WARA Media – A new arena for multidisciplinary research and innovation

In December 2020, WASP launched a new research arena to place Media AI at the centre of a multidisciplinary ecosystem of scientific fields and industry segments. The arena is a recognition of the value of media AI in process automation, for example, in the facilitation of remote control in forestry, in the creation of virtual verification environments for autonomous machinery and in the generation of non-playable characters in gaming.

The purpose of the arena is to foster collaboration between researchers and industry partners, and to provide data management and benchmarking services, coupled with engineering and legal support. The initiative is backed by WASP researchers at the partner universities and representatives of central industry segments.
