The Internet Archive creates face-o-matic, powered by Matroid

Posted on July 15th, 2017 by Reza

Today the Internet Archive announced "Face-o-matic", to identify prominent public figures in TV channels aired across the world. Head over to The Internet Archive blog to read more of their post:

"Working with Matroid, a California-based start up specializing in identifying people and objects in images and video, the Internet Archive’s TV News Archive today releases Face-O-Matic, an experimental public service that alerts users via a Slack app whenever the faces of President Donald Trump and congressional leaders appear on major TV news cable channels: CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, and the BBC. The alerts include hyperlinks to the actual TV news footage on the TV News Archive website, where the viewer can see the appearances in context of the entire broadcast, what comes before and what after."
