As part of MARCONI, public broadcaster NPO and service provider Faktion developed a chatbot for the radio station NPO Radio 5. Listeners are able to ask questions about the different radio shows (time and day, what is it about, who is the presenter), the DJ’s, songs, competitions and more general frequently asked questions such as “How can I listen to the station abroad?” or “How can I listen to a programme that’s already been broadcasted?”. Via smart connection with the editorial radio system, questions about programmes, songs and DJ’s could be automatically answered, as all the information is already available.

As of 2006, Flemish radio station Studio Brussels organises the yearly charity event Music for Life, as part of the “Warmest Week”. Studio Brussel calls on their listeners to set up a campaign for a cause that lies close to their hearts.

In this blog post, you can find an overview of what MARCONI contributed and piloted at Music for Life.
