We recently (15th May 2019) presented a Meetup talk regarding a product — Verity — for brand safety that utilizes both computer vision and natural language processing to determine if a given page url is “threatening” to brand safety in any sense. This is accomplished by contextual understanding of the text and the images on the page and combining this information to make a decision.
Below is the recording of the presentation and the meetup discussion.
