Mirriad’s AI slips ads into empty spaces in online videos


January 11, 2020: Software company Mirriad has developed a way for adverts to be “inserted” into films and television shows streamed online.

It uses artificial intelligence techniques to recognize objects in a scene and spot slots where branded goods and posters can be added without looking out of place.

The aim is to ultimately tailor the product placements to individual viewers’ interests.

The London-based ad tech firm showed off its software at the CES tech expo in Las Vegas Jan 2020, as BBC Click’s Lara Lewington reports.
