The Weather Company, an IBM Business, is introducing major enhancements to its Max Engage solution for news stations, which will now include the power of IBM Watson, a cognitive digital solution for news stations. Using Watson technology, weathercasters will be able to find the information they need through natural language queries. Updates to the Max Engage system include the ability to automatically detect weather and traffic events, create personalized content and video about those events, and intelligently deliver that content to the right audience, in the right place, at the right time. As a result, broadcasters will be empowered to seamlessly deliver personalized digital content for its audiences with higher frequency without burdening news station staff.

"We have made tremendous advances in Max Engage’s ability to automatically create and deliver individualized content and videos for weather and traffic-related events,” said Bill Dow, Executive - Media Solutions, The Weather Company. “With these new enhancements, newscasters can produce up to 10 times more content than they do today. Through targeted distribution, stations can share this content through alerts only to those users in the part of the DMA that will be affected, such as when traffic on a key highway route slows below normal or when high temps will exceed 90 degrees in a specific location.”

Max Engage with Watson can have a meaningful impact on newsroom staffing by radically accelerating the manual, time-consuming process of curating a menu of relevant, timely subject matter across digital properties.

Content Creation and Delivery with Max Engage
Content Curation: Using intelligent, content curation, the Max Engage system uses relevant weather information it discovers to produce fun, animated, silent videos with as much or as little human intervention desired. The feature will automatically serve end-users with unique, updated videos multiple times a day.

Geo-Fencing: The weather video forecasts will be pushed to consumers through mobile, social, and web at the same time. For mobile, through automated geo-fencing technology, the content of each video will be truly individualized based on a user’s location down to street level.

Enhanced Storytelling using IBM Watson
Enhanced Storytelling: Max Engage with Watson increases audience engagement with the content itself by using the Watson Natural Language Understanding API to service relevant content, such as weather history and current conditions, to enhance storytelling. In future updates, Watson will also help mine unstructured data from the Internet of Things or other data sources to highlight impacts to consumers such as street flooding and down power lines. The Weather Company will be teaching Watson to answer personal questions via voice or text that will empower consumers to make better decisions throughout their day, such as “Will I need a jacket today?” or “When is the best time to start gardening?”

Social Streaming
Interactive Social Streaming: Max Engage with Watson will allow broadcasters to stream to social platforms directly from their familiar Max interface. This seamless integration will allow the broadcaster to see the audience comments in real time while streaming so they can see the most frequently asked questions for them to answer, keeping the audience engaged and the conversation relevant.

NAB attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about Max Engage with Watson as well as The Weather Company's other cognitive solutions at booth SL4711. Hourly presentations will demonstrate how The Weather Company enables the newsroom of the future with 24/7 production of content to meet consumer demands and a combination of location and weather data for targeting and effective monetization. The booth will have both a physical and a virtual set to show how augmented reality technology can be added to an existing set and the transition to a virtual environment using Max Reality. See how The Weather Company is uniquely positioned to help broadcasters become more essential to their audience and advertisers in this changing world.
