Project

Interactive Radio

Radio news programs are most valuable when hands and eyes are busy, such as during the morning commute or while working in the kitchen. But radio news is presented in small segments and only at scheduled times. This project seeks to compile audio news from a number of sources, segment stories based on acoustic and possibly semantic cues, and present these on demand in an interactive environment, such as over the telephone or on a computer workstation.
