The impossible does not seem to exist in the dictionary of Artificial Intelligence. We have seen that it can act in various fields and adapt to a wide variety of contexts. Only the future will reveal whether AI will replace human workers in the many jobs that exist worldwide. However, technology has indeed taken on various roles and has given its best in several areas. The latest one? The world of radio.
After seeing that ChatGPT was able to write complete essays and answer complex questions, Futuri, a Cleveland-based technology company in Ohio, USA, decided to test its talent for radio.
Futuri Media, a startup responsible for creating RadioGPT, has developed a program that uses artificial intelligence to reproduce radio content for listeners. The RadioGPT program is classified as “the world’s first AI-driven radio content solution” and uses two AI tools: GPT-3, developed by OpenAI for ChatGPT, and TopicPulse, a system created by Futuri Media that searches the internet for real-time stories and content.
As stated in a press release, “RadioGPT combines the power of GPT-3 technology with Futuri’s AI-based story discovery and social content system, TopicPulse.” In addition, the company has planned a system that uses “voice technology to ensure an unparalleled radio experience for any market, in any format.”
While the TopicPulse AI analyzes over 250,000 websites and news agencies to identify trending topics, GPT-3 converts this information into a radio script. The voices, also generated by AI, then narrate the news like a professional radio host. RadioGPT also allows users to create stations using a variety of Android voices, enabling programs with up to three different voices reading the news.
In addition to reproducing news, the program can also play music in sequence and generate autonomous posts for social media related to the content being transmitted in real-time. Futuri CEO Daniel Anstandig stated that “the ability of broadcasters to use RadioGPT to locate their content on the air in a ready-to-use manner presents new and unique advantages. Now everyone can be live.”
By leveraging the power of AI, RadioGPT has the potential to increase audience engagement and attract new listeners by providing more personalized content that caters to their interests.

According to DesingTaxi, the North American broadcaster Alpha Media and the Canadian Rogers Sports & Media have already signed up to use RadioGPT in their broadcasts. With the rise of AI technology, it is likely that we will see more and more AI-powered solutions in various industries, including radio broadcasting. RadioGPT is an exciting development that has the potential to revolutionize the radio industry by providing a cost-effective and efficient solution for radio content production.
