  • Digital voice assistants set a trend in the SEO market of the future

    Digital voice assistants set a trend in the SEO market of the future

    In the age of digitization, the consumption of content across different channels often changes quickly. Anyway, the search for content itself has remained relatively constant, since search engines are dominant for many years - with Google taking the lead and being far ahead of all competitors. At least, we see as well more and more digital assistants with speech recognition entering the market, like Apple Siri, Samsung Viv, Amazon Echo, Microsoft Cortana, Facebook M, SoundHound Hound and Google's own product Google Home.

  • Spoiler alert! The future is …

    Spoiler alert! The future is …

    Spoilers are everywhere. Remember that season’s finale episode that you’ve been planning to watch once you get home from work? Spoiled. Or that insanely good plot twist that was supposed to blow your mind? Yup, spoiled too. It doesn’t matter where you are or what time zone you are in. Chances are, someone from across the globe will not be able to contain their excitement and will drop the bomb on social media before that mind-blowing plot twist even had the chance to ‘surprise’ you first hand. It sucks, right?

    Fake store growth requires new cybercrime definition, says JC3 and APWG

    The Japan Cybercrime Control Center (JC3) and the global counter-cybercrime association APWG just released a report detailing the enormous, rapid growth in fake shopping websites pretending to be retail shopping sites, using data from the Japanese National Policy Agency (NPA). These “fake store” websites accounted for about 7,000 reports of consumers in Japan being victimized by the theft of money or their personal information between June 2016 and June 2017.

    Meltwater launches data science platform Fairhair.ai to tame real-time market signals found in world’s online data

    In the quest to become data-driven, companies are increasingly investing in Business Intelligence (BI) software to gain a competitive advantage. Yet, the insights generated by those tools are mostly fueled by data from within a company’s walls, instead of the real-time market signals found externally online – from consumer opinions to corporate filings. Outside data, however, can unlock key indicators about an industry or competitor, making the time-intensive task of harnessing the volume and variety of global data worthwhile. And although advances in artificial intelligence have made it easier to capture and analyze this data to create powerful insights, most commercial AI tools are one-size-fits-all models with limited capabilities.

    8 ways to ‘speak human’ and change the game

    Nobody starts out automatically caring about your products or services. They care about how you can make a difference in their lives. No matter the context, all relationships begin with a “handshake moment,” whether literally or figuratively—those first few introductory moments that reveal a great deal about the character of the person standing before you. Why should company interactions with current and prospective customers or clients be any different?

  • Prospects of the video industry

    Prospects of the video industry

    The digital media and entertainment industry continues to be in constant change. New streaming offers will hit the market, merge or even disappear, and some will break new ground in their efforts to engage audiences. All this won’t be without consequences but affect the entire media industry, says Jim O'Neill, principal analyst, Ooyala, and gives some predictions of what he thinks will happen:

  • When I grow up, I want to be a sense maker

    When I grow up, I want to be a sense maker

    Ask a five-year-old what they want to be when they grow up. Chances are: ‘machine learning specialist’ will not rise to the top of the list. For decades, our show and tells have been catwalks for classic capitalism, where mini pilots and policemen strut their oversized uniforms for kindergarten audiences. We’re very comfortable with our kids wanting a career as a doctor or a lawyer when they grow up; we may even entertain the idea of builder or architect for some years. But, at the end of the day, when varsity fees are all paid up, we’re still pulling our old-school paradigms, like a hood, over our eyes and expecting our kids to have the same jobs that we’ve had.

Category: June 2018 - Mobile & Video Marketing

Almost a decade in the making since the inception of Bitcoin, and with a current market-cap hovering around half a trillion dollars USD, Bitcoin, cryptocurrency and blockchain have become common to the tech savvy. While most people don’t understand how they work, Bitcoin and cryptocurrency are not only hot topic buzzwords, but they’ve created thousands of multi-millionaires. Even so, most people in the mainstream have no interest or intent to embrace Bitcoin and, as such, it still has veritably no bearing on everyday life as one still can’t even pay for a cup of coffee with any cryptocurrency.
