In The Mood
Honorable Mention
'In The Mood' is the TV remote control that knows what you want to watch - accurately. To make 'In The Mood' accurate we analyze hundreds of metrics to predict what you want to watch at that moment. This is done anonymously and safely. The data includes social media, viewing and listening histories, demographics, biometrics, environment and real-time sensor data. Several times per second we extract mood and behavior pattern information that can be used to enhance predictions of user content choices. In addition this feedback gives us incredibly accurate click-through rate predictions for advertising.
