What will radio be like in 2040? #RadioAsia2019

Thursday 31 October, 2019

In a plenary session on the future of radio at the Radio Asia conference in Bangladesh this week, Steve Ahern took a glimpse forward 20 years in a live audio simulation of the changes ahead.

Putting on a pair of wearable earbuds, a thin strip of plastic that attached to the ear lobe, Ahern explained that the vibrations from the wearables work like headphones, expect that they stimulate the ear canal to put sound directly into his head, and use skull cavity resonance to generate the bass sounds.

How to train your smart speaker

Thursday 30 May, 2019

Analysis from Steve Ahern.
 
 
 
 
Smart speakers are not quite as smart as we are led to believe.
 
I have no doubt that coming generations of smart speakers will deliver huge amounts of voice driven artificial intelligence powered interactivity that will benefit the radio and audio industries, but we’re not there yet.
 
The current generation of smart speakers are actually pretty dumb. They rely on tightly controlled routines and they try to train us rather than us training them.
