Data Technology Seminar 2024

Rai CRITS contributes to EBU DTS2024

The EBU Data Technology Seminar (DTS) is a reference event for operators in the radio and television sector for the in-depth analysis and discussion of technologies related to Artificial Intelligence and data analysis.

It took place in Geneva from 12 to 14 March 2024, and its centrality is confirmed by the participation (more than 130 participants in person, more than a hundred online).

The event program is available to everyone on the website, with presentations ranging from content verification to ontologies used in production, and addressing issues such as model transparency and use of generative artificial intelligence to enrich content.


This year too, Rai CRITS contributed to the success of the event, through participation in Paolo Casagranda’s Program Committee, four presentations, a demo station, as well as the moderation of four sessions by Paolo Casagranda, Maurizio Montagnuolo, and Lorenzo Channel.
