Veveo is a software company.

Founded in 2004, Veveo’s customers include Comcast, Cablevision, Rogers, AT&T, DirecTV, and Nokia. The venture-backed company is based near Boston, Massachusetts, and has an intellectual property portfolio of fifty (issued or allowed) patents and 80 filed patent applications.[1] On February 25, 2014, Veveo was acquired by Rovi Corporation.[2][3]

Conversational interfaces[edit]

Veveo’s developments in natural language processing and understanding enabled dialog-based real-time conversational interfaces to be introduced in late 2012.[4] These interfaces allow connected devices and applications to be used with natural conversational intelligence applied to voice interfaces. As a result, users can talk to devices with normal language and devices can respond with natural language responses.[5]
