Suranga Chandratillake, CEO and founder for Blinkx.com, and a Cambridge University-trained computer scientist talks about his vision for Blinkx.com and their solution for more effective video search.
Most video search engines currently rely upon finding clips by the words or "metadata" surrounding video clips. Blinkx has spiders that search the audio track of millions of videos and indexes them. Blinkx does still rely heavily upon meta data, especially when not all videos contain audio/speech.
"We will be the single biggest video search engine on the Web," Suranga Chandratillake, Blinkx co-founder and chief technology officer, said in an interview (with Reuters).
