Google, at its Cloud Next conference in San Francisco, unveiled a new technology where it will use machine learning to identify objects in videos. This essentially means that users will now be able to search for videos by typing in specific situations. In a way, this new technology is similar to the image search using recognition and processing tools, the only difference being this time it is not just for static images. Google has always been proud of its work in artificial intelligence and that can be seen in whatever it produces.
