- [Instructor] Now let's imagine for a second that you went on an amazing vacation through the rainforest or some tropical jungle. Or maybe it was just your backyard. In any case, you've come out with a ton of video footage. Now it turns out that your friends are really interested in seeing just a fraction of the footage because they don't take your artistic side as seriously as you do. So maybe you want to point out the good stuff. You just happen to remember that you had some great shots with a wild monkey. But my goodness, it's going to take forever for you to look through the footage and find those shots, or maybe not. It turns out that Google can help you with something called Google Cloud Video Intelligence. It's built on powerful computer vision models that power several Google services, and it can help you figure out especially where that monkey or any other animal for that matter is in your footage. Hi, I'm Jonathan Fernandes, and in this course I'll show you how to use Python to make calls to video intelligence API. You can also use C Sharp, Go, Java, Node.js, PHP, or Ruby, but let's just dip our toes into this with Python. That being said, you might want to brush up on Python a bit before launching this course if you haven't touched it in a while. Now most of what we'll cover is pretty straightforward. So even if you're familiar with another programming language you should be able to follow along. Some of the services I'll delve into are label detection and transcribing videos, amongst others. I really enjoy this stuff and want to make it accessible for those who want to get into it as well. So let's get started.
