Digitally Transforming GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums)

Some problems are so complex today that they can only be solved using AI. This certainly applies to what many consider to be the last frontier in Search technology - Audio Visual Media.

By using a combination of AIs (like speech and face recognition), Videospace unlocks hundreds and thousands of hours of knowledge within your media libraries by making them accessible and discoverable.

With the World's First Translated Video Search, we can further unleash the full potential of your media library by making them searchable in other languages! Extending its assessibility and discoverability!

Besides running Videospace on a world-class video platform (the same platform used by the 2012 and 2016 Olympics), we are using a combination of following advanced technologies:

  • Speech Recognition (over 100 languages)

  • Translation (over 60 languages)

  • Face Recognition

  • Video OCR (up to 26 languages)

  • Natural Language Processing (over 20 languages)

  • Video Search Engine - index and search video in time-series

  • World’s First Translated Search Engine – searches over 6,000 different language pairs

ANNOUNCEMENT: Global Launch of AIspace – The Next Generation of A.I. Storage

AIspace_banner_large.png

Singapore, 19 April 2019: - Babbobox officially announces the global launch of AIspace (pronounced as "i"space) – The Next Generation of A.I. Storage in Singapore.

Enterprises know the need for digital transformation, they also know that Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) will play a big role in that transformation. However, many perceive A.I. to be out of reach because they think it is either too costly or they have little knowledge about its benefits to them. This is about to change.

AIspace’s Mission is “To make A.I. accessible to all enterprises”

In AIspace, we are infusing A.I. into the something all enterprises need - Storage. By applying A.I. to digital assets (documents, images, audio and video) that already exist within your organization. For the first time ever, enterprises will be able to index and search inside all your documents, images, audio and video in a single platform using the World's First Unified Search Engine

Beyond Search, you can now apply A.I. to documents and images for analysis. This will open up a whole world of future possibilities, especially in Big Data. 

AIspace is simply what enterprise storage should really be - Intelligent!

Babbobox is leveraging the co-selling capabilities of Microsoft to fuel growth, innovation and expansion plans globally.

The Singapore-based Video Search Engine expert is tapping on the tech giant’s internal channel changes in the form of One Commercial Partner (OCP) to transform into an international player.

“Babbobox’s relationship with Microsoft did not happen overnight, we believe that it is a strong and one that can stand the test of time,” said Alex Chan, Babbobox CEO.

“We have received tremendous support from numerous Microsoft’s local and international teams, industry specialists, product engineering and product business group teams, working with them on a wide range of joint initiatives locally and around the world.”

Specific to co-selling, “This partnership allows us to continue to capitalise on innovations from Microsoft before they are available in the market. We have experienced significant benefits from greater access to innovation and expertise through Microsoft.” Alex added.

As Babbobox partnership with Microsoft deepens, we are looking to continue to expand geographically beyond our offices in Singapore and Malaysia. With this program, we will also look to enlist the support of Microsoft’s network of partners, distributors and resellers in various verticals globally. 

“We have an ambitious roadmap globally, innovating A.I. infused products that will keep Babbobox on the cutting edge of modern technological trends. We have come a long way, but this is only the start of our global journey” Alex said.

Video Big Data Whitepaper (FREE download)

video big data videospace

The term "Video Big Data" is rarely heard of. The reasons are pretty simple: 

  1. It's difficult to extract data from videos
  2. It's difficult make sense of unstructured video data

Therefore, it is not an understatement to say that video is the most difficult medium to search and extract intelligence from. However, given the amount of videos are that generated daily in the public domain (e.g. YouTube) and private domain (e.g. broadcasters, CCTV, education, etc.), it is also not an understatement to say that video is the King of Content. 

The objective of Big Data is to gain Business Intelligence. Video Big Data is no different. The obvious difference is the source and the type of data that can be extracted out from videos.

This Video Big Data Whitepaper aims to explain how we can extract value and intelligence from videos with a 3 step approach:

  1. Extract video data 
  2. Transform unstructured video data
  3. Analyse to data into intelligence 

With this whitepaper, we hope to share some of our knowledge and experiences working with Video Big Data. From our calculations, we estimate that Video Big Data will dwarf Big Data as we know it. Thus, the importance of this whitepaper. We hope you enjoy and benefit from it!

Yours sincerely,

Video Big Data (Part I) - An Introduction

videospace-video-big-data.jpg

Fact: YouTube sees more than 300 hours of videos uploaded every minute. That's 18,000 years worth of videos in a year. And that's just YouTube ONLY! If we add all other videos in the public domain, we wouldn't even know where to start with the numbers. 

However, the even bigger numbers are actually hidden in the private domain from sources like broadcasters, media companies, CCTVs, GoPros, bodycams, smart devices, etc. We are recording videos at an unprecedented pace and scale. 

There is one word to describe this - BIG!

Which brings us to Video Big Data. Or should I say the lack of it. Even the term "Video Big Data" is rarely heard of. The reason is pretty simple - this stems from the inability to extract video data and making sense of it. But there is so much information embedded inside videos that is waiting to be discovered, it's an absolute goldmine! 

So the real question is... how can we extract value from videos?

However, the problem with video is that it is the most difficult medium to work with. There are a few reasons why: 

  • There are so many elements inside a video (speech, text, faces, objects, etc)
  • It is not static.
  • It is very difficult to extract the various elements of video data. 
  • Each video element requires a different data extraction technique.
  • It is very difficult to make sense of video data because of its unstructured nature.
  • It's expensive to extract data at scale

These problems are real and is preventing the arrival of Age of Video Big Data. But there is hope yet. With substantial use of Artificial Intelligence, VideoSpace is beginning to crack this enigma. 

In the next segment of this "Video Big Data" Series, we will examine how we can tackle these problems and extract value from videos. 

Thank you Birmingham... Hello Washington!

Finally, 2 intensive days of MS Tech Summit in Birmingham... done and dusted. Absolutely the right decision to come to UK to do this. Massive event! Exactly the right platform to showcase our Video Search technologies.

Caught up with Scott Guthrie. Held so many in-depth discussion with so many UK enterprises, universities, government agencies, etc. If we have our way, our stuff might even end up in Scotland Yard! So let's see... 

Good-bye Birmingham... Next stop, Trump-capital Washington in March! I'm excited already...
