All these were disclosed in the F8 developer conference held in San Francisco yesterday.  According to “Joaquin Quiñonero Candela” a Facebook director of machine learning. The idea is to allow you to search for people in any of the videos they have shared with you. For instance, If you are on a live video feed with a friend and another friend walks into the video and has a brief conversation with you, it will allow you find it again simply by searching for your friend’s name then you could then jump right into the video at the exact moment your friend walks in. This will be so, so amazing.
