AI-Curated Podcast Apps

'Scout FM' Finds Podcasts and Plays Them Through Amazon Alexa

— June 1, 2018 — Tech
The podcast industry is in the midst of a boom, and there are more of the programs available now than there have ever been during the medium's relatively short tenure; 'Scout FM' is a new platform that helps people to discover the content that's best suited to their tastes. The app uses artificial intelligence to analyze the types of programs that each user most enjoys, as selected from a human-picked list of the best options out there, thus combining the volume efficacy of AI with ineffable human tastes.

When first using Scout FM, listeners will be treated to podcasts from the app's list of top shows in a variety of categories. As they listen, they can use Alexa's voice recognition to tell the app which shows they like and don't like, and Scout FM's AI will assess those tastes and return with even better options in the future.
