Videos are the largest consumer of any storage, the cloud being number one. So anything that can reduce large video sizes to something small can save a lot of space. This is where Fujitsu comes in to play. Fujitsu created an algorithm they claim can reduce the size of a video by up to 90%! The only downside to this is that only AI can interpret the video.
The key to this new technology that was developed by Japanese scientists, they say that it looks at key areas of the images. Looking at these areas creates a prioritization and compresses that to the smallest size AI can read. The concept of this algorithm is that it will enable users to save a lot of cloud space, letting them save more items. This is always a bonus for users because now they can save more videos via the cloud.
This concept, in practice, will begin the compression on the device itself. Then using a specialist chip and the cloud, the two are joined up. The result is a continuous feedback loop. With the rise of ultra high-res phone cameras and 4k security cams, this tech has made itself more of a priority. Fujitsu will make this tech available by the end of the 2020 fiscal year. With this, they introduce it to many third-party companies and introduce it into lots of different applications.
