AI's breakthroughs, particularly generative AI, are reshaping various fields, from art and music to natural language processing (NLP). This technology propels many tools we use every day, including chatbots and recommendation systems. With the potential to add trillions of dollars to the global economy, it's clear we’re only at the beginning of this transformative era of AI.
Can the power of AI, specifically operational machine learning, elevate the marketing landscape? How does this relate to mobile app marketing? Well, consider this: As machine learning and AI continue to weave themselves into our daily lives and global business operations, isn't it an opportune time to explore how cutting-edge technologies like ML can fuel business growth and carve out a unique space in the competitive app marketing landscape?
Over the past three decades, digital advertising evolved from basic website placements to sophisticated, personalized ads, courtesy of advanced ML technology — and this shift propelled walled garden platforms like YouTube and Amazon into the advertising forefront. By employing ML for ad placements and product recommendations, walled gardens can analyze user data to enhance ad relevance and engagement, which significantly bolsters ad monetization.
The scope of digital advertising is expanding, and for the first time, operational machine learning is available outside of walled gardens. With two-thirds of app usage occurring on the Open Internet, a substantial fraction of digital ad spending remains untapped.
While 'machine learning' has become quite a buzzword (much like 'generative AI'), it's important to understand that not all ML is created equal. 'Operational machine learning' refers to models applied in real-time operations and are fully autonomous in decision-making, speed, scale, and adaptability, unlike standard machine learning, which makes predictions based on historical data and often relies on pre-programmed linear models that require manual inputs.
Operational ML is particularly useful in digital advertising where real-time decision-making is crucial — like deciding which ads to serve to which users. Standard ML models need manual retraining to fit new criteria and use cases, making scale challenging. Operational ML, on the other hand, constantly ingests and acts on the most recent data points, adapting in real-time to a quickly evolving advertising landscape. Most companies venturing into ML technology need to catch these key characteristics. That's why thoroughly evaluating your marketing channels is important to ensure you're getting the right machine learning.
