The Artifical Intelligence and Data Initiative (AIDI) puts a spotlight on Deutsche Welle (DW) and some of its AI efforts. What are they doing in terms of AI applications in the areas of human language technologies, disinformation, data gathering and analysis, and where do they want to go? They will tell you all about it at the next AIDI sync call on 25 October from 16:00 to 17:30 CET.

This event is the third 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 DW, and to get to know their work and team members.

The session will be led by Ruth Kühn, DW technology manager, and Peggy van der Kreeft, Human Language Technology innovation manager
