Automated image recognition capabilities leveraging Google Cloud Vision were recently released by NetX, bringing new efficiency to digital asset management (DAM) workflows. YAHOO! Finance brought this interesting news to our attention in their article, “NetX Digital Asset Management Announces Image Recognition AI via Google Vision.”

NetX can automatically understand the content of an image and associate relevant keywords and metadata. The platform provides recognition of labels, objects and concepts, along with landmarks, logos, and even facial expressions.

By leveraging the artificial intelligence (AI) engine of Google, concepts and cultural objects can be detected in an image.

This new tool is a shift of focus for digital asset managers and end users alike, as tags from powerful machine learning models will be automatically generated.

DAM systems are no longer viewed as simple systems for basic asset handling and archiving. In workflow management, they serve a very functional task.
