Being able to recognize content and objects and to understand a spoken language has set us apart from computer capabilities since the dawn of computers. Although we can't crunch numbers in the same speed as a computer, we are aware of the story in the film, we can appreciate and describe contents of the media files, we can understand languages, and we recognize actors. All these skills are examples of cognitive abilities - from the word "recognize".
Wouldn't it be great if we could combine these cognitive abilities with the nearly unlimited performance in today's computing environments? Well, it's already happening. With the introduction of machine learning software, it is now possible to train algorithms to recognize media contents the same way as we humans do.
The time has come when we need to start to challenge our perception of what computers can or cannot do. With the development of cognitive machine learning algorithms, CTO's, Content Owners, and technical strategists now have an entirely new set of tools to build the next-generation digital media supply chain.
With the introduction of Vidinet Cognitive Services, Vidispine API and Vidinet become the perfect platform for the job.
