How Amazon Comprehend powers tagging in Brightspot

AutoTag and supporting plugins integrate with Amazon Comprehend, a natural language processing service that suggests tags based on text content. AutoTag supplements the Brightspot Tag content type, allowing editors to manually tag theme-related content.

Amazon Comprehend powers Brightspot's "Suggested Tags" feature. When publishing a piece of content, users have the ability to request a list of suggested tags that are relevant for the article they are editing. Comprehend's key phrases/entities detection matches keywords relevant to the story against existing tags in the Brightspot instance, then offers these as suggestions increasing publishing efficiency for editors and reporters.

Amazon Comprehend and Brightspot: How it works

When an audio or video file is uploaded to Brightspot, the platform can automatically send that file to be analyzed by the Amazon Transcribe service. This works for content in any of the 16 languages supported by Amazon. Brightspot then receives a response back from the service that includes the words spoken with a confidence level of the transcription. That means AWS can help identify words in the transcription it might be uncertain about so editors can clean up the transcript as needed. Transcribe can even identify if there are multiple speakers in the content.
