Project Partners Will Train System to Automate Video Content Categorization

In the age of misinformation and fake news, demand for credible video content is growing. Enter Vubble, a women-led next-generation digital media company that uses artificial intelligence to provide customized and curated video content from reputable sources. Co-founders Tessa Sproule and Katie MacGuire are working with Professor Vida Movahedi from Seneca’s School of Information and Communications Technology, to design a system that automatically categorizes and labels video content. According to Prof. Movahedi, video curation is increasingly important, particularly for younger audiences. “In addition to finding interesting content more easily, this generation needs to watch more quality videos,” she says. FedDev Ontario supports SOSCIP projects, which bring together industrial partners and academic researchers.
