Auto tagger in Imatch 2020
« on: February 25, 2020, 08:20:17 PM »
Maybe you won`t tell us Mario, but I am just curious: This is maybe a stupid question, but will this produce only english Keywords or is it possible to set it up to produce in other languages?

This depends on the AI service you subscribe to.
Some manage only keywords in english, some offer a range of additional languages.

But you can always use the mapping feature in AutoTagger to map the english keywords into one (or more) other languages.

Like Norwegian?;)
I know there are Norwegian lightroom keyword lists that are possible to import to Imatch. Could these lists be used together With the Auto tagger? This would be very good!

AutoTagger uses AI-based keywording provided by 3rd parties like Capterra, Google, imagga and Microsoft.
You cannot "import" keywords into these services. Their AI keyword models are huge and run in dedicated data centers.

The AutoTagger can lookup keywords delivered by the service in your thesaurus, e.g., to map the flat keywords delivered by the service into hierarchical keywords (very useful, and pretty much unique).
This could also be used to first map the english keywords into Norwegian keywords and then map these into your thesaurus, if needed.

As I said, if and which languages are supported depends on the service you subscribe to.
I provide the AutoTagger app and the integration in IMatch. The AI power comes from external companies who specialize in this. Similar to the Map Panel in IMatch, or the reverse geo-coding.

Thank you Mario!

I hope you make a lot of Learning videos for Imatch 2020:) Very good when you demonstrate how features work! I know that Imatch is very well explained in the documentation, but videos also makes it easier to learn:)

I would love to make more training videos. Unfortunately, they are very time-consuming to create and there is never enough time for everything.
Beta Testers were able to quickly use the new features using the IMatch help, so there should be no problem.

Ps:

Clarifai and imagga provide keywords in multiple languages (including 'no').

Google is english only.

Microsoft has english, chinese and japanese only at this time.
They recommend to combine image analysis with their (cost-based) machine translation.
Which I did not implement for now.
The built-in mapping in AutoTagger can do this as well, and for free.
