NEW YORK -- At today's TV of Tomorrow conference in New York, Visible World and Cognitive Networks announced a solution that makes it easy for Smart TV viewers to set reminders for TV shows they are interested in watching. Leveraging Cognitive Networks' Automated Content Recognition (ACR) solution which is currently being deployed by leading Smart TV manufacturers, Visible World's Smart TV Program Remind App offers a simple and compelling way for TV programmers to further enhance their program promotion efforts.

Cognitive Networks' advanced platform makes it possible for Smart TVs to recognize the content playing on their screens. Visible World's Smart TV Program Remind App makes use of that ability to recognize TV program promotion content playing on a Smart TV to display an interactive overlay on the promotion spot, making it easy for the viewer to set a reminder for the promoted show--with a single click on their TV remote. If a viewer chooses to set a reminder, the Program Remind App displays a friendly reminder a minute before the show is about to start. TV programmers now have an intelligent way to remind viewers about a program they explicitly expressed interest in--just before the program is about to start--regardless of what channel they are watching. It will work even if they are playing games or viewing over-the-top content at the time of the program reminder.

"Visible World's Smart TV Program Remind App presents viewers with convenience, while delivering incremental viewing and insights that further enhance TV program promotion effectiveness for TV programmers," said Seth Haberman, CEO of Visible World.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
