Search giant Google recently showed off its Cloud Video Intelligent A.P.I., software that uses machine learning to identify the nouns and verbs that appear in a video. The deep-learning tool, which parses videos on Google Cloud Storage to track the searched objects or actions, is currently available in a private beta with chances that it may soon be at your disposal.

The software looks for “entities” like nouns in a video and notifies on finding a match, writes Engadget. Fei-Fei Li, chief scientist of artificial intelligence and machine learning at Google Cloud describes the new feature as an attempt to “shine light on the dark matter of the digital universe.”

Until now the computers have lacked the ability to spot specified objects in videos without manual tagging but the new software attempts to address that limitation, notes The Verge.  The whiz-bang features like this one can catapult Google to a strong position against the likes of Amazon and Microsoft, two companies that are clearly ahead of the search giant in technology race.
