Monday, December 18, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
How often have you heard the term multi-channel thrown around as a marketing jargon? Quite often, I bet! You may have also heard about the concept of “cross-media” used whenever a marketer has presented a strategy. In today´s advertising world, campaigns are being designed to constitute a mix of “traditional” and “digital” media. Agencies understand that consumers and buyers are impacted by several kinds of media. Therefore, they are more frequently combining both traditional and digital media into their campaigns. This is referred to as cross-media campaigns. Do keep in mind...

Google has released the new Chrome browser version 62, which is estimated to affect 60% of Web browsers. One of the primary focus of this update is a warning related to missing or improperly configured security certificates.

From June 13th 2014, the EU has strengthened and harmonised the Consumer protection rules.

AI-first marketing will perfect customer experience

  In the midst of all the hype about artificial intelligence (AI), you may occasionally pause to ask: “What’s new here?” After all, did we not have machine learning applications 10 (or maybe even 20) years ago? In the marketing domain specifically, you may be asking how today’s AI is different from, say, an application that has been personalizing real-time content insertion for several years. The best way to answer that could be to consider the evolution of AI in the areas of driving and transportation. In the past, the applications of AI included driver-assist features ...

Although the term “artificial intelligence” or AI has been popular for decades, recent discussions on “cognitive learning,” “cognitive computing,” and “cognitive algorithms” have made everyone more conscious of the implications AI has on our daily lives. AI is one of those topics that generate contradictory feelings. On the one hand, we are impressed by the concept. We are also enthusiastic about the opportunities AI can open up as it touches all kinds of lives. On the other hand, though, there is fear. The movie industry has played a crucial role in not only familiarizing A...
