A.I. DJ Gets An On-Air Job in Texas

If you thought the morning zoo crew on your local radio station were about as entertaining as robots, there may be more truth in that then you thought. One station in San Antonio has “hired” an artificially intelligent DJ named “Denise” to talk to listeners. Is this the end of the traditional radio DJ?

Meet Denise. She is not a real person, but instead, a personal assistant conjured up by Guile 3D Studio. She used to be a AI secretary, starting Aug 24th, she’ll be promoted to AI DJ at KROV in San Antonio. Denise cost a meager $200 when she was “hired” as a personal assistant to answer phone calls, Google things for people, check emails and make appointments. You know, the same kind of things you have your intern do after you’ve bought him for $200. It was radio personality Dominique Garcia‘s idea to promote Denise to DJ.
