Contextual Advertising Report

In a recent study conducted by GumGum, the world’s leading computer vision technology company, 61% of US respondents reported they would continue to keep spending on contextual advertising. So what is contextual advertising, and why is it so important?

Contextual advertising is a form of artificial intelligence with the goal of creating targeted advertisements for its consumers. The advertisements are selected by an automated system based on the user and the content they enjoy. This approach allows companies to be more specific about the content they distribute and helps them deliver emotionally relevant branded messages.

GumGum recognizes the power of artificial intelligence and contextual advertising. They are dedicated to extracting valuable information from the public and proprietary data sets to implement it for industries across the board. With this knowledge, GumGum with the help of The Drum Studios, decided to conduct a study on contextual advertising. By doing so, GumGum determined the overall growing interest of this type of targeted advertising and why it has become so valuable for businesses.

I wanted to see if you would be interested in connecting with an executive from GumGum to discuss the recent study on contextual advertising. They are also available to discuss the misconceptions of artificial intelligence and contextual advertising. For more information on this study watch, A Walk Down Contextual Lane created by GumGum.

New AI app reduces back pain by 40%

Boston based digital therapy startup Kaia Health launches a new app that uses AI and patent pending motion tracking technologyto personalize treatment programs tomanage and treat chronic low back pain(LBP) which has been shown in clinical studies to reduce chronic back pain by 40% and could save the US economy billions each year.

Created by Kaia Health the motion tracking technology requires no additional hardware.The app has been registered as a Class 1 medical device with the FDA which allowsusers to self-manage their back pain through physical exercise, behavioural exercise (e.g. relaxation and meditation) and education.

Earlier this year the digital therapy startup launched the Perfect Squat Challenge App, the world’s first Artificial Intelligence-powered motion tracking fitness app that turns a smartphone into a personal trainer. In Q4 2018 the company intends to roll out20 more motion tracking exercises for the app.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) LBP is the single leading cause of disability worldwide. In fact, according to the American Chiropractic Association(ACA) 31 million Americans experience LBP,and one half of all working Americans admit to having back pain symptoms each year.

The epidemic of prescription opioid overuse and abuse has also led many health groupsincluding the ACA, the American College of Physicians (ACP) and the American Association of Pain Management (AAPM) to reconsider the value of a non-pharmalogicalapproach to common conditions such asLBP.

The ACP, the largest medical specialty society in the world, updated its LBPtreatment guidelines in 2017 to support a conservative approach to care. Published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, and based on a review of randomized controlled trials and observational studies, the ACPguidelines cite heat therapy, massage, acupuncture and spinal manipulation (a centerpiece of chiropractic care) as possible options for non-invasive, non-drug therapies for LBP. The guidelines state that only when such treatments provide little or no relief should patients move on to medicines such as ibuprofen or muscle relaxants, which research indicates have limited pain relief effects. According to the ACP, prescription opioids should be a last resort for those suffering from LBP, as the risk of addiction and overdose may outweigh the benefits.

The Kaia app has been developed by aleading digital therapy company Kaia Health in conjunction with physiotherapists, pain management physicians and clinical psychologists.

The app uses a multidisciplinary digital approach which offers users online video-based learning programmes that covereducation, physiotherapy (includingexercises for the lower back and lateral muscles) and psychological strategies(including mindfulness and muscle relaxation).

The AI tailors treatment programs for each user from over 120 exercises, and motion tracking technology ensures that the exercises are performed correctly using a smartphone, tablet or iPad without the need for additional hardware.

Each session lasts for 15 minutes and can be accessed anywhere 24 hours a day. The app also features a chat function whichconnects users to a physiotherapist or sport scientist for motivation and exercise related questions.

Two clinical trials into the Kaia app show a significant reduction in LBP by 40%, well above the clinical threshold of pain improvement. The second study shows a40% long-term retention of users for aminimum of 6 months.

The Kaia app was developed in Germanywhere it has been downloaded over 100,000 times in its first year. The Kaia app is now being reimbursed for over 20 million patients globally.

Kaia Health is member of the Digital Therapeutics Alliance (DTA), an association of international manufacturers for digital therapeutic products that are evidence-based.

