Veveo Announces Conversational Speech Interface Capabilities for Next Generation Semantic Search and Personalization Solutions for Pay TV Operators

Veveo, a leading provider of semantic technologies to bridge the usability gap in connected devices and applications with intelligent search, discovery and personalization solutions, announced today that it has successfully integrated voice and natural language capabilities for television and video search, discovery and navigation with its SmartRelevance™ Conversational Platform. The new conversational interface capabilities are available for trial by Pay TV and video services’ operators, connected device manufacturers, and set top box vendors. Veveo’s conversational interface solutions will be commercially available as part of its Reveal 3.0 product launch targeted for early 2013.

“Our conversational interfaces are a logical evolution of our deep semantic technologies currently being used by Tier-1 operators for natural, intuitive and intelligent search, personalization, and discovery features for multi-screen television and video services,” said Murali Aravamudan, founder and CEO of Veveo. “Veveo’s new advanced features will enable users to interact with devices and services to get to desired programs through a natural and intuitive process rather than complicated guides and menus.”

A video demonstration of the functionality of Veveo’s conversational interface that will be available in Reveal 3.0 can be found here. Veveo already serves more than 45 million televisions in the US and Canada with its Reveal 2 and Reveal 2.1 solutions that are used for advanced predictive search and personalization by operators. Veveo Pay TV customers include Comcast, Cablevision, Rogers, and DirecTV, along with Verizon FiOS as a licensee of Veveo’s patents.

Reveal solutions are based on Veveo’s SmartRelevance Conversational Platform that supports an aggregate of more than 100 million devices globally for television, video and mobile services. The platform is backed by a growing intellectual property portfolio of 32 issued patents and more than 67 patent applications filed to date. Current Reveal customers will be able to upgrade to Reveal 3.0.

Veveo Conversational Interface Features

Veveo’s conversational interfaces are designed to:

  • Allow users to perform search and discovery universally across available services without the need for hierarchical navigation or structured menus prevalent in services today.
  • Address navigational challenges for users through applying natural language understanding with Veveo’s core semantic technologies to make usability natural and intuitive.
  • Build upon a proprietary Knowledge Graph and implicit personalization capabilities of its proprietary Personal Graph solutions to create hyper-personalized and efficient user experiences.

The Veveo hybrid-cloud platform can be deployed in operators’ or service providers’ networks, private clouds, or hosted by Veveo. The conversational interfaces maintain state awareness of a conversation to allow users to disambiguate, clarify and get to desired results quickly through a process of natural dialog, similar to how people converse with one another. Veveo’s core predictive search and personalization capabilities aid in making the conversational interfaces intelligent at the outset and adaptive to users’ preferences over time.

Now that the world has connected “things,” we need to build these devices as truly intelligent in order to create instantaneous and precise results. This means you have to do as much of the processing at the point of entry as you can: at the edge. The killer use cases for IoT are becoming manifest through AI engines on edge devices. An autonomous car has this dual edge/cloud analytics model, producing precise, real-time results. In his session at @ThingsExpo, John Crupi, Vice President and Eng...

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
What sort of WebRTC based applications can we expect to see over the next year and beyond? One way to predict development trends is to see what sorts of applications startups are building.

Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice.

Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...
My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...
Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction. In order for IoT to reach its potential, smart devices must be able to work together. Today, there are a slew of interoperability standards being promoted by big names to make this happen: HomeKit, Brillo and Alljoyn. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...
