Google Cloud Video Intelligence makes videos searchable, and discoverable, by extracting metadata with an easy to use REST API. You can now search every moment of every video file in your catalog. It quickly annotates videos stored in Google Cloud Storage, and helps you identify key entities (nouns) within your video; and when they occur within the video. Separate signal from noise, by retrieving relevant information within the entire video, shot-by-shot, -or per frame. Accuracy is improved over time as new concepts are introduced. Any Google Cloud Platform (GCP) user can use Cloud Video Intelligence API. The API can also separate signals from noise in order to obtain only relevant information from a video, and detect scene changes. You can select the region where processing will take place, choosing from any region where Google Cloud Platform is available. You can also store your videos Google Cloud Storage, which features a consistent API, low-latency, and speed across multiple storage classes.
The Google Cloud Video Intelligence API is currently in public beta.
With the beta release, pornographic content detection has been introduced to the API, to detect inappropriate content within a video. Model changes have been made to Label Detection in order to improve model accuracy with the public beta release.
Please see the API's Home Page for pricing, or contact Google Cloud Platform for additional quota and pricing information.
This article is part of a multi-part series about interesting APIs that were added to our directory during 2017. Cognitive Computing APIs are covered in this segment. The APIs were chosen by our researchers, by popularity according to website traffic, and by mentions on social media.
Google has announced that the Google Cloud Video intelligence API is now in public beta. The company also announced updates to its Cloud Vision API which includes increased label detection model vocabulary, improved text detection model, and the addition of Google Image Search-powered web detection.
As Machine Learning is making inroads into applications across consumer and enterprise domains, Google is pushing updates to its Machine Learning APIs via its advanced models that help analyze and make sense of images and videos.
