Key features

Two ways to make your media more discoverable and valuable

AutoML Video Intelligence

AutoML Video Intelligence has a graphical interface that makes it easy to train your own custom models to classify and track objects within videos, even if you have minimal machine learning experience. It’s ideal for projects that require custom labels that aren’t covered by the pre-trained Video Intelligence API.

Video Intelligence API

Video Intelligence API has pre-trained machine learning models that automatically recognize a vast number of objects, places, and actions in stored and streaming video. Offering exceptional quality out of the box, it’s highly efficient for common use cases and improves over time as new concepts are introduced.

“Video Intelligence allows CBS Interactive to plug into our existing video encoding framework to generate video metadata. The performance and reliability allows us to enhance the video experience.”

Adam Leary, VP, Data Science Services, CBS Interactive
