Next step - podcasts and video

In addition to data and visualizations, the framework is easily customized to provide linking with multimedia libraries. This opens up the possibility for authors to include podcasts and videos in their reporting. Using the EOL framework, authors can embed such media into the body of the report, before distributing it in a variety of product formats from web pages to mobile and voice-based applications.

Does Eidosmedia have AI capabilities?

In the past we’ve mainly relied on integrations with 3rd-party providers to enrich our offering with AI services. We’re still using this approach to respond to specific customer needs.

Recently, however, we’ve also started to actively experiment in-house with new Machine Learning models, with the focus on the following use-cases:

  • Suggestion / Completion
  • Summarization
  • Semantic Search

These capabilities are only experimental for now, but depending on performance results, we may decide to productize them as part of our overall offering.
