Artificial Intelligence. The phrase is everywhere these days. AI has become a catch-all for increasingly interactive and intuitive platforms in fields across the spectrum; from Hollywood to Silicon Valley and from Wall Street to Washington, DC.
For years, decades in fact, political opposition research was done manually – literally by hand. Dozens of people would sit in very small rooms combing through hard-copy newspapers and magazines for that one tidbit of information that a campaign needed.
While the Internet made information more readily accessible, it also increased the amount of data available to the nth degree. Instead of just having a handful of publications to read, there were suddenly an endless number of newspapers, broadcast outlets and blogs to track for that elusive puzzle piece.
Today we’ve added tracker videos, Facebook Live, Twitter and too many other media to count to the sources of information researchers are asked to comb through every day. Luckily, Veritone Politics has a solution to many researchers’ major problem: how to find what you need, when you need it.
Utilizing AI, the Veritone Platform allows you to upload your own data: video or audio files, and use our multi-dimensional search system to look for exactly that quote, phrase, speech or speaker you’re looking for – all with just a few keystrokes. Rather than having a staff member spend 30 minutes looking for a 15 second quote in a YouTube video, powerful AI engines like A/V fingerprinting and face recognition allow you to organize, catalog and search that same video within seconds.
In politics, speed often wins the battle. The days of spending precious hours of staff time looking for one tidbit of information are over. Veritone Politics is ready to help you stay ahead of your data and ahead of your competition.
