According to a recent press release, “Veritone Inc., the creator of the world’s first operating system for artificial intelligence, aiWARE™, today announced the launch of Objectbox, aiWARE’s newest cognitive engine in the Veritone Machine Box suite. Objectbox is state-of-the-art machine learning technology that developers can use to train their own custom object detection engines. It is a unique tool in the market, accessible to those without data science expertise, combining advanced object detection capabilities with a user-friendly interface that allows users to get immediate feedback on detection efficacy. Objectbox has applications across all industries utilizing video and image content. It can be deployed with aiWARE in the cloud or hybrid environments without the need to send data outside an organization’s firewall.”
The release goes on, “Object detection is a rapidly growing part of the computer vision industry, which is projected to grow to $48.6 billion by 2022. Objectbox can quickly detect selected objects with precision, saving users valuable time and resources. In the media and entertainment industry, for example, a broadcaster using Objectbox within aiWARE can inform its advertising clients when their logo appeared during a sporting event broadcast, how long it appeared on screen and how big the logo was, and can provide audience analytics — valuable information that helps the broadcaster demonstrate their client’s ad spend ROI. Unlike many cognitive engines, Objectbox can run locally, avoiding the need to publish the user’s content to the cloud, which helps to address many privacy or legal concerns. This is of particular importance for government, legal and law enforcement users relying on the technology to aid efforts like eDiscovery, surveillance and suspect identification.”
