Every production process in the film- and TV production, from generating ideas to post production via sales and marketing, can benefit from AI generated tools to control them in a better and more effective way. At the same time these new technologies are confronting us with complex new challenges, e.g. the change of standards in legal as well as in biased and ethical questions.

The conference will deal with the effects of AI systems on film and media production in the following areas: script development, film editing, pre-production processes, packaging, financing, distribution and marketing. Current AI tools and technologies will be presented by AI service providers and their applicability will be discussed with experts from science and the industry.

Part 2

Part 2: Legal and Ethical Parameters of AI

AI Systems are data-driven and dependent on the data, by which they are fed. Which makes it even more important to collect and analyse reliable data and to use it responsibly. Safety and security must be guaranteed. Most notably when it comes to intellectual property the risk of breaching copyrights or personal rights is high. How can a responsible dealing with AI Systems be managed? Which ethical standards are needed? And furthermore, what societal repercussions can be expected?
