AI and Data

Helping public service media leverage the potential of AI and data

About

Artificial intelligence (AI) and data are central themes for public service media (PSM) today, especially when it comes to strengthening and personalizing relationships with its citizens.

Well adapted AI and data strategies can help PSM organizations in many different ways including understanding cross-platform audiences, creating powerful data journalism stories, enhancing the audience experience, boosting content creation via data-driven editorial production and programming, streamlining business processes, and identifying new products and services to offer.

The AI and Data Initiative is a cross-disciplinary exploration of the opportunities and challenges of AI and data in PSM, including regulatory aspects, technologies, organizational matters, skills, strategy and content developments.

The initiative serves as a hub for all sorts of AI and data related questions. Our team works together with a number of other services at the EBU, and in particular our Technology & Innovation Strategic Programmes. The initiative also helps make the voice of our Members heard on a European and global level by taking part in public consultations.

This transversal initiative driven by Members provides, among other things, regular community discussions, quarterly micro-workshops, and educational opportunities, with the aim to share knowledge and best practice, integrate efforts, and collaboratively identify needs and priorities.
