No Comments on Google rolls out Google Cloud Video intelligence API public beta; updates Cloud Vision API

The Google Cloud Video intelligence API, first released in March 2017, uses

machine learning to make videos searchable and discoverable, by extracting

metadata which is also used to index video content.


														
							

Google Cloud Video intelligence API can be integrated with applications to introduce capabilities such as content moderation, content recommendations, and contextual advertising. Of the new features introduced in the beta release is pornographic content detection.

Since the API contains a library of 20,000 labels, those not possessing extensive knowledge in machine learning or computer vision can also use it.

Enhancements to the updated Cloud Vision API include (but are not limited to) increased label detection model vocabulary (now more than 10,000 entities), improved text detection model specifically regarding recall on Latin languages, and the addition of Google Image Search-powered web detection.

The updated Cloud Vision API also includes capabilities for web and document detection for general use that enable users to search for and find similar images on the web as well as the associated video metadata.

The updates to the Google Cloud Vision API will be rolled out within the next three weeks.
