On WEDNESDAY AUGUST 24th, from 1-4p CT, KROV-HD2/SAN ANTONIO will be making history by becoming the first radio station to have an artificial intelligent radio personality, heretofore known as "DENISE." KROV can be streamed on the station's web page at www.krovfm.com and also with the smart phone application "TuneIn."
KTFM/SAN ANTONIO's DOMINIQUE GARCIA, who is working on 'DENISE,' told ALL ACCESS, "Artificial intelligence has been a topic that has intrigued technology enthusiasts for decades. While such a concept was considered nothing short of science fiction in the latter half of the 20th century, today it has become very real and now a very practical technology. In early 2011 I stumbled across a computer program made by GUILE LINDROTH and GUILE 3D STUDIOS. The software acted as a virtual assistant that assisted humans with everyday life."
Continued GARCIA, "I wanted to show the program to a few fellow radio associates of mine. To impress them, I jokingly set her up to do a mock on-air shifts. After a few tests I had a horrifying realization. I confirmed my idea that the software could perform the job of an on-air personality was in fact practical. While the software was not designed primarily for this purpose, it still does not take away the fact that it can in fact perform the occupation of talking on the air. I was sure that I had come across something that could greatly impact the radio broadcasting industry."
