NetX Digital Asset Management Announces Image Recognition AI via Google Vision

Image Recognition within NetX Now Automates the Application of Keyword Metadata

PORTLAND, Ore.--()--NetX announces automated image recognition capabilities leveraging Google Cloud Vision. This development brings new efficiencies to digital asset management workflows, accelerating the tagging and subsequent findability of digital assets.

NetX can now automatically understand the content of an image and associate relevant keywords and metadata. The platform provides recognition of labels, objects and concepts, along with landmarks, logos, and even facial expressions. This new tool enables a shift of focus for digital asset managers and end users alike, as tags from powerful machine learning models will be automatically generated.

“We have always prioritized metadata management and search,” said NetX President Jason Wehling, “and we feel that this Google Vision initiative will revolutionize the experience of managing, searching and finding digital assets.”

By leveraging the AI engine of Google, a concept such as “extreme sport” can be detected in an image of a kayaker, or a cultural object like “the Eiffel Tower” in a picture of Paris. Google Vision offers image recognition in the following areas:

  • Label Detection — Detect broad sets of categories within an image, ranging from modes of transportation to animals.
  • Logo Detection — Detect popular brand product logos within an image.
  • Landmark Detection — Detect popular natural and man-made structures within an image.
  • Face Detection — Detect multiple faces within an image, along with the associated key facial attributes like emotional state.

“NetX has great metadata editing tools, such as the Grid Editor and Quick Edit panel, and this integration will bring tagging efficiencies to a new level,” said Kevin Peoples, VP Product & Growth. “We look forward to our clients discovering the benefits of image recognition.”
