Author: Brian Karas, Published on Jul 18, 2017

Microsoft has released one of the most amazing video analytics marketing videos ever. In it, they detect oil spills, track individual people giving them specific directions to avoid oil spills, send alerts if patients have engaged in too much activity, tell nurses the exact location of the nearest free wheelchair, answer questions on where the nearest hot saw is and more. Watch the video below:

Is Microsoft going to disrupt video analytics? IPVM spoke with Milan Gada, Microsoft's program manager for their video AI cloud services to learn what the company is working on and what they are releasing for video analytics.

In this report we analyze the potential for Microsoft to become a major player in video analytics.
