Now Google can search for words within the audio tracks in Youtube videos in similar vein to how Google Books can search thru scanned book pages. This will prove quite useful for some of us bloggers and filmakers out there, but the double-edge of this technology means Google’s AGI conquest is tha tmuch further along.

Google Operating System (snippet):

Google’s efforts to improve video search by using speech recognition technology started to become visible in July, when Google launched a gadget for searching inside the political speeches from YouTube. The gadget has been expanded into a new service called GAudi (Google Audio Indexing), which is now available at Google Labs.

“Google Audio Indexing is a new technology from Google that allows users to better search and watch videos from various YouTube channels. It uses speech technology to find spoken words inside videos and lets the user jump to the right portion of the video where these words are spoken. (…) Political videos and election materials are a special case of broadcast news content, a domain that has received a lot of academic and industry attention and is known to perform well,” explains the FAQ.
