The BBC, in collaboration with Rosina Sound, is working on an interactive radio play for artificial intelligence-enabled home chatbots like Amazon’s Echo and Google Home.
Check out VB Summit on October 23-24 in Berkeley, a high-level, invite-only AI event for business leaders.
The story’s narrator will ask you, the listener, questions throughout the story.
The questions are designed so the listener doesn’t have to step out of the story to consider their decision, but instead feels like they’re a character in the story.
The creators of the play said they took inspiration from games like The Stanley Parable and Papa Sangre, and authors such as Franz Kafka and Douglas Adams.
The story became, in the creators’ own words, “a comedy science-fiction audio drama.”
