Deepwave has released an AI radio transceiver. It’s got bits and chips that mean you can run AI applications on radio frequencies. 📡

The post contains some interesting potential use cases, but I’m having more fun imagining all kinds of weird AI radio futures. Being a podcast nerd and having a weird nostalgia for the golden age of radio I never experienced just makes this idea sound cool. 🕶

A smart radio that learns your preferences and auto-tunes to shows and music you would like. A radio that will announce sports scores during a music program on another station. A radio that interprets a TV broadcast and turns it into a radio show, adding context and narration and not just playing the show’s audio portion. An emergency radio that always monitors the weather bands and announces when alerts or warnings go into effect. 💬
