partner for local radio stations in the United States. It was not yet clear how Alpha Media would integrate RadioGPT into its stations or whether this would result in job losses for its current employees.
On the other hand, there are some problems, more precisely, question marks in RadioGPT. For example, Futuri did not go into detail in its browsing information and sites feature. This information is collected through the company’s own TopicPulse technology, but it is unclear how. Although content is created by combining this information with GPT-3, the reliability or impartiality of the information is also a question mark. As you know, social media has been criticized frequently in recent years due to false news.
