IBM  is launching IBM Watson Media, a suite of AI-powered solutions that analyze images, video, language, sentiment and tone. The US Open tennis championship will use one of the first solutions available through IBM Watson Media called Cognitive Highlights, says the company.

Developed at IBM Research with IBM iX, Cognitive Highlights can identify the match’s most important moments by analyzing the statistical tennis data, sounds from the crowd and the reactions of a player using both action and facial expression recognition. The system will then rank the shots from seven US Open courts and auto-curate the highlights.

IBM Watson Media solutions can help with content search and discovery, recommendation uplift, intelligent closed captioning based on speech-to-text, and spotlighting or identification of content – such as violence or adult language, among other things.
