Motivated by the challenges, risks and opportunities that the widespread use of artificial intelligence (AI) has brought to the media, society and politics, the EU-funded AI4Media project aspires to establish a centre of excellence and a wide network of researchers across Europe and beyond. Its focus will be on delivering the next generation of core AI advances to serve the key sector of media, making sure that European values surrounding ethical and trustworthy AI are embedded in future AI deployments. The project will be supplemented by a funding framework, a PhD programme and a set of use cases to demonstrate the impact of the actions taken on the media sector.
