SEOUL, Mar. 29 (Korea Bizwire) — South Korean fixed-line operator SK Broadband Inc. announced on Thursday that it has released INSIDE, the nation’s first artificial intelligence-based video-on-demand (VOD) service on B tv, an IPTV service provided the company.
INSIDE uses artificial intelligence (AI) technology to analyze and learn numerous videos to deduce information on the characters, background music, locations, and other objects, synchronizing them with B tv’s VOD service to allow users to search for information from each scene.
The service will first start off by providing information on characters. Information on music, location, and other objects will soon follow through sequential updates.
Users don’t have to rewind or fast forward the video to look for their favorite characters. All they have to do is simply search for the characters, and the service will automatically locate the scenes.
The service will also provide features that will allow users to look for their favorite scenes, such as kiss scenes by favorite actors.
The AI technology has been developed jointly by SK Broadband, SK Telecom Corporate R&D Center and SK Telecom’s AI business unit.
