The video recognition API is reaching a new level of performance, as we will upgrade several new features. By signing up for the beta, you can test the improved API free of charge: val.ai/apply.
1. Immense improvements in visual recognition
The video AI can soon detect a video’s visual context, such as objects, places, styles and activities, with much higher confidence and detail than before. The visual detection vocabulary has been multiplied, which enables more detailed descriptions of what appears in the video.
2. Video categorization – IAB taxonomy
The new categorization feature is a great way to describe and classify your video inventory. Your content will be categorized according to the standardized IAB taxonomy. This taxonomy defines 24 contextual content categories that help you to serve the right content and ads to the right people.
3. Metadata format gets a major upgrade
The metadata JSON output format in the Beta Core API will be greatly improved. The upgrade includes a cleaner, unified and extensible logic for expressing concept detections, groupings of concept detections, and time-based segmentations of the content.
