Blackbird users can use AI to recognise languages, faces, objects and logos from audio and video files.
Forbidden Technologies, the developer of the Blackbird cloud video platform, has struck a technology alliance with artificial intelligence company Veritone.
Under the alliance, Forbidden will integrate its Blackbird codec and cloud video platform with Veritone aiWARE, an operating system for AI.
Veritone employs AI to automate the generation of metadata, and its aiWARE system will give Blackbird users the ability to recognise languages, faces, objects and logos from audio and video files.
Veritone says the system enables operational teams to focus on monetising their content without the need for labour intensive manual data entry.
Forbidden CEO, Ian McDonough said: “The capabilities of AI platforms are evolving rapidly, and multiple additional revenue streams are unlocked for our customers by the huge wealth of data they can expose.”
“Veritone provides a trusted operating system for AI that empowers innovative companies, like Forbidden Technologies, to deliver actionable insights from previously unstructured data sources,” said Andy Brinck, Vice President, Worldwide Channels at Veritone.
