Talk Abstract: Justin Higdon - Principal Solutions Architect at Elastic & Dane Engquist - Sr. Solutions Architect at Elastic

Modern organizations, from large enterprises to school districts, share a lot of pertinent and timely information through video content (e.g., Town Halls, Tutorials, Webinars, Board Meetings). Typically such content addresses a wide range of topics within a given video, with each topic of interest only to a specific subset of the audience. Without a good intra-video search option, viewers are forced to consume such content linearly. At best, this potentially wastes a viewer's valuable time; at worst, it creates enough of a barrier to consumption that pertinent information (which could be a catalyst to further productivity) goes unwatched.

Imagine automatically summarizing video content using a public Speech-To-Text (STT) engine and LLM (e.g., as offered by OpenAI), and then offer search on top of the summarized output. Further, and arguably more importantly, speakers in informative video are generally:

  • Subject matter experts
  • Well-spoken
  • Already producing expertly-curated summarized content

Join us to learn how Elastic can turn this into reality transforming underutilized media assets into valuable resources.
