The Artificial Intelligence and Data Initiative (AIDI) puts a spotlight on the BBC and their work on AI and data, both in R&D and production.

This event, taking place on 27 September at 16:00, is the second instalment of a new series of virtual visits of EBU Members focusing on their AI-related work. We invite participants to look for commonalities, opportunities for contributions, collaborations with the BBC and get to know their work and team members.
