Connecting offline data with online data raises the bar when it comes to serving and seeing relevant ads. But what about the "invisible" relationships between consumers and brands: ads that don't necessarily market or advertise the product the consumer purchases, but rather trigger a reminder or an interest?
MediaMath scientists are working to apply artificial intelligence in machine-learning models that the company's chief scientists say will power smarter digital advertising this year -- predicting intent, not just predicting a response to an ad from consumers based on their past history.
TV drives search traffic, but chief strategy officers often don't feel comfortable talking about things their respective companies cannot do. Still, I like to look ahead at the possibilities and ask what if.
