Like many people I am frustrated by the difficulty to find shows or Movies across the spectrum. I decided to provide a PoC as first step to build a set of applications aimed to provide a quick and easy access to the live broadcast and on- demand library offers.
What it does
It allows users to get information about TV shows and movies from Broadcast Networks and OTT services. It simplifies the search by using text, quick replies and voice to obtain quick results
How I built it
Using Facebook page linked to a Messenger FB app which interact with wit.ai and request information from a external source (TV guide)
Challenges I ran into
The model training and audio manipulation: Using wit.ai Speech to understand the voice input from Messenger required a audio file manipulation.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The integration of the audio processing to interact with WIT. And an attempt to square the UX to some defined options
What I learned
Integration of AI (ML) to provide a new user experience based on Natural Language Processing and voice-first enabled application.
What's next for WhatzOnTV
Focus on training the model in Wit.ai from user inputs and provide the users guidance to easily find information. Diving in conversational AI. Integration of wit.ai in the future minimalist website to allow a natural UX with the user. Build recommendation based on usage data.
