Discover how you can use Machine Learning to extract metadata from images and videos for use with search and retrieval.  Use speech to text to create subtitles, closed captions, and foreign language translations to assist with regionalization and transcriptions.  Automate clip creation based on scene events and image recognition.  AWS will be using live demos of how our Elemental Media Services and Cognitive Machine Learning services can be applied today.
