01
SEARCH IN ARCHIVE

Noscos allows searching for photos and videos of exact persons in internal archives. As a result you can find your previously added media files really quickly, allowing you to reuse the most appropriate content for your next articles.

02
SEARCH IN VIDEOS

Noscos tags the videos and persons in them. So often videos are either untagged or it's only known, that the exact person appears in the video, but you have no idea in which minutes and seconds. Noscos provides an automatic tool which will not only find the searched peoplein videos, but also show the exact moments of appearance on the timeline.

03
SEARCH CONECTIONS

Noscos collects connections between people and converts them in a way understandable for humans. You can see the most popular people your searched person has been seen together with as well as you can seek for multiple persons and find out if you have seen them both together in a single photo and video. Articles about exact people, investigating journalism, business news - this will improve the quality for any type of article.

04
SEARCH BY PHOTOS

Noscos allows searching by photo for the exact person. Even if you haven't recognized the exact person before, you may be able to find the same person in different photos allowing you to improve recognition process of the person and noticing additional useful connections.

05
FOLLOW CERTAIN PEOPLE

Noscos allows being the first to notice the appearance of a certain person in your media library. If someone adds a photo or a video of a person you are interested in, you will get an immediate notification about that, allowing you to decide, whether you can use the information in your next articles.

06
RECOGNISE UNKNOWN PERSONS

Noscos implements innovative and effective collective learning mechanism. If we already know some certain person that you don't know, we help you to recognize him/her. In such a way you don't have to collect manually a lot of images to train your recognition algorithm - instead people, especially popular ones, get recognized already after the first picture added to the system.

It is my experience from both news media and magazines that many editorial workers are struggling to make use of valuable archive photos,because they simply get lost.

About
“noscos” is face recognition software that helps journalists finding exact people and relations between them in photos and videos.
Journalists we have worked together for many years regularly complained about one and the same thing. They were not able to effectively find content in their media archives. They could not effectively search in videos, they were not able to reuse their images and they couldn't see connections between people. They couldn't share their knowledge effectively.

We understood - we have great knowledge and skills how to finally solve their media finding and understanding problems. We knew that we were good at artificial intelligence. We noticed the problem. We knew how to solve it. We built the tool. We called it “noscos”. Now they can!
THE PROJECT WITH IT’S INITIAL NAME “EAGLE EYE” has been funded by Digital News Initiative - A collaboration between Google and news publishers in Europe. WE ARE WORKING CLOSELY TOGETHER WITH ADEVO GROUP TO MAKE NOSCOS AS EXCELLENT AS POSSIBLE.
