Pixoneye aims to redefine personalised marketing beyond the usual age, gender, location stuff. It does this using artificial intelligence and image understanding, anonymously analysing the image gallery on consumers’ phones to create digital profiles, predict future engagements, and create the most personalised recommendations possible.
The future is here. We’ve seen this kind of thing in science fiction for a while now: billboards and other advertising displays showing personalised advertisements to customers as they pass by, because they are watching our every move! Facial recognition allows the advertising platform to identify approximate age, race, and gender, as well as remembering previous customers.
