    Man vs Machine: Will AI put our humanity at stake?

    The vision of an all-knowing, omni-present intelligent being that forms the backbone of our everyday lives has been portrayed in movies that captivate the imagination of many. Today, that vision is not too far from reality, and we are seeing this at work through artificial intelligence (AI) – from AI-powered voice assistants like Alexa, to helping solve traffic issues, enabling the sequencing of DNA, tackling business problems and transforming industries such as tech, healthcare to logistics and fintech.

    Engrossing the thought on Native Advertising

    According to the Seeding Alliance's Native Advertising Study, the industry is in agreement that native advertising is an attractive source of revenue for publishers and advertisers through its integrated placement and scaling capabilities, especially for mobile Internet use.

    A strategic approach to video marketing makes the big difference

    The good old moving picture, aka video, is a popular tool for all companies that have something to show or to explain, making it interesting for marketing. Besides the fact that almost 90% of Internet users between the ages of 14 and 29 watch videos online every week, meaning that the most potent buyer group is undoubtedly video affine.

If you manage to get into the microcosm of a potential buyer, advertising on video content can actually be lucrative.

    5 tips on how to reach B2B decision-makers despite ePrivacy

    Reaching the desired audience has always been a challenge not to be sneezed at for advertisers and it can be assumed that it will be even more difficult in future to place advertising messages in a targeted manner.
