YouTube begins testing automatic AI chapter generation to save you time watching (and editing) videos



YouTube, like many other services, regularly launches tests that may become features in the future. One of the last overtakes her 9to5Google and it is intended to save us time both in editing videos and in viewing them: chapter generation.



Currently, if a creator wants to divide a video uploaded to YouTube into easily accessible chapters must resort to the description and the writing of the minutes of the moment in which they begin. Something that may change if YouTube finally makes the automatic generation of chapters through artificial intelligence a global function for everyone.






"We want to make it easier for people to navigate videos with video chapters, so we are experimenting with the automatic addition of video chapters."

The division of videos into chapters began to be deployed about a year ago on mobile devices, but the step taken now has to do with the automatic generation of these without the need for any manual action. They will appear alone.



"We want to make it easier for people to navigate videos with video chapters, so we are experimenting with the automatic addition of video chapters (so that creators do not have to manually add timestamps)," they explain from YouTube.

Machine learning and text recognition aim to achieve this 'magic'




To achieve automation, the Google platform uses machine learning as a system for text recognition that can give a clue about this division into episodes. Of course, at the moment they do not offer more details about the experimental function, nor have we been able to find a video in which it is present.



It should be noted that this feature will differ from the one that we can sometimes see in Google search results, when when searching on a certain topic the search engine offers us the timeline of a video in which different moments of interest stand out. A feature, by the way, that also works automatically.
