We make use of machine learning in the TV and media space to allow customers to upgrade their content. Today’s TV content metadata, this is not limited to linear TV, make it hard to build UX that works equally well across any content – whether that is high-profile content from Hollywood with all the marketing budget required to allow a super rich content UX or low-profile content from Germany about local fruit farmers with pretty much no budget for eye-catching trailers, images, detailed cast & crew information or the necessary tagging to allow the content to be discovered by its audience.

Machine Learning to the rescue! Our services can be used in three different modes: A) automated mode without human intervention, B) draft mode with humans using the work done by machines as a quick draft and C) creative mode where creative people use the insights identified by machines to jump start their work and be in charge of the creative output.. .
