As a leading contributor to WordPress and one of WordPress VIP’s longest-tenured Gold Agency Partners, 10up understands the carefully-crafted architectures and strategies that drive success on the VIP platform.
Today we are delighted to share that ClassifAI has been named a WordPress VIP technology partner. ClassifAI is our free plugin that leverages leading cloud-based services, like IBM Watson and Microsoft Azure AI, to augment WordPress-powered websites with artificial intelligence and machine learning technology.
WordPress VIP technology partners support enterprise customers using WordPress at scale by forging significant technology integrations for personalization, business intelligence, digital asset management, and, with the addition of ClassifAI, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are revolutionizing technology, and creating new opportunities for enterprises and content creators to streamline internal workflows, enhance visitor experiences, reduce resources, and increase revenue.
With years of experience working with some of the largest digital content creators, 10up understands the important role AI and ML will play in the future of content creation and website experiences. We released ClassifAI in 2019 and have continued to release substantial updates that demonstrate our commitment to driving applications of these exciting technologies forward in WordPress.
Like all 10up open source-solutions, ClassifAI is designed to empower other developers to extend its applications and potential. It’s built with the same extensible approach as WordPress itself, with hooks and filters available to customize service providers and integration points.
Automated Content Tagging and Classification
ClassifAI evaluates your content, provides a list of relevant taxonomy terms, and automates the assignment of taxonomies to content types. This improved metadata can improve internal search capabilities when paired with solutions like 10up’s open-source ElasticPress, and empower publishers to deliver more relevant search results, contextual recommendations, and even personalized content suggestions.
Automated Image Definition and Accessibility
ClassifAI automatically creates descriptive “alt” text for your images, ensuring website accessibility, supporting low bandwidth audiences, and boosting SEO by helping search engines understand your media content and index images.
Automated Image Tagging
ClassifAI automatically classifies images uploaded to the WordPress media library with machine-identified tags, which enables editorial teams to filter, sort, and search through extensive media libraries for relevant media using tags, alt text, or simple terms like “car” or “computer.”
Smart Focal Point Cropping of Images
ClassifAI uses smart cropping and resizing to identify an image’s area of interest or focal point and determine how to best crop the image to maintain its integrity. Now, the most relevant parts of an image are retained in the various image and thumbnail sizes automatically generated in WordPress.
We have implemented a registration program for ClassifAI so we can keep adopters apprised of major updates and beta testing opportunities, gather feedback, and prioritize common use cases. Registrants receive a free license key, which enables one-click updates in the WordPress dashboard.
