For Affine Systems, Video Search Is a Start March 19, 2009

Affine Systems is a startup whose approach to video search isn’t just about the results, it’s also about what’s after that. The company wants you to find what you are looking for, but then bucket those results in a way that will lead you to discover and watch more videos. […]

Similar to VideoSurf, Affine uses facial and object recognition to find what you are looking for. When you search for George Clooney, you get a number of videos featuring the movie star, but then Affine goes one step further to break down and bucket other results based on what it thinks you might be interested in from that search. So Affine can recognize Clooney and Matt Lauer’s face and know that it’s an interview they did and point you to that. Or it can recognize a CNN logo on-screen for any news clips featuring Clooney on that news network.
