Title

SMARTVID.IO

Abstract

The collection, organization, and retrieval of industrial media is a pervasive challenge that is especially glaring for companies in the AEC industry. Construction projects often generate large volumes of pictures & videos from the field for tracking progress and communicating between engineers, contractors, and subcontractors. It is not uncommon for field personnel to capture hundreds of photos per week on any given jobsite.

Smartvid.io is a cloud-based software solution designed for the specific needs of industrial media. The application’s internal deep-learning engines, collectively nicknamed VINNIE (for ‘Very Intelligent Neural Network for Insight and Evaluation’), use speech and image recognition to analyze and organize pictures & videos.

Smartvid.io tames the challenge of effective enterprise-wide media management, automates otherwise tedious manual processes, and provides an “insurance policy” by enabling easy retrieval of critical photo and videos. Clients who have implemented Smartvid.io have achieved a 60% improvement in field documentation and image retrieval processes. And getting started is easy, especially for customers using Smartvid.io’s direct integrations which can be connected within 90 seconds, immediately improving media access for both project teams as well as operations, marketing, and safety professionals.
