The first DJ to be controlled by artificial intelligence (AI) was debuted by the Portland, Oregon-based radio station KBFF Live 95.5 FM, credited with making history. The station, which Alpha Media owns, has partnered with Futuri Media to use its RadioGPT software. This will allow the station to transmit a computer-generated version of their host, Ashley Elzinga.
Phil Becker, Executive Vice President of Content at Alpha Media, believes that introducing AI will result in the radio station becoming more adaptable than ever before. They can display their content creators in new and frequent instances thanks to RadioGPT, which enables them to provide their audiences and clients with timely and comprehensive information.
Elzinga is shown introducing her listeners to the new AI host in a tweet that the station distributed. Using the artificially intelligent voice to repeat back her remarks gives the impression that the recording is easy. The chatty and easygoing manner in which the AI Ashley speaks is strikingly similar to that of the honest Ashley.
