AI4Media aims to establish a Centre of Excellence on AI and Media, connecting AI researchers, ICT industry and media organisations across Europe, making sure that the European values of ethical and trustworthy AI are embedded in future AI deployments, and re-imagining AI as a beneficial enabling technology in the service of Society and Media. The ambition of AI4Media is to connect the fragmented European AI landscape and establish the EU as a strong international competitor through a unique European brand of Media AI.
Artificial Intelligence is already changing the media industry through advances in content synthesis, analysis, and distribution, but also by offering new deeper insights into the complex and rapidly evolving social processes that unfold online and offline, by sensing citizen activities, interests, and opinions. Empowered by AI-based support across the value chain, the media has the power more than ever before to nurture a democratic society, to improve our lives, and to support our creativity. At the same time, the use of AI poses considerable ethical challenges and risks for individuals and society. Motivated by these opportunities, challenges, and risks, the AI4Media Network of Excellence is building a wide network of researchers across Europe, focusing on AI for the media, society and democracy.
