Values that lead us


Empowerment of independent media

"Empowering independent, free and pluralistic media is key to a healthy democracy. It promotes transparency, diversity of opinions, and informed public decision-making. Support can be financial, legal, or through capacity-building. It's our shared duty to uphold media and journalists freedom."


Focus on technology for the benefit of all

"We advocate for technology that benefits everyone. Our vision is a future where innovation fosters equality and prosperity, regardless of one's location or status. This commitment drives us to create accessible, inclusive, and impactful solutions."


Comprehensive understanding of AI and technology's impact on media consumption

AI and technology have reshaped media consumption. They've made content more personalized and accessible through AI-driven recommendations and distribution. However, challenges like data privacy and fake news persist. Understanding these impacts is key in our evolving media landscape.


Development of responsible use of technology in the media landscape

"Responsible use of technology in the media is crucial. It involves respecting privacy, promoting transparency, and avoiding misinformation. This enhances information quality, fosters public trust, and contributes to an informed society."
