TiVo's Conversation, a module within our Personalized Discovery Platform, gets viewers to the content they want even faster than traditional methods by allowing them to search using free-flowing conversational dialogue. Conversation is powered by natural-language understanding technology and considers user preferences and context, so results and recommendations are highly relevant. Conversation personalizes the entertainment experience further and makes it more engaging with naturally spoken responses.
