We are happy to announce Imagga is taking part in a high-impact project run by a consortium of 30 renowned academia, research, and enterprise organizations. AI4Media, which is funded with a total budget of 12M EUR by European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, will focus on delivering the next generation of core AI advances to help media meet the constantly growing requirements but also comply with the core EU values of trustworthiness and ethical engagement. 

Currently, the European AI landscape in the field of media is quite fragmented. AI4Media aims at establishing a networking infrastructure to foster deeper and long-running interactions between academia and industry. A big portion of the project will be dedicated to media AI research and ways to implement the findings in the currently available on the market media solutions. 

In the last 2 years, Imagga has packaged many of its AI technologies into a software solution for telcos, media companies, and platforms. We have built a solution for the automated organization of very large collections and archives of photos and videos. 

Through the AI4Media project, Imagga will build onto that and create a solution that can automatically (re-) organize photo and video content typically used by media companies.

Along with the photo/video content organization for media, we are already busy working on a demonstrator capable of utilizing Imagga’s AI for media content moderation, helping companies and organizations comply with the strict safety and privacy regulations and serve content that’s appropriate for the public eye. By analyzing content, Imagga’s technology can flag NSFW (“not safe for work”) content to easily identify problematic pictures and create automated filtering mechanisms, crucial for platforms that rely heavily on user-generated content.

AI4Media project aspires to widen the network of researchers across Europe and beyond, to foster the development and adoption of AI technologies for media solutions. At Imagga we are thrilled to be part of this exciting collaboration. We strongly believe the outcomes will have a significant impact on the competitive advantage of the European AI industry and especially the media sector.
