Explicit content detection

Explicit Content Detection detects adult content within a video. Adult content is generally inappropriate for those under 18 years of age and includes, but is not limited to, nudity, sexual activities, and pornography. Such content detected in cartoons or anime is also identified.

Explicit content detection annotates a video with explicit content annotations (tags) for entities that are detected in the video or video segments provided. The response returns a video frame timestamp where the explicit content is detected.

To detect explicit content in a video, call the annotate method and specify EXPLICIT_CONTENT_DETECTION in the features field.

Check out the Video Intelligence API visualizer to see this feature in action.

For an example, see Analyzing Videos for Explicit Content.
