Announced this week, Audioburst, the audio search and delivery platform, is now available on the HARMAN Ignite Store, a connected vehicle platform that connects consumers with content providers. The Audioburst Android Automotive app is now available through the HARMAN Ignite Store to augment vehicle infotainment systems, providing drivers and passengers alike with unprecedented personalization and access to the world’s largest searchable library of talk audio content.
Audioburst APIs provide OEMs with powerful user analytics and unique monetization opportunities. By enabling customers to use Audioburst, OEMs can now collect driver data as it relates to content consumption. This data can be leveraged to inform subscriptions or advertisements, helping to generate new revenue streams.
Audioburst enables its automotive partners such as HARMAN, as well as mobile apps, websites, and connected devices, to expand their offerings by tapping into Audioburst’s content library and delivering advanced personalized listening experiences.
The company’s innovative AI technology listens to thousands of podcasts and radio stations 24/7. It analyzes and indexes hundreds of millions of minutes of long-form content and cuts it into short-form audio clips, called “bursts.” Keywords, entities, sentiment and additional metadata features are extracted to ensure the most accurate topical segmentation.
The bursts are then grouped together into playlists to provide listeners with a recommended content stream based on trending topics, past behavior, and defined keywords and interests. These can be as broad as “Tech” and “Business” or as specific as “Ariana Grande,” “LA Lakers,” and “Pfizer stock.”
Audioburst, the Audio Search and Delivery Platform, makes audio content accessible to users, whenever they want it and wherever they are. A powerful suite of API and SDK solutions enable app developers, web publishers, automotive companies, and device makers to tap into the world’s largest indexed library of fresh talk audio content. Adding a layer of informative, entertaining, and inspiring short-form audio content streams increases the user experience and introduces new monetization opportunities for Audioburst partners such as Hyundai, Samsung, and Flipboard.
