Cloudian has announced a partnership with Machine Box, which together are developing solutions that apply machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) to media content. Cloudian brought this interesting news to us in their release, “Cloudian and Machine Box Partner to Deliver Machine-Learning Solutions that Make Content Quickly and Easily Searchable.”

Employing facial recognition and other pattern-detection technologies, the joint solutions add metadata to storage objects, making it easier to search and retrieve content.

Machine Box’s machine learning technology can be trained to recognize any image type. When the technology identifies such an image in content it can then add metadata about it to the storage object. Machine Box models can run anywhere, in the cloud or on-premises behind a firewall, eliminating the need to send private data to a public cloud endpoint for processing.

Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage systems include embedded metadata tags, letting users label data and enabling search via integrated tools such as Elastic Search. The result enables content creators to quickly locate and monetize video assets.
