Yle has released three datasets with an experimental license for a limited amount of time to support the development of language and media related technologies. These datasets were originally created by the MeMAD research and innovation project, a collaboration between media industry members and research groups. The MeMAD project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 780069.


The data is available for research purposes upon specific request from Yle. The party requesting the data has to be located in Finland to gain access to the data (but your other project partners do not need to be).
