Dublin and New York-based VISUA now allows API-less use of complete Computer Vision Technology Stack
Leading Computer Vision (Visual-AI) company, VISUA has launched two new ways to integrate Computer Vision into any workflow without the need for developers.
VISUA enjoys a broad customer base comprising leading global companies like Brandwatch, TVEyes and GearLaunch, covering sectors as diverse as brand monitoring, brand protection, cyber security and print-on-demand marketplaces. All these companies make use of VISUA’s API to send media for processing and to control the numerous options available during processing. Finally, the API delivers the results back to them in JSON or XML format. The data can then be integrated into their own data sources to deliver a combined dashboard of data to their clients.
However, in recent years, new sectors have begun to take an interest in how Computer Vision can help them meet their business challenges, often driven by regulatory requirements that demand controls and oversight on the sale of counterfeit and trademark/copyright infringing products, or simply to moderate harmful content, such as hate speech on their platform. Many of these are not ‘high-tech’ companies and have relatively small developer teams focused on development of their core business requirements. As such, they either have no ability to work with an advanced API or simply have no need to integrate the results of processed media into their platform.
Having identified API-less access to its suite of Computer Vision technologies as a key opportunity, VISUA has worked to deliver workable solutions and now announces the launch of two new ways to leverage the power of Computer Vision:
“Our No-Code and Low-Code implementations now put the power of VISUA’s Computer Vision stack in everyone’s hands, no matter their size or development capabilities.”
No-Code Computer Vision
Clients can place media to be processed in an authenticated repository. VISUA’s engine will collect the files and process them. Extracted data is then placed in a VISUA dashboard for the client to interrogate.
Where the client needs to link the findings of a specific image or video back to their platform, they simply add the listing, order or post details into the file’s metadata, which is then converted into a link that points to the relevant page on the client’s site.
This implementation is ideal for clients with lower processing volume requirements and/or have no developer resource to work with the API.
Low-Code Computer Vision
Clients use the API to send media to our engine and provide corresponding listing/order/post details. Once processed, the extracted data is presented to the client via the VISUA dashboard.
This is ideal for clients with higher volume processing needs and/or some resource to use the API, but have no need to integrate the extracted data into their platform.
VISUA, co-founder and CTO, Alessandro Prest explains: “APIs are the key to accessing the best external systems and technologies across the world, but their use is not for everyone. Our No-Code and Low-Code implementations now put the power of VISUA’s Computer Vision stack in everyone’s hands, no matter their size or development capabilities.”
Luca Boschin, VISUA, co-founder and CEO, adds: “We have seen a growing demand for computer vision by marketplaces and content platforms. Perhaps because perceptions and attitudes towards platforms that allow the sale of fake & copyright/trademark infringing goods, and harmful content continues to grow ever more negative. Or that new legislation, like the Digital Services Act in Europe, are forcing platforms and providers of intermediary services to deal with these issues. When it comes to detecting and blocking visual content, the only way to do it effectively is using computer vision. Our No-Code and Low-Code options have been developed to allow any company with a need to harness Computer Vision with a means to do so.”
