Camio Natural Language Processing Tested

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.

Camio ingests video, automatically determines what objects are, labels those objects and then allows users to search for them with words, like Google but for surveillance video.

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.
