Artificial Intelligence is the buzz word in the tech industry presently. As part of the company’s ongoing push to make AI accessible, Google has now released its Cloud Video Intelligence API to the world by making it available in public beta.

Cloud Video Intelligence API uses powerful deep learning models, built using frameworks like TensorFlow and applied on large-scale media platforms like Youtube. The API is the first of its kind, enabling developers to easily search and discover video content by providing information about entities inside the video content.


The Video Intelligence API is designed to let users upload a video and get information back on what is inside it, using a system called label detection. Notably, this also adds support for detecting pornographic content, making it possible to use the service to spot videos that would be inappropriate to share with an audience that isn’t looking for that sort of content. The label detection model which names objects inside an image now supports more than 10000 entities so that it can spot the difference between a breakfast ‘cereal’ and just breakfast.

Google has also announced the pricing for this service. Label and adult content detection are free for the first 1000 minutes of video uploaded and costs 10 cents per minute for the next 9000 minutes. Shot detection which finds scene change within a video is also free for first 1000 minutes and then costs 5 cents for next 9000 minutes. Companies that need additional time should contact Google for additional pricing information.
