Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Sep 27, 2016

The ex-Googler led team from Camio has advanced its video monitoring offering to include natural language processing.

Here is an example of the type of labeling they claim to do:

We tested Camio's performance connected to an Axis camera and a Nest cam using a Camio Box we bought.
