Digital asset managers spend an unbelievable amount of time and energy on metadata application. The work is tedious and no one that has never taken an entire day to load photos into a digital asset management (DAM) system would ever fully understand just how much. CMS Wire brought this interesting information to us in their article, “Could Artificial Intelligence Pull DAM Into the Mainstream?

You would think that in this day of technology there would be an easier way; one that is less reliant on human resources.

There have been a growing number of applications making use of machine learning to help perform specific tasks. Imagine if your DAM system learned how to tag and classify digital files or recognized your face for attribution in a digital photograph. In reality, every mechanical task can be improved through artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. It just takes imagination, energy and intelligence to make it happen.
