How to setup AI image analysis in the watcher


The Watchers AI Image Analysis is an advanced function that uses AI to analyze and redact images within a document. Using the AI Image Analysis feature within the Watcher, users are able to instantly redact images on unlimited files without any required input within CaseGuard after the Watcher is set up.

To start using the Watchers AI Image Analysis, select the AI Image Analysis option and select what you would like detected. Search results are based on selected detection options (faces/heads, license plates, vehicles, etc.) Once you select what you would like detected, add your files and the watcher will instantly begin analyzing and redacting any image selected.

For users needing to redact all faces within 200 documents such as a Resume, the Watcher AI Image Analysis will prove to be a valuable function. Manually, this could take hours. Using the Watcher’s AI Image Analysis feature will only take minutes of automatic processing.
