Satu Keto works at Yleisradio Technology & Development as an Innovation Lead. Her main job is to develop, anticipate, experiment and pilot. For example text-to-speech technologies and content for smart speakers. OR trying to develop the first synthetic character for Yle, to think about ways of non-linear narration for media content, specially for audio content and also to consider future user interfaces and personalisation. As working at Yle Innovations Keto highlights the purpose of Yle Innovation: We recognize possible futures and inspire Yleisradio to move towards them through experimentations. Uncertainties and risks OK. Satu Keto enjoys thinking together, working with inspiring people, thinking far ahead a few years & occasionally looking through sci-fi glasses. If someone says: that is imagination, that is not feasible answer might be: I know - not yet!
AI is changing our business, society and thereby our daily lives. Judging from the general conversation, the next steps will be taken very soon and the progress is getting faster all the time. What does the future look and sound like for our craft and business: From synthetic voices to synthetic presenters? AI built personalities? AI written storytelling... Some of these things are already here and if the future will be more dominated by AI, what is the importance of still feeling and hearing the "human touch" and could it be fabricated by AI?
