Genre classification is the process of grouping objects together based on defined similarities such as subject, format, style or purpose. Digital Information World brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “Researchers Use AI to Automate Video Game Genre Classification.”

It is the sort of thing that any platform or marketplace that is trying to show users any kind of content would need to work on because it increases findability, much like a taxonomy.

In the world of gaming, genre classification is important. A team of researchers from Western Kentucky University have created an artificial intelligence (AI) model that would be able to accurately analyze video games and sort them based on genre. This AI uses a variety of different data sets, including the cover of the game, the title, any description that it may have been given as well as genre classifications that already exist for the game.

Any line of business or retailer understands the need of classification for stock management and findability. Professionals should look for an experienced builder of solid standards-based taxonomies to associate content for appropriate indexing against a solid custom taxonomy. Access Innovations can provide solutions that are ANSI-compliant.
