Programmatic And The Next User Experience

At the annual summer Programmatic Insider Summit we test for quality. How are marketers, trading desks and publishers beating back the the bots and fraudsters? What best practices are emerging not only to track users across devices but to craft messaging that fits the contexts? How can the creative finally feel less robotic than the delivery mechanisms? And are traditional notions of editorial context finally reasserting themselves after years of data-driven buying focused obsessively on audience? 

The new watchwords for 2016 and beyond are quality, user experience, content. At the Programmatic Insider Summit we ask the big question: whether and how data-driven and automated advertising is up to the assignment.
