Video Discovery: Reuters Applies AI Technology to 100 Years of Archive Video to Enable Faster Discovery
Reuters today announced that it has used artificial intelligence (AI) technology to enhance its entire video archive – nearly one million clips dating back to 1896 – supported by the Google Digital News Innovation (DNI) Fund.
This new innovation will enable users of Reuters Connect to access time-code accurate speech-to-text transcripts of historic archive videos – from the Wright brothers first flight in 1903 to significant moments of World War II—in 11 languages and with unprecedented levels of data.
It also identifies public figures highlighted in videos, which will allow users to easily navigate to those sections of the video, enabling better and faster access to pictures of some of the most historic events, speeches and moments in history.
