Media Tech Initiative

Digital Transformation of Media

The media industry is in the midst of a fundamental transformation. The boundaries between media producers and consumers are dissolving, while personalised content is occupying an increasingly prominent position.

Data science and information technology plays a central role in this process. With the new “Media Tech-Initiative” ETH Zurich will establish a new group dedicated to research and education related to the digital transformation of media.

The media technology initiative is part of ETH Zurich’s university-wide efforts to expand its involvement in the data sciences. Considerable resources will be put into establishing new research and teaching activities (professorships, infrastructure, hardware, projects). Starting in autumn 2017, ETH is introducing a new master’s programme in data science. The professorship will provide a solid foundation for media technology at ETH Zurich and offer talented young professionals the training they need to break into a changing market.

As a partner of this initiative you are at the forefront of development. By interacting with young talents and identifying challenges, you can contribute to finding new ideas and solutions for future services and products.
