In this technical demonstration, we propose a cloud-based Big Data Platform for Social Multimedia Analytics called bBridge that automatically detects and profiles meaningful user communities in a specified geographical region, followed by rich analytics on communities’ multimedia streams. The system executes a community detection approach that considers the ability of social networks to complement each other during the process of latent representation learning, while the community profiling is implemented based on the state-of-the-art multi-modal latent topic modeling and personal user profiling techniques. The stream analytics is performed via cloud-based stream analytics engine, while the multi-source data crawler deployed as a distributed cloud jobs. Overall, the bBridge platform integrates all the above techniques to serve both business and personal objectives.
Digital advertising is when we pay to place messages in front of consumers across digital channels such as search, social media, and websites.
Like traditional advertising, digital advertising is pay to play:
You spend money to have your ad creative placed in front of consumers.
Unlike traditional advertising, however, digital advertising is a game played at light speed:
Ad space is bought and sold in real-time in auctions regulated by sophisticated machine learning algorithms.
Advertisers have the power to target granular audience segments using rich data from ad platforms on demographics and behaviors.
Platforms like Google and Facebook continually place, adjust, boost, and penalize ads based on ad quality and engagement.
Digital advertising gives brands an unprecedented ability to target, reach, and convert prospects at scale.
But there's a big problem...
This year, Artificial Intelligence has the ability to transform the marketing and advertising ecosystem as we know it. The World’s top 3 “Cool Vendors in AI for Marketing” were released in Gartner’s annual review October 5th, 2020, naming SoMin.ai, Cheq, and Qwarry as the world’s most innovative solutions utilizing AI to solve marketing’s biggest pain points. Previously, Gartner’s list featured Zoom, Movie, Cybereason, Snowflake, Gong, Datorama, Wrike, and many other leading SaaS unicorns.
Ads are everywhere. From expensive billboards to car door stickers, ads occupy every visible surface wherever we go. At the turn of the century, advertisers began to shift their focus online.
In the span of twenty years, we established a thriving ecosystem where brands can reach their targeted consumers in increasingly creative ways across the web.
Whether it is Facebook ads, Spotify banners, or pop-up notifications, consumers today are bombarded by ads nearly every second of every day.
Whilst receiving relevant ads may value-add to our busy lives, it does get a little annoying when you see that same pair of sneakers you searched for just once start appearing across all the web applications that you use.
In the end, cheap advertising that simply shoves products and services in consumers’ faces stand a higher chance of backfiring on their advertisers instead.
