Vody is a New York-based search platform that allows its users to utilize its database of television shows to get recommendations for which shows to watch. The software can recommend shows and movies from various platforms, including Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu.
The company has a mobile application that is available for both iOS and Android devices. The application applies natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning to connect users to television and movie recommendations. Using linear regression, the software can make correlations between what the user already watches on television and what the use may like to watch next.
On the interface, users can see new arrivals of shows and shows that are trending with popularity. They can also create watch lists for shows they want to view later and play lists to organize all of their favorite shows.
Vody uses the principles of serendipity, novelty, and diversity in order to keep users interested in the recommendations the artificial intelligence makes. It also relies on coverage to give its users enough content so they feel that they have sufficient choices.
