Cognika’s analytics software takes video and imagery management to a whole new level. The tool’s unique search and analytic algorithms serves as a powerful trend identification engine comprehensively viewing the entire knowledge landscape (video, data, text, and images), recognizing key patterns and extracting insights in ways not feasible until now. Traditional keyword search engines employ a one-keyword-to-many-answers approach, presenting users with an exhaustive list of possible answers. Cognika’s advanced search technology inverts the paradigm (many-to- few) in order to generate a targeted list of highly relevant answers. In addition, Cognika’s unique n-way matching technology compares message sections to reduce the possibility of false positives in the results.
