AI Can See Clearly Now: Innovative Integration of Images

Main Level, Woodrow Wilson BCD

Photos, drawings, and other images historically have been viewed as a challenge for efficient searching, organization and review. And often valuable resources and time are spent on simply filtering out personal photos, signature blocks and logos from substantive, business-related images. Now images now can be processed by AI-driven technology, their contents tagged, and the tags searched. Learn how you can turn the droves of image files into the gold of meaningful content.
