What is this?

Encouraged by friends in the Tokyo Tech community, this podcast uses AI to generate natural English summaries of Japanese tech news stories, which are then converted into human-sounding speech. The result is short, easy-to-digest English tech news updates that are directly from a Japanese source.

Simiarly, I also made a site and podcast providing general news from Japan (Japan Daily News).

Technology used
