“Our role in the project is to support the indexing and search of social content, helping radio stations to get more out of their interactions on social media, better understand the issues that are discussed on their shows and respond faster to online comments.” Meet George Ioannidis, Director at IN2.
“The major point is getting the confidence of the users and being as transparent as possible.” Meet Erich Schweighofer, professor at Vienna University. With more than twenty years of experience of funded research in legal informatics, Erich undertakes measures to safeguard privacy within the MARCONI project.
“I started my career by developing a single-source publishing system together with Dennis Laupman, which is how the company Pluxbox was born.” Meet Cas Adriani, Technical Director at Pluxbox and technical lead of the MARCONI integrated platform.
“I typically use design thinking as a research approach to understand the design problem in its complexity. Prototypes and mock-ups are designed and developed through ideation, iteration and critiquing solutions with end-users. I believe it is valuable to also design the research experience: end-users are more engaged in the process when they can connect to the problem.” As User Researcher at VRT Innovation, Sandy Claes is an expert in design and co-creation of viable solutions to the real user problems.
“We’re going full force on interactivity. This means numerous integrations with third party platforms but also with systems currently used by the various radio stations. This also means tools and optimisations for the editorial team, such as conversational management with chatbots and smart analysis for filtering and linking content from various sources.” As Lead Developer at VRT Innovation, Rik Bauwens is experienced in translating ideas into workable prototypes.
We interrupt this blog for a very important announcement: Faction XYZ has joined the MARCONI consortium! We are very excited to be working together with this applied artificial intelligence engineering service provider and tackle new challenges with their language processing services. Introductions are in order: meet Faction XYZ!
Interaction and community are key in the future of radio. But how are we able to collect, manage and use input from various interfaces in an efficient way? Enter the MARCONI platform. Have a look at this third use case and find out how radio presenter Jan and listener Bernd are able to co-create stories on the radio.
