A.I. airport announcements rollout in Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport
Guangzhou - The Terminal One of Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport has officially begun using A.I. powered public broadcast with synthetic speech after months of testing.
Using TTS, the newly adopted AI powered broadcast replaces traditional airport announcements that is done by airport staffs. This format provide a clearer and easier to understand guidance in both Chinese and English.
Previous broadcasting systems only allows for pre-recorded messages, whereas the new system allows for real time, customizable contents. Airports require a large number of announcements that previously needed trained airport staff to announce. The new system is simple to operate and can generate written words into speech in real time, while offering different speech rate and intonation to sound more like a real person.
The new system will also included baggage information, airline status, and other airport use-cases.
