Mr SPEAKER/AI

Abstract

Mr Speaker is an audio-first news platform that aims to make professional investigative journalism more engaging.

Inspiration and Method

Today’s news is ubiquitous. The lines are blurred between significant news events and the rest of the noise on social media causing the important issues to disappear. Investigative journalism, typically a slower yet deeper form of news, is now considered a luxury for newsrooms and is in need of a new business model.

Result

My design outcome envisions the following:
- How we might monitor and understand long-running news stories
- How we might have more meaningful conversations about these stories with the help of an intelligent personal agent and knowledge navigator
- How a voice interface product for the home might look and function in the near future
