Future and Emerging Technologies for the Media Sector

MediaRoad

Abstract

The second Vision Paper by MediaRoad’s Policy Hub analyses the potential impact of six technological trends (Artificial Intelligence (AI), Immersive technologies, Blockchain, 5G, Internet of Things (IoT) and Convergence) on the media sector together with their political, social and economic consequences.

Based on the analysis, the paper puts forward policy recommendations with the aim of supporting a positive impact of these technologies on European society. The technological trends considered are at different stages of development and, as a consequence, some of them

have already consistent European policy and legal frameworks established and running; others are at a less mature stage of development and societal appropriation.Full report
