Radio evolves: New Radio Day 2017

Rai Centre for Researche and Technology Innovation presents Personalised Radio at the New Radio Day 2017

Rai Centre for Research and Innovation of Technology presented its research on linear radio personalisation at the New Radio Day 2017 EBU event. Although linear radio represents the most popular and profitable form of radio, new ways of listening are gaining ground thanks to advent of new technologies: listening on tablets and smartphones, audio-on-demand, voice controlled devices, just to name a few of them.

In this context, Dr. Paolo Casagranda presented Crit research activities on personalised linear radio. Audio content is decoupled from a strictly linear model making the listening experience more flexible: the listener can skip some programmes, search for concepts in audio content, obtain interesting audio-on-demand, automatically replace linear programmes with suggested audio using a proactive recommender engine.

The EBU New Radio Day is an annual event, hosting innovative projects, best practices and researches from European radio innovators. Invited presenters represent some of the major European broadcasters, as BBC, RTE, Rai, SR and the EBU itself. This year the event was held in Munich, on October 26th and 27th, hosted by Bayerische Rundfunk.
