Content review agency adds AI to service

Content optimization agency Realeyes has announced it has added artificial intelligence to its service. The AI is added to its consultants reviewing facial expressions of those watching brand advertising, to see if the end-user is engaged, happy or sad, instead of just playing the video and present for its completion.

From the release: “The average human attention span now down to just 8 seconds, meaning brands need all the help they can get to be heard above the din of an increasingly noisy internet. Up to now, it’s been difficult to measure that attention, with brands having to rely on metrics such as completion rates, which simply don’t give the full picture. Just because someone plays a video until the end, it doesn’t mean they were paying attention to the content,” said Mihkel Jäätma, CEO and co-founder of Realeyes.
