  1. Ability to train face recognition prior to indexing (e.g. with images, similar to FACE API)

    A way to train the face recognition with "known data" (e.g. images of people, like in FACE API).
    This could be something like a corporate image database that can be referenced or the images uploaded.
    Also a way to export the face training data would be nice.

    • Ability to train face model for people not matched by celebrity database

      The API should expose a way to train a custom face model with provided identification for faces that were not matched against the celebrity database. Additionally, there should be a way to correlate new recognized face ID with previous instances of the unknown face (in customer db).

      An example API call would include a faceId (retrieved from breakdown), a name (caller provided identification), and an optional CustomId field (for application tracking, which would subsequently be returned in future breakdowns).

      An additional API call that would be useful would allow a batch training of the model, even before any breakdowns are…

        • Ability to train custom Vocabularies

          We need to have some way to train custom vocabularies or ontologies for a domain. For example, healthcare or legal phrases that may be commonly spoken in videos.

          If you could provide ontology editing capabilities to allow customers to create their own dictionaries or words and phrases and use that to improve the accuracy of speech to text, that would be awesome.

          • Ability to download created highlights videos (as mp4 file)

            Using the VI UX to edit a highlights clip is great, but I'd like the ability to download that file that I create from VI as an mp4 file.

                • Add phrases that Indexer should not censor.

                  There may be some phrases that, in the context of the video, Indexer should not censor with asterisks (*********). For example, a video of a church service should not have the words "Jesus Christ" censored, as it's a perfectly acceptable use for this type of video.

                  It would be great if we could add a list of words or phrases to not censor, or if the censoring could be turned off.

                      • Landmark Recognition For Videos

                        Looking for the ability to recognise landmarks (e.g. Eiffel Towel, Sydney Harbour Bridge, etc..) present in videos that are uploaded and stored within Video Indexer.

                        I believe this capability exists within the Computer Vision API today (9,000 landmarks when I last checked)

                          • Add "Shazam-like" detection of well-known/copyrighted music

                            Recognizing famous voices, sound effects, or even decibel level measurement (ie. how loud crowd noise is) would be great too

                              In the case that a celebrity is not detected by the AI but is in fact in the video, it would be great to allow the tagging to an existing entity.

                                    • Video tagging

                                      Add the ability to manually add custom tags to videos to allow for videos to be categorised or searched by tag.
                                      There is currently no way to manually organise certain videos into categories/tags.

                                      The tag meta-data may not be directly related to the content of the video e.g. you may want to create a tag to present all videos with a particular theme or to indentify all videos 'owned' by a rights holder.

                                          While Logo detection is not supported at the moment, we do recognize brands that are mentioned or appear in OCR (which does cover a category of logos where the brand name appears textually). This list of brands detected is customizable via API and will soon also appear in the UI

                                          Training a face for identification is spported via the API and by using the UI – just assign a name to a face in the insights panel

                                        • Spherical (or 360 or 3D) video analytics for meetings.

                                          I want to use this Video Indexer in a meeting or a conference.
                                          Put a 360 degree camera at the center of the meeting and make a record of the proceeding by uploading the 360video to the Video Indexer.

                                          You can see who spoke what and who is not speaking.

                                          I tried to upload some 360 videos downloaded from youtube to see if it works. However it would be shown as a distorted rectangular video and the people on the edge of the rectangular won't be recognized as a face.
