Vast amounts of data today are locked in video: cell phone cameras, drone cameras, traffic cameras, security cameras and CCTV are all generating increasing volumes of data that could unlock powerful insights if it could be properly analyzed. Human analysis is effective, but doesn't scale. Enter IBM Watson.
At the National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas on Monday, IBM announced plans for a Watson-powered cloud service that brings together artificial intelligence (AI) and the IBM Cloud to extract insights from video. The initial focus will be helping media and entertainment (M&E) companies better harness their unstructured data.
