Workflows is a revolutionary new tool that combines file transformation and machine learning and is designed to take control of your organization's content processes. Workflows is a complete solution designed to simplify your content curation process using tailored chain actions and workflow automation through a simple to use UI. Here are a few common ways organizations are able to save time with Workflows.

Check for Plagiarism, Inappropriate Content, and Malicious Programs Through a Single API

Academic institutions are able to leverage Filestack Workflows™ as an all-in-one content checking solution. Workflows is able to check for plagiarism and copyrighted material, potentially explicit content, and malicious programs within a single process, reducing the amount of administrative time that would otherwise need to be spent curating it.

Many educational institutions need to spend large amounts of time ensuring that plagiarism does not occur, as well as ensuring that users are not exposed to potentially offensive images. Higher accuracy in content detection means fewer potentially questionable items make their way through automated content filters, and the amount of overall administrative work that has to be done is reduced.

In addition to plagiarism and explicit content, Workflows is also able to reduce the chances of malicious programs being distributed through a content network, thereby reducing an organization's risk and the amount of time that needs to be spent on security. All of this is handled through a single API for easier management and maintenance.

Automatically Optimize Content for Faster Delivery and Distribution With Workflows

From internal intranets to client-facing portals, many organizations need to quickly upload and optimize large volumes of content. Within a single API, organizations are able to quickly format content to the appropriate standards, optimize it for faster distribution, and return it to their own content pipeline with the help of tailored content automation.

Workflows can be completely customized to bring in all of the power of Filestack into a single unified API call. By automatically adjusting size and file formats, applying watermarking and filters, and cropping and resizing images on-the-fly, Workflows reduces the amount of work that has to be done on the client-side - effectively turning human labor into a single automated process.

Not only does this reduce the amount of work that has to be done before uploading content, but it also reduces the chances that content may need to be manually optimized and formatted later on in the content curation process.

Detect and Analyze Objects With Machine Learning Technology

Today, object detection and analysis is often done through human labor, with moderators manually reviewing and categorizing images. Understandably, this takes a large amount of time, as well as the cost of labor. Machine learning technology is able to use its advanced algorithms and data sets to identify objects such as signs, vehicles, people, or even pets, so your content can be appropriately transformed, censored, or categorized — and do it all within seconds rather than hours.

Today, content is being analyzed for everything from real estate websites (identifying areas of a home being photographed) to law enforcement (identifying license plates and registration tags). Rather than requiring individuals to do this work, it can instead be done through a fast, automated process.

Workflows is a streamlined API stack that can perform all of the content automation you need in a single process.
