This Guy Made an Ad Blocker That Works on Podcasts and Radio

AdBlock Radio is an adblocker for live radio streams and podcasts. It detects audio ads with machine-learning and Shazam-like techniques

Alexandre Storelli, creator of AdBlock Radio, has been working on it for more than three years and that it uses techniques such as speech recognition, acoustic fingerprinting, and machine learning to detect known ad formats. It uses a crowdsourced database of ads and “acoustic fingerprinting,” which converts audio features into a series of numbers that can be combed by an algorithm.
