The Solution

SPARK created custom perpetual media library to help preserve John E. Fetzer’s legacy. The application was built using the latest Artificial Intelligence technologies to automatically analyze documents, images, and videos to create keywords, and rank media based on relevancy to help create contextual searches.

The solution is smart, sustainable and cost-effective to maintain.
