Bouygues Telecom choisit Jinni pour offrir la première expérience de recherche de programmes TV sémantique en France

Jinni a annoncé aujourd'hui la signature d'un accord de licence avec l'opérateur de télécommunications français Bouygues Telecom portant sur la mise en place d’une solution de recherche de contenus unique et de nouvelle génération. La technologie de Jinni permettra une expérience utilisateur supérieure grâce à de la recherche sémantique, de la navigation par humeurs et d’autres mécanismes de découverte intuitifs.

Le service sera disponible en français sur un catalogue comprenant des films et séries TV français et internationaux. Bouygues Telecom a pris les devants sur le marché de la télévision à péage en France en étant le premier à mettre sur pied un tel service de recherche et de découverte de contenus répondant aux goûts et humeurs personnels des utilisateurs. Les abonnés de Bouygues Telecom pourront trouver les vidéos de leur choix par intrigues (héros criminels, rien ne va plus, tomber amoureux, malhonnêteté...), humeurs (se sentir bien, suspense, intelligent, sincère...), époques, lieux, styles, type d’audience et récompenses.

“Nous sommes fiers de nouer ce partenariat avec Bouygues Telecom et d’amener leur immense marché à mieux connaître notre moteur de découverte sémantique et personnalisée ainsi que le Jinni Entertainment Genome™”, a déclaré Yosi Glick, fondateur et CEO de Jinni. “La France est dans une période prolifique d'innovation et d’introduction de nouveaux produits de consommation TV et de recommandation de contenus. Bouygues Telecom est un opérateur de télécommunications d’avant-garde qui cherche de manière proactive à offrir aux consommateurs la meilleure expérience de divertissement. Il s'agit d'un partenariat naturel entre deux sociétés à la pointe de l'innovation en matière d’expérience télévisuelle.”

“Bouygues Telecom cherche sans cesse à offrir à ses clients des expériences diversifiées et novatrices. C'est pourquoi nous sommes très heureux de collaborer avec Jinni afin d'inclure sa technologie de pointe dans notre écosystème pour le bénéfice de nos clients. En fait, notre objectif est d’utiliser l’approche avant-gardiste de Jinni afin de permettre à nos abonnés d’avoir encore plus de plaisir avec notre panoplie d’offres de contenus riches et abondantes.” a déclaré Thibaut Keraval, responsable des plateformes fixes et mobiles de Bouygues Telecom.

La technologie de Jinni sera d'abord proposée en mode « deuxième écran » au travers d’une application sur tablette afin d’offrir un outil facile, rapide et amusant à tous les utilisateurs leur permettant de rechercher et découvrir de nouveaux films et séries TV qu’ils vont aimer.

Le service de découverte vidéo de Jinni, basé sur l’ajout de gènes sémantiques, se distingue des autres moteurs de recherche en analysant avec plus de précision les programmes vidéo et de télévision et en proposant des recommandations plus personnalisées utilisant le langage naturel humain. Grâce à sa technologie de Compréhension du Langage Naturel (Natural Language Understanding), Jinni répond à la demande croissante de la part des utilisateurs d’une expérience de divertissement multi-écrans de nouvelle génération sur décodeurs, tablettes, smartphones, PC/Mac, télévisions connectées et consoles de jeux.

Jinni propose une série de fonctionnalités de découverte holistique qui capturent toute la richesse et les nuances de l’expression et expérience humaine. Par exemple, au lieu d'utiliser les catégories générales telles que "comédie” pour trouver un titre, les utilisateurs seront en mesure de trouver des programmes qui correspondent à « intelligent, excentrique et drôle avec un humour sec. »

À propos de Jinni

Jinni est le premier et réel moteur de découverte en matière de divertissement basé sur les goûts et les envies des utilisateurs. En utilisant la génétique de contenus et une compréhension nuancée des goûts des utilisateurs, le moteur de Jinni fournit une expérience intuitive et personnalisée unique qui accroît la consommation et la satisfaction des consommateurs.

Le service de Jinni est rendu possible grâce à l’Entertainment Genome™ contenant des milliers de gènes qui sont ensuite associés individuellement à chaque programme pour en décrire l'humeur, le style, l'intrigue, le cadre etc. Basé sur une analyse sémantique des programmes, Jinni est une alternative complémentaire aux traditionnels genres et profite à la fois à la qualité des vidéos recommandées et à l'expérience intuitive de l’utilisateur. L’Entertainment Genome™ indexe chaque nouveau titre suivant un traitement en langage naturel breveté (Natural Language Processing) des résumés officiels et commentaires des utilisateurs.

Le service de découverte de vidéo de Jinni a été récompensé comme « Best Product Idea » par CableLabs. Jinni est lauréat des Webby Awards, de Red Herring 100 Europe, de OnHollywood 100 et nominé aux SXSW Web Awards et aux TechCrunch Europas. Jinni est également un finaliste des Connected TV Awards for Outstanding Technology Innovation en 2012 et a été choisi en tant meilleur moteur de recommandation de films par CNET et Lifehacker. Jinni fournit son service de découverte et de recommandation de contenus à des entreprises du secteur en Europe parmi lesquelles Belgcacom et Prisa TV.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
