Latin America. Masstech takes advantage of the advantages offered by artificial intelligence for the introduction of metadata in video content. This is one of the company's main offers, explained Frank Lima, the company's director of sales for Latin America.
"The product that is awakening more interest from the public is MassStore and Disaster Recovery, implementation of metadata enriched through artificial intelligence. Even for customers who already have our solution is an exceptional license to access the artificial intelligences of Google, Amazon, IBM Watson and therefore enrich the metadata automatically, "he said during his stay in Mexico.
And detailed: "Mainly for historical archives, because many of the years 50, 60, 70, 80 that in synthesis were digitized, but there is no information, just the name of the file. The artificial intelligence system can, automatically, listen to the voice and create text. The idea is to identify the places, faces, but in any case recognize the voice, create a text and now that text is metadata that can be searched. For example, if you want to find some information about the president of Mexico in the 70 years, maybe there is a tape, but you do not know where it is. Simply type in the keywords and indicate all the assets where there is a match for that word. "
Lima stated that it would be impossible to have a human staff ingesting this type of information for metadata. "To be realistic, companies can not have people to watch thousands and thousands of hours of old videos; It is almost impossible for time and it is very expensive. They are decades of video that has to be seen in real time. "
The executive mentioned that the application of Masstech has a wide margin of accuracy. "This solution, the voice recognition part in English, is on average effective 90 to 95%, and I imagine that in Spanish it is more or less the same. It depends a lot on noise, for example; there are recordings that have noise from the tape or that there is in the environment. In general enough information is extracted to have metadata, for example, it could be that the name of the president was mentioned four times and we managed to identify three or one and that is enough, "he said.
