Podcast as an instrument for new media has unlocked many doors to research in the audio space. The ease with which this format can be produced and consumed in terms of personalization has made it a favourite with content creators in the digital media industry. And like all other mass media, this, too, continues to undergo a science and tech transformation.
We present to you a podcast on podcasts—a conversation with our principal scientists, Niranjan Pedanekar and Dr. Sunil Kumar Kopparapu, on technological research in audio and speech processing. With a lens on podcasting, both scientists share their thoughts on progress in the audio and audio analytics space.
Their interaction touches upon how larger media spaces can be leveraged to tackle new applications for podcasts, the increasing scale and size of the podcast audience, and the personalization and scalability of applications.
