Currently, it is challenging for advertisers and brands to moderate user-generated content such as videos for two reasons:

  1. The need for high internet speed and bandwidth
  2. The legal issues surrounding branding with the public such as logo usage.


We developed an application for Media Advertisers to "auto-detect restricted content" on user-generated & submitted videos. AD-ME is a platform that allows Media Advertisers to challenge the public through contests, collect user-generated videos, and analyze campaign statistics.


Advertisers will post challenges for users to submit videos of themselves interacting with their product for a significant prize. 5G makes for an immediate user submission and IBM Watson will quickly narrow down the qualifiying entries, allowing for a massive user generated response at scale. Advertisers can then select a winning entry and notify the winner.
