you ever been trying to remember the name of a movie, but it just wouldn’t come
to you? It can be incredibly frustrating, both for you and for the people who
have to listen to you repeat, over and over again, “you know, it’s the one with
the guy from that other thing.” Well, now there’s a solution.
week, AI technology firm Valossa introduced its flagship video recognition
service called Val.ai. According to Valossa, Val.ai “is uniquely capable of
analyzing movies and videos in real-time to identify more than one thousand
concepts (e.g. places, objects and themes) from any video stream.”
the AI has identified the hundreds or thousands of concepts within a video, it
makes them all searchable in real-time. For example, if you enter the query
“Tom Cruise kills aliens,” Edge of Tomorrow is the first result.Although
that one works, the technology is clearly still in the development stage.
