Finnish AI startup Valossa powers Orange in Silicon Valley
The development centre of the global telecommunications operator Orange, Orange Silicon Valley (OSV), starts co-operation with Finnish artificial intelligence (AI) startup Valossa.
Orange, which is one of the world’s leading telecommunications operators, will be using Valossa’s Val.ai platform for identifying objects and people in real-time across more than 25 simultaneous HD video streams.
Val.ai platform is based on years of research at the computer vision and AI labs of the University of Oulu in Finland. The platform is capable of analysing movies and streaming videos in real-time and identifying thousands of concepts, like places, objects and unique topics, from any video stream.
US-based company Echo Streams Innovative Solutions is partnering with Valossa within the co-operation with Orange Silicon Valley:
“We are excited to collaborate with Valossa and OSV to bring High Performance Server and Storage platforms, which normally are only available in Supercomputing Data Centers, to the Media and Entertainment industry,” says Andy Lee, Echo Streams’ director of Product Marketing. “By harnessing HPC computing power and Valossa AI, this demonstration is truly a breakthrough implementation of the Artificial Intelligence concept in real-world applications such as the Media and Broadcasting industry.”
