More about Brand Logo Detection technology: 

Brand Logo Detection identifies, through an API, the products’ and companies’ logos in pictures posted on any social media with attachable images, even if the name of the brand is not mentioned on the description or on hashtags and tags.

The technology analyzes over 1 million images at once without human help, expanding the engagement possibility and channel searches beyond term associated to the brand. The researches’ domain is expanded to moments where the brand is present, but not mentioned. For example: by monitoring #happyhour, #barbeque, #nightclub on Instagram, we can create a share of voice report of the beer brands that appear the most on the images.
