On March 8th, 2017, Google launched the Cloud Video Intelligence Application Programming interface (API) at the Google Cloud Next Conference. This API is useful for analyzing what are the videos is all about and to detect what’s within them. It lets users find videos containing particular things.
The organization who are interested must fill out a form for getting access to the new API. Google is already working on the content side of the videos and also focused on the release set to advance research. They have previously externalized the existing capabilities in speech and image recognition.
“Cloud Video Intelligence API uses powerful deep learning models, built using frameworks like TensorFlow and applied on large-scale media platforms like YouTube,” Fei-Fei Li, chief scientist for Google Cloud artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, wrote in a blog post.
The Amazon web services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure are two biggest public cloud competitors of Google. These two do not offer this functionality but a startup called clarify does. Google also disclosed that Cloud Machine Learning Engine has launched its beta version same as Google’s Cloud Datalab.
