Auddia Announces Breakthrough in AI and Natural Language Processing Technology for Podcasts
Auddia Engineers Have Successfully Combined Natural Language Processing and the Company’s AI Audio-classification Algorithm to Create a New AI Model
The New Model can be Applied to Podcasts to Deliver Ad-free Listening in Exchange for a Micropayment Shared With Creators
BOULDER, CO, June 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire – Auddia Inc. (NASDAQ:AUUD) (NASDAQ:AUUDW) ("Auddia" or the "Company"), developer of a proprietary AI platform for audio and innovative technologies for podcasts that is reinventing how consumers engage with audio, announced today that it has successfully combined its AI algorithm with natural language processing in a new audio classification model that can be applied to podcasts to deliver ad-free listening.
Auddia launched its faidr audio Superapp in February of 2022 and recently released faidr 3.0, which adds podcasts and an exclusive content offering branded as faidrRadio. The app utilizes Auddia’s proprietary AI-based audio-classification algorithm to deliver ad-free AM/FM listening. The new AI model, when it is fully rolled out, is expected to be added to faidr to deliver ad-free podcasts.
“We’ve been conducting basic research with natural language processing and exploring how NLP can be combined with our core AI technology for audio content analysis,” said Michael Lawless, CEO of Auddia. “In our current development phase, the ability to deliver ad-free podcasts is a clear application and can be executed within the faidr app, as a SaaS offering to podcast networks, or even an integrated solution for other podcasting apps.”
The Company is considering the applications of its new ad-free podcast model and will announce plans for its launch later this year.
Auddia is planning to launch the faidr 3.0 product in Android in early Q3. iOS users can visit https://apps.apple.com/us/app/faidr/id1567629951 to download the faidr 3.0 Superapp.
