The future of podcasting is adaptive, open and data ethical

A workshop from EMF 2022 by Ian Forrester

On Friday June 3, 2022 at in Workshop 5

BBC R&D have been working on reinventing podcasting in a open and data ethical way.

Imagine making podcasts that sound different based on what time your listening, where they are and what language is their default. Imagine up to 100+ layers of audio including binaural audio and text to speech to round off a new podcast experience.

This is only the start of what adaptive podcasting can do.

In this 2 part workshop.

Part 1: We will explore what adaptive podcasting is, how it works and what are the possibilities, and a few demos of what has been done so far. There will be lots of time for questions and answers.

Part 2: Will have you experimenting and creating your own podcasts using the web editor and/or directly with code. The results can be shared with others in the camp and the wider community.
