According to a recent press release, “Box, Inc., a leader in cloud content management, today announced that it is bringing advanced image recognition capabilities to enterprise content through an integration with Google Cloud Vision. Available today in private beta, the integration represents one of Box’s first use cases of advanced machine learning to help enterprises improve workflows and drive efficiencies through more accurate discovery and deeper insights into unstructured content stored in Box. ‘Organizations today have no way to extract insights from the massive amounts of unstructured data that are essential to their business, missing a huge opportunity to drive innovation, efficiency, and cost savings,’ said Aaron Levie, cofounder and CEO, Box. ‘By combining the machine learning capabilities of Google Cloud with the critical data businesses manage and secure in Box, we are enabling our customers – for the first time – to unlock tremendous new value from their content, digitize manual workflows, and accelerate business processes’.”
The release goes on, “Images are the second fastest growing type of business content in Box, but their value has remained largely untapped. Leveraging Google Cloud Vision’s machine learning capabilities, Box customers can surface insights from images by detecting individual objects and concepts, capture text through optical character recognition (OCR), automatically add keyword labels to images for faster search & filtering, and easily build metadata on image catalogs to automate business processes and speed up workflows across every industry.”
