Life with Bixby is equal parts futuristic and frustrating Vocal Assistant [Prepa VoiceUI] | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

In the future, the voice of Bixby -- Samsung's virtual assistant -- will ring forth from refrigerators and smart speakers and who knows what else. No wonder the company is taking its time with it. For those who really can't wait, Bixby's voice interface is available as a preview you can access now.
I spent the last few days chatting with Bixby as often as possible. Our time together has been ... eye-opening, to say the least.

BuzzFeed’s new audio morning briefing was made for Amazon Alexa

BuzzFeed’s new audio morning briefing was made for Amazon Alexa | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
Instead of waking up and checking their phones for the latest push notifications, newsletters or podcast episodes, BuzzFeed's audience can now just ask for the morning's top news.

The digital news organization launched a new morning briefing Wednesday that was made for smart speakers with hands-free voice services, such as the Amazon Echo. The briefing, titled Reporting to You, is typically a two- to four-minute audio roundup of the day's most important news delivered by a different BuzzFeed reporter every day, with topics ranging from the latest emoji updates to the Senate's health care bill.

"We wanted to make something that stood out, sounded different and — most importantly — sounded human," said Eleanor Kagan, director of audio for BuzzFeed News. "I think this is a natural extension of the work BuzzFeed does to reach people on the platform ... what we value here is experimenting on different platforms, and this seems like an ideal place to do that."

One of the main goals of Reporting to You is informing people who don't have a lot of time to spare. Listeners can activate the morning briefing by asking Alexa what the news is or telling the speaker to play the briefing, said Roxanne Emadi, editor of news curation at BuzzFeed.

Reverse engineering emotions in an immersive audio mix format [Prepa #AudioGaming]

Reverse engineering emotions in an immersive audio mix format [Prepa #AudioGaming] | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
The idea of immersive mixing is not new. Yet, the concept of adapting it to achieve an emotional story telling and audience control is still something that can be pushed forward.

Looking at the developments happening in the world of cinema and home audio, the idea of bringing the spectator to engage with the story is now a reality.

The Idea is to propose various techniques of mixing and audio processing along with the emotional impact into this world so that the artistic intention of the creator with the viewer is bridged and rather than having an audience that sees a movie, it is time to have the audience experience the story.

It will span from the art of psychological placements of sounds to designed and interpreted spaces that replicate a human emotion when replayed.

How blockchain is used in media and advertising - Digiday Prepa #Blockchain

How blockchain is used in media and advertising - Digiday Prepa #Blockchain | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Use in media

Monetization: This week, blockchain content distribution platform Decent announced the launch of Publiq, a “rewarding” process that will let writers and creators distribute content on the blockchain and get paid immediately.


Advanced TV: A new technology by Comcast’s advanced advertising group lets brands make ad buys on both broadcast and OTT TV using blockchain technology. The group, which has brought together Disney, Altice USA, the U.K.’s Channel 4 and TG1 Group in Italy, plans to — in 2018 — let marketers, publishers and programmers share data without having to pool it in any one place. A CPG marketer, for example, would be able to use data from a content producer like Hulu to understand how to target its ad buys without receiving the actual data itself.


Fraud: In June, MetaX and the Data & Marketing Association launched adChain, an open protocol on the Ethereum blockchain that tags a piece of creative and follows it on the internet to make sure someone sees it, determining who it was as well as what actions were taken afterward. Like Comcast’s approach, adChain lets multiple parts of the industry, from agency to publisher to marketer, work together without dependency.
Whitelisting: MetaX also runs an adChain registry in collaboration with the DMA and ConsenSys that uses a cryptocurrency called “adToken,” which incentivizes people to determine whether a publisher can be whitelisted or not (or is deemed reputable or not). Brands can then decide to spend money only on those publishers.

 

Ad buying: New York Interactive Advertising Exchange, which will be a marketplace where brands, publishers and agencies can buy and sell future ad inventory will launch this year, in partnership with Nasdaq. The idea is to automate contract execution as long as conditions are met. It plans to first support only digital ad buys.

