Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DISCOVERY OF, IDENTIFICATION OF, AND ONGOING MONITORING OF VIRAL MEDIA ASSETS
Abstract:
Systems and methods are provided herein for automatically generating universal metadata for non-linear content when the non-linear content is determined to be viral. To this end, the systems and methods determine a first rate at which first users are consuming non-linear content from a first source. In response to determining that the first rate exceeds the threshold, the systems and methods determine a second source that from which second users are consuming the non-linear content, and a second rate at which the second users are consuming the non-linear content from the second source. In response to determining that the second rate exceeds the threshold, the systems and methods generate universal metadata for the non-linear content by automatically populating metadata fields of by scraping metadata fitting predefined criteria corresponding to the metadata fields from the first source and from the second source, and store the populated metadata fields to a database.
