The International Symposium on Artificial Intelligence and its Application on Media (ISAIAM 2022) was held this weekend. The event, organised by Xijing University and co-organised by the AEIC Academic Exchange Centre, was held virtually from 10 to 12 June. Juan Manuel Corchado, director of the BISITE Research Group and president of the AIR Institute, participated as a speaker to present some of the uses and applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it has been key to the development of the projects of our research group.

The conference focused on the research fields of artificial intelligence and intelligent media, in addition to providing experts, academics, engineers from different universities, research institutes and companies with a platform for sharing academic research results, exploring cutting-edge engineering issues and discussing current opportunities and challenges. To promote international cooperation and communication and the industrialisation of scientific research results.

Application of AI in BISITE projects

Juan Manuel Corchado has presented several projects that we are developing in BISITE. As a research group, we are specialised in the development of artificial intelligence tools and we work in different areas such as biomedicine, robotics, cybersecurity, fintech or blockchain. Several demonstrations of the latest technologies developed by the AIR Institute were also given.

During the session, in which Corchado participated as keynote speaker, Noixion, iMira and WDiarium, were presented. In these three platforms, technologies such as AI and Blockchain are used for the audiovisual aspects and for news publication. In summary, is a video-on-demand platform where any creator can upload their content and monetise it using cryptocurrencies and their own token., meanwhile, allows for the creation of private rooms where users can share content and jointly view everything from sporting events to congresses and film cycles. Lastly, is a digital newspaper in which anyone can publish their articles and monetise them. The technology used in this tool makes it possible to control news items and to produce news items automatically from sources from all over the world.

It was an excellent opportunity to underscore the impact of artificial intelligence and all that we have achieved thanks to it.
