Smart idea for the api, im confused on how it actually works though. Is it an AI? Does it look for malicous words in the audio?Does the AI only give results for videos already in the database? Also are you scared the API wont give accurate results one day and clients will get mad? Anyway smart idea.

Hey Eduard,

Thank you for your reply. The API doesn't rely to much on AI/ML at the moment, although we are exploring a couple of avenues in that direction which is exciting.

The API is driven from a lot of intelligent data from a diverse set of sources if you google a film with parents guides there is a range of different websites that effectively provides reviews for movies. The benefit is the data has been written for the purpose to help people and is keyword rich and enables us to detect if an issue is implicit rather then explicit. The problem with many of these services is that each of them has their own biases, long story short we have aggregated some of the sources, done a lot of data cleaning, and applied keyword analysis. We consume a number of other sources to further strengthen our dataset.

It would be trivial to apply these techniques to film, TV show scripts, and possibly audio.

Thanks!
