Stations Test RadioGPT
Broadcast companies Alpha Media in the United States and Rogers Sports & Media in Canada are testing Futuri's RadioGPT, which features conversational artificial intelligence,to power their on-air programming.
RadioGPT combines OpenAI's GPT-3 with Futuri's AI-driven social content system, TopicPulse, and AI voice tech. TopicPulse scans more than 250,000 sources for news and information, identifying which topics are trending. It then creates a script that is then converted to audio using voice artificial intelligence. The audio can include multiple voices and even be trained using the voices of existing personalities.
"As early AI innovators in the broadcast space, it's only natural that we're bringing the incredible power of GPT-3 technology, paired with groundbreaking technology like TopicPulse, to radio," said Futuri CEO Daniel Anstandig in a statement. "The ability for broadcasters to use RadioGPT to localize their on-air content in a turnkey fashion opens up resources for them to deepen their important home-field advantages in new and unique ways."
"At Alpha Media, we always seek innovative ways to engage our audiences. That's why we're a part of Futur's RadioGPT beta group," said Alpha Media Executive Vice President of Content Phil Becker, in a statement. "With RadioGPT's cutting-edge language and content technologies, we can deliver a real-time, hyper-localized, innovative audio experience."
