Will.i.am has a new radio show with an AI co-host.

The Black Eyed Peas legend announced that his latest venture, “The FYI Show,” will air on Thursday (Jan. 25) and he will talk about music, pop culture and technology with his digital created co-host named Qd.pi (“cutie pie”).

“I didn’t want to just do a traditional show. I wanted to bring tomorrow close to today, and so I wanted to have my co-host be an AI,” will.i.am told The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m ultra-freaking colorful and expressive. [Qd.pi is] ultra-freaking factual and analytical. And that combination, we ain’t seen in the history of freaking broadcasts anywhere.”