Konstantin Mehl, CEO of Kaia Health says:Opioid addiction and overdose is a huge issue in the US, and is, according to the ACP, a last resort for those suffering from LBP. Their 2017 LBP treatment guidelines support a non-pharmalogical approach to care using non-invasive, non-drug therapies. A holistic, multidisciplinary treatment of LBPhas always been a resource-intense, costlyundertaking which makes it hard forpatients to get access to the therapy.However, with the Kaia app we’re digitising therapy which offers as many patients as possible access to effective treatment ofLBP. This empowers and motivatesindividuals to take control, and self-manage their condition with evidenced-based, non-pharmacological, cost-effective alternatives and this could save the US economy billions each year. The Kaia app, and advances in technology, demonstrates why we need to rethink how we treat diseaseconditions such as LBP, and make digitalself-management a more realistic part of treatment.

The Kaia app is available on iOS and Android, and can be downloaded via GooglePlay and AppStore. The first 7 days of the program are free. To unlock the full functionality the costs are: 3 months: $23.99, 6 months: $64.99 and 12 months: $94.99.

BlackBerry Spark

By Amardeep Singh

BlackBerry just unveiled BlackBerry Spark, the only Enterprise of Things(EoT) platform designed and built for ensuring ultra-secure hyperconnectivity from all design aspects.

So what’s new in the anticipated release? BlackBerry promises better applications and uses for a wide variety of systems that run on AI and require high level security. Spark will allow enterprises devices to benefit from the maximum use of softwares and platforms such as Watson and Amazon AWS.

As the workforce will evolve, BlackBerry Spark will provide end users with the ability to move seamlessly between all profiles- professional and personal. Critics are indeed impressed by its unique industry-specific safety-certifications, such as ISO 26262 often seen in automobiles. But hyperconnectivity is just one piece of the entire system.

As users would realize, EoT can be put to various uses in organizations.
Employees for example can use virtual assistants like Alexa and put them to work by providing access to ultra secure files. Critical patients in hospitals can relax a bit better knowing that the systemautomatically prepares the staff and any supporting machines while readying emergency care units in the incident of a serious issue.

In the transportation sector, BlackBerry Spark allows connected vehicles to convey messages in real time while being totally encrypted and certified by BlackBerry Spark as genuine. This ensures validation and protects against unwanted issues and attacks. CEO John Chen agrees that smarphones have sparked a revolution in the way people live their
lives but are often blind to personal safety and data encryption.

CCS Insight had long predicted the overlap of EoT, IoT with businesses and users as smartphones became more common. The company calls it a bold but necessary step in bridging worlds and helping people create new
and better experiences.

BlackBerry’s long commitment of providing customer privacy and protection without monetizing client data is one of it’s greatest merits in a world ruled by smartphones.

BlackBerry Spark has already leveraged the company’s portfolio of technology, having earned more than 80 certifications, which is more than any other IoT vendor.

This includes FIPS-validation, AES 256-bit encryption to provide data protection at all levels while following strict international regulatory requirements. To the surprise of the average user, BlackBerry is the only EoT platform provider to obtain Common Criteria EAL4+. And that goes for both iOS and Android.

Where Angels Meet: A Cinematic VR Experience

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be an angel? Where Angels Meet, a new cinematic VR experience, launching today exclusively for Oculus Rift, follows the life of a young African-American man named Marcus from the perspective of his guardian angel. The VR experience allows viewers to don their wings and visit heavenly landscapes, as well as transcend time to witness key moments in Marcus’ life.

Where Angels Meet is available for $4.99 at: Oculus.com/experiences/rift/1741878345881014/

Where Angels Meet was created by Angeles Vista Creative Ventures (AVCV), one of the winners of 2017 Oculus Launchpad program. AVCV has released a trailer for the experience at WhereAngelsMeet.com/trailer/

Where Angels Meet is a unique, narrative VR experience which touches on themes of the afterlife, spirituality, faith, racism and the common challenges of life. The story follows important milestones and events in Marcus’ life. Having grown up with the understanding that his mother died in childbirth, Marcus finds solace in his imagination and strength in his beliefs, as he transports himself to the marvelous “Garden of Light” where he can meditate and find comfort from life’s worries.

“Although Where Angels Meet is a fictional story, the aim is to provide insight into the life of a young African-American man, from a unique perspective,” said Micah Jackson, CEO of AVCV and creator of Where Angels Meet. “Marcus’ story parallels many of the issues and challenges that people of color face in the modern age and virtual reality is a powerful medium to convey this message.”

The “Garden of Light” is a wondrous, lush and beautiful place and serves as the central hub of the experience, as throughout the story different sections of the Garden will be visited. The “Garden of Light” is one of the most beautiful environments to ever be created in virtual reality. It will truly leave a lasting impression on viewers and can only be seen using the Oculus Rift.

