Today Artificial Intelligence is the most exciting and popular technology buzzing around and is ushering many innovations across literally every industry. Therefore, harnessing AI innovations is fast becoming the top priority for broadcasters, studios and digital organizations alike. One of the major challenge in the MAM industry which deals with petabytes of assets daily, is manually adding metadata to bulk assets ingested to MAM systems. This is where AI can play a vital role when it comes to extracting meaningful digital data with minimal manual interference. AI has revolutionized the MAM industry by automatically labeling meaningful insights of the digital contents which can be retrieved at a lightning speed. eMAM's latest integration with IBM Watson Speech-to-text adds speech transcription capabilities to its features which helps customer to automatically transcribe audio and voice into written texts. This saves a lot of time and makes media workflows more rich and efficient.
