A press release from Futuri Media promised a thing called RadioGPT™. It read like the sort of thing that I should be implacably against.
“The World’s First AI-Driven Localized Radio Content”, RadioGPT is a system that a) watches social media for trending topics in your local area; b) writes a script apparently using GPT-3 technology; c) uses AI voices to make radio with them. It has the horrible title of “live, local, and powered by AI”.
