Reuters video archive gets speed and accuracy boost with AI tech

The Reuters Video Archive which covers over a century of news footage is now using artificial intelligence (AI) technology to enhance customer search results over nearly one million clips. The new tech has been supported by the Google Digital News Innovation (DNI) Fund.

AI will enable users to access time-code accurate speech-to-text transcripts of historic archive videos – from the Wright brothers first flight in 1903 to significant moments of World War II—in 11 languages and with unprecedented levels of data.

The system also identifies public figures highlighted in videos, which will allow users to easily navigate to those sections of the video, enabling better and faster access to pictures of some of the most historic events, speeches and moments in history.
