UNIVERSAL ACTOR & ACTRESS RECOGNITION
Smart Screen automatically identifies the on-screen actors and actresses, allowing you to see what else they've been in and discover similar content. Unlike previous systems, Smart Screen works in real-time with no video pre-processing - allowing it to work across all content.
How does it work?
When a person pauses their video, we analyze the on-screen faces and match them against our database of millions of celebrity faces in less than a second. We tap into our knowledge graph to display relevant supplemental information that enhances the viewing experience.
