Launch Announcement - “Translated A.I. Video Search” to break Language Barriers for Video Search in Washington D.C.

Washington DC, 5 March 2018: - Babbobox officially announces the launch of the World’s First “Translated A.I. Video Search” at the Microsoft Tech Summit held in Washington DC, United States.

Humans are not only divided geographically, but also by language. Today, we are lifting this language barrier and allowing video search in a language that you do not understand.

Imagine you are doing research on Japanese culture and the only language that you know is English. How would you research videos that are in Japanese? The simple answer is, you can’t. That’s because even with the best search engines today, can only search for words in the same language that you enter. Meaning, if you key in English and there will not any results because the videos are in Japanese.

Language is the BIGGEST Search barrier today.

What our “Translated A.I. Video Search” does is that it allows you to search in another language. Meaning, you can search a Japanese video in English (or any other language that you choose) and we will bring you to exactly where this word is said in the video. We can do that in 600 different language pairs.

What this means is that these videos in Japanese are no longer limited by the language barrier and the knowledge within these videos are now made available not just to watch, but also to be search.

Allowing you to unleash your video library’s true potential by allowing your audience to search your videos in their own languages. In the process, we also automatically create a massive amount of Video SEO in multiple languages, thus, allowing other search engines to index and search your videos!

From the extracted video data, we use various NLP (Natural Language Processing) techniques to transform the unstructured big data into a language that you understand, where you can further analysis, turning data into intelligence.

As of today, our Search Engine has the following languages supported:

  • Speech Recognition - 12 languages
  • Video OCR - 26 languages
  • Documents - 100+ languages
  • Translated Search – 600+ language pairs

Caught up with Scott Guthrie. Held so many in-depth discussion with so many UK enterprises, universities, government agencies, etc. If we have our way, our stuff might even end up in Scotland Yard! So let's see... 

Good-bye Birmingham... Next stop, Trump-capital Washington in March! I'm excited already...

ANNOUNCEMENT: Global Launch of World’s First “Video Search Engine with Interactive Results”

Birmingham, 24 January 2018: - Babbobox and Infini Videos officially announce the launch of the world’s first  “Video Search Engine with Interactive Results” at the Microsoft Tech Summit held in Birmingham, United Kingdom today.

Both tech start-ups Babbobox and Infini Videos believe the future of video search lies in immediate content relevance. Video has proven to be the hardest medium to index because there is so much detail.  Aside from the metadata that an editor may have typed in, most archived videos are essentially unstructured data.  Often, this is because transcripts are not made and scripts are lost, or there isn’t sufficient timing information to align with the video.

To make sense of this data, techniques such as Speech Recognition, Video OCR, Image analysis and various Cognitive and Artificial Intelligence are applied to extract data from media. Since much of the videos in archives contains speech, therefore automatic transcription is a great first step in extracting data from media. With the transcript, an editor is able to search for timecodes in source videos, scrub through those sources, and manually locate viable scenes. This manual process is time-consuming, and not suitable for public use since a text search result does not make for a watchable video.

The innovative “Video Search Engine with Interactive Results” that Babbobox and Infini Videos have co-produced, allows a user to search a topic, and immediately view the search results as an interactive video. One is able to immediately choose scenes within the video that are relevant to the search. With the full-automation of the indexing and the output scene selection, productivity is enhanced and content for the public will scale up. The platform promises increased productivity as it will provide users with fine control over topics and sources, and allow editors to focus on the direction of the stories.

Babbobox and Infini Videos believe that this will be the future of Video Search.

What is a Video Search Engine? Part V – Detecting Objects

After discussing the ability to video search for Speech, Text, Motion, Face and Emotions, the next big element class is “Objects”.

video search engine object detection

Essentially, it is an analysis tool that extracts metadata from a video and defines important objects or entities inside a video. Object detection has come to a point where it can detect objects or entities (like cat, flower, computer, etc.) and pinpoint the exact location there is the scene(s) appear inside the video.

The purpose of Object Detection is to help us better understand the overall content of our videos based on objects detected within the video. It also gives uas a time-based understanding on when each object appears within the video. Object Detection basically uses tagging and domain-specific models to identify content and label it with confidence.

Like other vision type of video searches, Computer Vision scientists developed Object Recognition based on the deep learning technology developed using deep neural network models to detect and label thousands of objects and scenes in videos.

With Object Detection, it is now possible to search every moment of every video file in your video library and catalog to find every objects as well as its importance.

To find out more about how you can detect objects inside your videos, visit VideoSpace Video Search Engine or our Video-Search-as-a-Service.

Announcement – Adding “Object Detection” to VideoSpace Search Engine

We are delighted to announce that we are adding “Object Detection” capability to our Video Search Engine.

This is a significant milestone as it enhances our already extensive video search capabilities. Thus, establishing VideoSpace Search Engine’s as one of the most powerful Video Search Engine in the world.

With Object Detection, this is the list of elements that we can index and search inside videos:

  • Objects (NEW!)
  • Speech
  • Text
  • Motion
  • Face
  • Emotion
  • Offensive Content
  • Custom (e.g. Logos, Objects, Landmarks, etc.)

The new “Object Detection” feature enables us to detect entities (like cat, flower, computer, etc.) and pinpoint the exact location there is the scene(s) appear inside videos.

For example, in this short four minute VIDEO, we are able to:

  • detect 111 unique entities
  • mark exactly where these 111 entities appear

What is a Video Search Engine? Part IV – Detecting Faces and Emotions

The ability to detect faces has been around for some time for real time CCTV systems. However, these systems out of reach for many as they are expensive and would need specialized implementation that would drive the cost up higher. Therefore, detecting faces from videos instead is a viable alternative because it instantly adds face detection ability to any CCTV system.

Detecting faces allows you to count, track movements by detecting unique faces. Face detection finds and tracks human faces within a video. Multiple faces can be detected and subsequently be tracked as they move around.

video search engine face detection

This will be useful to analyze human traffic within a mall, street or even a restaurant or café. It would be possible to identify and track movement of unique human faces. Therefore, it is possible to perform a headcount of human traffic within the video. 

Beyond detecting faces, it is more possible to detect emotions. Emotion Detection is an extension of the Face Detection video search that returns analysis on multiple emotional attributes from the faces detected, for example happiness, sadness, fear, anger, etc.

video search engine emotion detection

Recognizing the emotion of a person or crowd over time based allows us to track the emotional highs and lows within a particular time-frame. It also allows us to track someone’s emotions at a specific point of time. Answering questions like, how did the crowd react when the President makes a particular point? With emotion detection, it can be applicable to gauge audience responses in scenarios like:

  • Speeches
  • Focus groups
  • Group reactions
  • Interviews

Emotion detection can form a very good baseline for the scenarios above.
