Opera is a Norwegian software company that creates some of the world's most popular web browsers, Opera News, and other services. The company is a pioneer in leveraging artificial intelligence to make digital content recommendations. To ensure users are served a wide variety of videos, and to avoid recommending the same content multiple times, Opera built a smart video reduplication system inside its video content recommendation platform.
Milvus, an open-source vector database built by Zilliz, is used to power Opera’s smart video deduplication system.
Build a video content deduplication system that can remove similar contents from video recommendations and ensure users discover a wide variety of unique content.
"The Milvus community is very active and has an abundance of resources available for its users. I drew much inspiration from Milvus' demos and bootcamp. I didn’t have to start from scratch, but rather built the deduplication system based on the reverse image search demo the community provides. This helped us quickly developed a minimum viable product (MVP) and significantly lowered the development costs."