For publishers, Amazon Alexa holds promise but not much money (yet) - Digiday [Prepa #VoiceUI]

For publishers, Amazon Alexa holds promise but not much money (yet) - Digiday [Prepa #VoiceUI] | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
While Echo devices are a relatively new feature in the media landscape, some audio formats accessible through Alexa, including digital radio broadcasts and podcasts, are fairly well established. That’s why some publishers have treated the Alexa Flash Briefings as one more place to park audio products they have already developed. A number of radio stations, including those owned by Federated Media, simply add the listeners tuning in through their stations’ Alexa skills to their total digital broadcast audience numbers. And because the ads in those broadcasts are already inserted to the stream by the time they come through the device, Amazon doesn’t touch these broadcasts’ ads.

Not everybody lumps the Amazon audiences in with the rest of their audio listeners. The New York Times, for example, puts a version of The Daily — a short (and daily) podcast that launched in January — on Alexa devices and Google Home, but it doesn’t count its Alexa audience as part of The Daily’s overall reach and doesn’t monetize those listens.

The stringent rules Amazon has put in place limiting third-party promotions has limited publishers’ opportunities to integrate sponsored content into some of the skills they’ve developed for non-news purposes. While HuffPost has baked host-read ads into its Flash Briefings, it’s been able to put sponsored-content questions into the news quiz it offers on Google Home. In March, the publisher added daily questions about the ABC drama “American Crime” into its quizzes.

A framework for a content-based hybrid content radio [IBC Whitepaper from RAI]

A framework for a content-based hybrid content radio [IBC Whitepaper from RAI] | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
The aim of this paper is to propose hybrid content radio, a new framework for radio content, enhancing the traditional broadcast radio experience and augmenting it with context related audio content.

Differently from most of the commercial recommendation-based internet streaming services (Spotify, Pandora), here we consider systematically adding audio content to an existing, linear audio structure.

The purpose of the hybrid content radio framework is to enhance the broadcaster’s programme schedule with context-aware and personalised audio content from the internet.

The context can be the listener’s profile, emotional state and activity, her geographical position, the weather, and all factors contributing to characterize the state of the listener.

The final purpose of the enhancement is to improve the service user’s’ listening experience, decreasing their propensity to channel-surf and giving them more targeted content, such as local news, entertainment, music and also relevant advertisements.

In this way, the hybrid content radio approach enables both a functional enhancement to radio and network resource optimization, allowing the use of both the broadcast channel and the internet.

Mozilla is crowdsourcing 10,000 hours of audio so anyone can build voice apps

Mozilla is crowdsourcing 10,000 hours of audio so anyone can build voice apps | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
The tech industry is convinced that voice-based interaction will be a big part of our future, and we’ve seen proof of that in AI-powered assistants on our phones and smart speakers. But it’s not easy or cheap to build your own voice recognition system for an app or gadget because that requires plenty of data to learn from.

The folks at Mozilla, who are behind the popular Firefox browser, want to take the stress out of that part of the equation with Common Voice, a project to crowdsource voice samples and validate them. It’ll then make the database freely available to developers who want to train speech-to-text systems for their projects.

The goal is to collect about 10,000 hours of audio in various accents and subsequently release it later this year.

Shazam And Waze Rethink Mobile Creative | AdExchanger

Shazam And Waze Rethink Mobile Creative | AdExchanger | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
While rich media units are engaging, they’re expensive to make and tougher to scale than programmatic banners. But banners look bad on mobile and get a bad rap for ruining the user experience.

Shazam and Waze are two apps championing beautiful mobile creative, but they can do so by relying on other revenue sources. Fifteen-year-old Shazam is on 400 million devices globally and sells half of its inventory programmatically; Waze is owned by Google.

Still, their support of unique creative demonstrates mobile’s advertising potential.

Sounds Like Attribution

Shazam, which used to make money through affiliate links to iTunes, has adopted an advertising-centric revenue model as music consumption habits have shifted to streaming.

Half of Shazam’s inventory is sold programmatically through private exchanges and on the open exchange, said Chief Revenue Officer Greg Glenday. But Shazam works with 70 of the top 200 brand advertisers on custom, direct-sold creative campaigns.
