IBM has released its “Advertising Accelerator with Watson,” a predictive ad solution that uses AI to determine which creative elements will deliver the best engagement for specific audiences and help identify new audience segmentation opportunities. It can also analyze campaign results based on the creative and audience perspective.
Why we care
IBM’s latest AI-powered solution, built on the Watson platform, has been designed to deliver hyper-personalized ad creative. Having the ability to deliver creative that resonates with specific audiences based on a predictive model could eliminate much of the guess work and testing that comes with determining which creative elements will drive the most engagement.
“Matching creative iteration with audience segment is the next step in campaign optimization,” said Lending Tree’s Senior Director of Marketing Josh Eldridge. Lending Tree and Potential Energy Coalition are two brands that have confirmed they will be implementing a beta of IBM’s Advertising Accelerator.
