Jordan Erica Webber is joined by the product manager for the Guardian Voice Lab about a new type of technology it has built. It’s called the Guardian Briefing
The team at Guardian Voice Labs is experimenting with generating an audio news summary by blending human and synthetic voices. It’s designed for Google Assistant and based on existing Guardian journalism and curation.
The idea is to capitalise on the text-to-speech technology on the Assistant platform, and create a new way for people to digest the news of the day.
