Building a Timeline of your Video: Automatically Identify Objects, Sequence Times, and Integrate with Timeline.js

When we implemented InceptionNet, a microservice to detect and label objects (features) in photos, we knew it would be helpful. Then, we built out VideoMetadataExtraction, a video pipeline which allows you to run feature-detection algorithms (and others) on an entire video. This allowed for some really powerful activities — like automatically scanning through home security footage to find all the cars of a specific make & model, or stripping out all the nudity-containing scenes of a movie to make a G-rated version.

Today, we’ll go further by showing you how to visualize all the features in your video, thanks to the VideoTagSequencer and Timeline.js, a beautiful JavaScript library for displaying timelines on the web.

If you want to skip directly to the demo, please do. but come on back for a full breakdown of the integration pipeline and code samples! Read More…

Video Metadata Extraction: See it in Action!

Add emotion detection to your livestreaming service.  Find all the faces in your security tapes. Detect the make and model of every car that passes your shop.  Flag nudity in users’ uploaded videos.

These are just a few of the cool things you can do with our powerful Video Metadata Extraction microservice, which allows you to analyze an entire video with our many image data-extraction algorithms.  But don’t simpy take our word for it — if you want to see how powerful this tool is, take a peek at our live demo:

See our Video Transform in Action

Recently, we introduced you to Video Transform, a meta-algorithm which can take any of our image transformations — such as Colorization, Saliency, Style Transfer, or Resolution Enhancement — and apply it to a video instead!
…but if picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth 24-30,000 words per second (sorry, bad videography humor there). So instead of just telling you about this cool feature, we’d like to show you, with a brand new Video Toolbox demonstration!

Combine Cloud Algorithms to Build a Feature-Rich Website Mapper & Summarizer

website mapper & summarizerOnce upon a time, site mappers were arcane scripts which could take hours or days to examine a single website.  But, thanks to scalable & interoperable cloud algorithms, it now takes only minutes… and includes a multitude of handy features powered by machine learning: auto-tagging, summarization, page-ranking, and more!

You may have already seen our Python tutorials for building a simple web-scraper or extracting structured data from a webpage, but today we’ll highlight a demo built entirely in JavaScript which combines five cloud-hosted microservices into a single useful tool:

All of this takes just a few simple lines of simple Javascript Code, and zero additional infrastructure.  We invite you to try out the sitemapper demo and, if you like what you see, try building your own!

Map, summarize, and tag any website
