IBM’s Watson Tallies The Top-Scoring TVs For Super Bowl

Choosing a TV for the Big Game can be a tough call for consumers, but IBM Watson, in its daily trend report, has whittled down the playing field based on product popularity.

 Using natural language processing and machine learning, IBM’s proprietary technology platform scours the Internet — including social networks, blogs, forums, comments, ratings and reviews — and monitors tens of millions of online conversations related to purchase decisions to identify top-trending products.

The result is the following Top 10 sampling of TVs that are getting the most buzz this Super Bowl season. The listings, in order of brand popularity, include sample snippets of conversation culled from thousands of sources ranging from Twitter to blogs to review sites.

*Samsung 55-inch 4K Ultra HD smart LED TV

What consumers are saying: “The best TV I have owned. It plays AVI, MKV, MP4 and MOV files natively and at HD or SD resolutions. Browsing for videos is very fast and thumbnails are loaded for each file. The TV supports HDMI commands and will auto-switch to the correct HDMI port when a device powers on.”

What consumers are saying: “A superb 4K TV that is modestly priced. I wanted to invest in a 4K TV but was challenged on what brand and model to buy. I decided to go with this Sony 4K TV and I am very glad I did. I am now more pleased watching Blu-ray videos and playing video games with my PlayStation 4.”

*Sony Bravia 40-inch LED smart HDTV

*Vizio M-Series 70-inch LED smart 4K Ultra HD TV

What consumers are saying: “Has AMAZING picture quality! The only knock on the TV was the sound, but I was getting surround sound anyway so that didn’t matter to me.”
