Media strategy consultancy and technology business Audience Precision has announced that it is the first to sign with Amplified Intelligence Technologies to incorporate its new attention media planning tool, attentionTRACE Media Planner, as another intelligent layer in its strategy suite.
attentionTRACE Media Planner is a world first AI-based media planning tool using active ‘eyes-on-ad’ human attention data across digital, social and television for media planning. It has been designed and built on the premise that attention is the missing ‘relative quality’ layer in media planning.
Are Media announced last week it had become the first global publishing partner for attentionTRACE Media Planner.
It was developed by Amplified Intelligence Technologies, the media research and technology company founded by Dr Karen Nelson-Field who is also Professor of Media Innovation at The University of Adelaide.
Audience Precision becomes Amplified Intelligence’s first customer partner and the consultancy continues to lead the industry with media planning solutions.
Audience Precision global CEO, Haydon Bray (pictured top), said: “attentionTRACE is a very powerful quality measure of ‘attention’ for comparing video media platforms. We are looking at incorporating this as an additional layer on top of our DNA audience segments offering. Audience Precision is known for rewriting the rule book, and as thought leaders, we are working together to continually improve the impact, connection and attention of media budgets and to stay ahead of the curve. We’re excited to see what the combination of attentionTRACE and our proprietary tools can bring to our clients.”
Professor Nelson-Field said: “I am delighted that Audience Precision has signed up as our very first customer, globally, for the attentionTRACE Media Planner. They understand the current technical and structural flaws in the media ecosystem, which is why they were so quick to choose an attention-based media planner to inform truly effective media strategies for their clients.
“Traditional OTS tells us nothing of whether an ad has been viewed and attention has quickly risen to the surface as a hopeful metric to shine a light on effectiveness in our industry. It’s pretty straightforward, no attention means no ad impact. Collected human attention is a measure that transcends all other mediating variables like viewability and sound. This means that measuring human attention negates the need to separately measure the things that drive it.”
Audience Precision’s model is based on three key pillars: DNA, that has 60+ unique audience segments based on consumer lifestyle, psychographics and behavioural patterns, to find potential customers and what drives their purchasing behaviour and media consumption choices; Precise360 that builds media strategies four times faster than a standard agency approach to deliver precise targeting to potential customers; and Activation & Analytics that buys media and reports campaign performance against the DNA segments.
Audience Precision has the ability to measure digital, social and traditional media against any individual audience segment for the first time.