Complaint Against Google, Facebook, Twitter, Apple and Instagram

Just recently, Larry Klayman who is the founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch and former U.S. Department of Justice prosecutor, announced filing a class action lawsuit which alleges social media giants such as Google/YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Apple, and Instagram conspired by entering into an explicit or tacit agreement, in parallel to each other, to restrain trade in violation of Section 1 of the Sherman Act. See Freedom Watch v. Google/YouTube et. al (Civil Action Number 18-cv-2030, U.S. District Court for District of Columbia).

Complaint alleges intent and effect of this agreement in restraint of trade is to quash and/or limit advocacy by conservatives and pro-Trump pubic interest groups, advocates, and others to further leftist anti-conservative agendas of these social media giants and help bring down the Trump presidency, nullifying the vote for the president by millions of citizens. These alleged illegal and anticompetitive actions are an integral part of the so-called “resistance” to remove President Trump and install a leftist government over the 50 states.

The class action complain can be found here.

The complaint is first of its kind in the wake of mourning proof that social media giants are illegally restricting free speech of conservatives, and promoting free speech from leftist sources such as CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and others.

“Our inert and compromised Attorney General Jeff Sessions is unwilling to take strong action through his Antitrust Division as he has become the darling of the left given his refusal to prosecute Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, prominent Democrats and others who have allegedly committed crimes, while giving Robert Mueller carte blanche to proceed with his ‘witch hunt,” says Klayman.

“Freedom Watch seeks to right this discrimination against conservatives by social media giants. Our complaint asks for injunctive relief and over a billion dollars in damages, including punitive damages, pales in comparison to what the Commission of the European Union has already levied against such social media giants as Google for alleged ruthless tactics in stifling competition.”

Younk

A little over a month ago the world witnessed an unprecedented event – the Open Beta launch of the first community-based music label – Younk.com. The new platform connects artists, community, and music experts and aims to make the music industry more accessible and equitable for both artists and music enthusiasts. Younk, a decentralized community music platform using blockchain technology, is open to everyone, everywhere.

Younk’s mission is to establish the first community music label where artists gain recognition and support directly from the community in exchange for bonuses.

According to its founder, Andrey Dahkovskyy, Younk’s foremost goal is to modernize the music industry by facilitating direct artist access to the public. This ensures better compensation and community involvement in the funding of up-and-coming artists. Music fans also benefit through a unique opportunity to support their favorite artists and become co-producers of the artist’s tracks and earn YNK Bucks – internal currency of Younk ecosystem. YNK is an instrument that may be used to fund a Hit, get bonuses and purchase merchandise, services and goods on the Younk platform.

Don Grierson, the legendary music industry executive and Younk co-founder shared the platform’s vision as an accessible global marketplace where artists and HitHunting music enthusiasts can connect and support each other while mutually benefiting from the synergy and compounded contribution of the community – whether from a creative point or business wise. “We are entering a new era of making a Hit,” said Mr. Grierson, “the Younk platform is here to make it happen. In almost no time you will be able to listen to a tune that has been supported and directly funded by a community – by active listeners and those who want to make a change in the music industry. Our platform is open to Artists from all over the world, even if they’re not professional musicians. Everyone has a chance now to upload his or her original tune onto the platform and compete with other artists for community support and, further down the road, for their own place on some of the top music charts in the world.”

Unlike regular crowdfunding, which is called Hit Funding in Younk terminology, the new platform gives artists an opportunity to receive first-hand guidance from the professional music experts. It also provides the music fan community the option to be actively involved in creating music charts, to vote, and become co-producers of the the tracks they fund which may become Hits later. All of this helps us all make better music together.

The platform is designed to be user friendly. The process looks like this: an artist uploads a track; the community listens and votes, three tracks go to Hit Funding (two most voted on by the community and one selected by the experts) where YNK Bucks are used to support the community’s favorite tracks. The ones that reach a certain amount of YNK Bucks – soft cap – are then professionally produced by music industry experts. Once the final creative product is

released it gets promoted on approximately 150 digital music platforms. When a track generates revenue, artists receive royalty share in real money equivalent and the track supporters in YNK Bucks equivalent.

By employing innovative technology, Younk provides advanced features and allows for the transparent and decentralized distribution of royalty shares to artists through blockchain’s smart contracts.

“So far, Younk has 5 tracks in the production stage,” said Andrey Dakhovskyy, “ Every day we receive positive feedback from people in the music industry and beyond. This means we’re on the right track. Our platform opens up endless opportunities for both artists and fans – they can create better music together and this is awesome! Welcome to the universe of Younk!”
