STOA: Technical feasibility study for a European streaming platform

Establishing a European digital public sphere where all European citizens can access current affairs would present a great opportunity. Existing platforms often lack democratic discourse and exacerbate polarization by promoting emotionally charged content. Securing European democracies relies on preserving freedom of expression and ensuring access to qualitative and trustworthy content from across the EU and beyond.

The creation of a European streaming platform could serve as a multilingual hub, aggregating high-quality news broadcasts from across Europe. This platform would enable EU citizens to discover and consume content in multiple languages, leveraging advanced AI technologies such as automatic speech recognition, machine translation for subtitles, and even automatic speech-to-speech translation. The recommended study evaluates the technical viability of implementing a European streaming platform.
