Managing metadata is a challenge, but managing metadata when you have team members all over the world contributing to the content of a project is scary difficult. TransLattice developed an award-winning neural network, allowing major producers to breathe a bit easier. Their CEO, and co-founder, Frank Huerta joins us to explain how it works.
