Collaboration between scientific institutions and industrial sectors has a beneficial impact on the development of AI technology. In recent years, the WASP research Arenas (WARA) have prioritized bridging the gap between research and industry. Specifically, WARA media and language has focused on building a multidisciplinary ecosystem around Media AI. These efforts have facilitated the transfer of knowledge and expertise, as well as the sharing of source, product and data, leading to joint involvement in various projects. This talk introduces some of the activities carried out by the WARA media and language and their contribution to the advancement of AI.
