Fyber Announces Partnership With Game of Whales to Enable Publishers to Get Real-time Holistic Ads & IAP LTV, Optimize Monetization and User Acquisition Budgets

SAN FRANCISCO, March 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Fyber (FSE: FBEN), a leading technology company creating solutions for smarter ad monetization, today announced it has partnered with Game of Whales, provider of an AI-driven monetization optimization platform. This will offer a first of its kind, transparent, accurate and holistic monetization solution that empowers app and game developers to have full view of user lifetime value (LTV) in order to optimize user acquisition budgets, as well as customize the user experience to drive retention and prevent churn.

Better, More Efficient User Acquisition Campaigns
Acquiring new users is a difficult and costly exercise for mobile app and game publishers. To drive ROI, publishers need a better understanding of their user-acquisition ROI. This partnership enables publishers to calculate user LTV based on the combination of in-app purchases (IAP) and ads revenue, and use that insight to model profitable users and optimize user acquisition campaigns to target the right users.

User-Specific Experience, Driven by Automation
Since the birth of digital advertising, publishers have sought to create tailor-made experiences for their users, both to maximize user retention and to drive overall yield. Until now, the goal of tailor-made experiences has been stymied by two major challenges. The first is data blind spots, also known as aggregated data inputs that makes it impossible to accurately measure revenue at the user level, making any ROI calculations highly unreliable, preventing publishers from segmenting users into cohorts, let alone treating them as individuals. The second is the lack of automated solutions that enable publishers to customize user experiences at scale.

Now, thanks to the partnership between Fyber and Game of Whales, publishers can tailor experiences to each and every individual user automatically at scale. By combining highly accurate user level advertising and in-app purchase revenue under one roof, and by applying machine learning to in-app behavioral segmentation as well as creating an appropriate app experience, the vision has become a reality.

Impression-Level Revenue Data
The Fyber / Game of Whales solution is unique in that it does not rely on samples or estimates to calculate individual user ad LTV. Thanks to Fyber FairBid, which allows all demand partners to purchase mobile in-app inventory programmatically, along with Fyber’s Impression-Level Revenue Data, Fyber can attribute each impression, along with the price paid, to the individual user engaging with the ad. This highly accurate, real-time data allows publishers to ascertain how much ad revenue they’ve gained from each user and use that insight to predict ad LTV.

Holistic LTV
Game of Whales is recognized as the industry leader in tracking verified, fraud-free in-app purchase (IAP) data, as well as segmenting users based on in-game behavior in order to create tailored experiences (e.g. withholding ads for users that are in high probability of becoming payers, or offering user-specific discounts on IAP or in-game items in order to improve conversion rates). Through this partnership, these capabilities are augmented by Fyber’s accurate ad revenue data, allowing publishers to calculate a holistic LTV at the user level.

Segment of One
In addition to accurate holistic LTV data and advanced user behavioral segmentation, the partnership provides a fully automated solution that makes decisions about the user experience. For example, it can decide to show specific offers to select users, or it can determine which users should see an ad.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Game of Whales so that together we can unlock the value of the segment of one. Our combined solution allows publishers to maximise yield and optimise the experience of each individual user, which is game changing. For the first time, they’re in full control of their destinies,” said Offer Yehudai, President at Fyber.

“We are excited to partner with Fyber, whose advanced programmatic bidding technology allows publishers to see a complete and precise LTV on a user level. In the last few years since the rise of the hyper-casual trend, the ads share in the total revenue pie has increased significantly and nowadays, even the top grossing companies are looking to monetise the 98% that don’t pay through IAP in a smart way without risking the existing revenues. While the tracking, attribution and optimisation of IAP have evolved significantly, ads revenue remained a “black box”. With this partnership, we deliver a cutting edge, holistic LTV optimization platform that takes into consideration both IAP and ads to assure the right action is taken for every specific user,” said Doron Kagan, Co-Founder and CEO at Game of Whales.

About Fyber
Fyber is a global technology company, developing a next generation monetization platform for mobile app publishers. Fyber combines proprietary technologies and expertise in mediation, RTB, video and audience segmentation to create holistic solutions that shape the future of the app economy. Fyber’s monetization SDK is directly integrated into over 10,000 mobile apps and the company’s platforms reach over 1.2 billion unique monthly users. Fyber has seven global offices in San Francisco, New York, London, Berlin, Tel Aviv, Beijing and Seoul. It is publicly traded on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the symbol FBEN.

About Game of Whales
Founded in 2016, Game of Whales, winner of “Best tools provider” award for 2019, develops a fully automated artificial intelligence-based system that micro-segment the users based on their in-game behavior, interacts with them accordingly and self-optimise, allowing mobile game developers to seamlessly increase their user’s lifetime value.

AI in the Global Sports Market by Technology, Applications, Sports Level, Sports Type, User Type, Use Case, Deployment, Region and Country (2019-2024)

DUBLIN, March 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The “Artificial Intelligence in Sports Market: AI in Sports by Technology, Applications, Sports Level (Olympic, Professional, College), Sports Type, User Type (Owner, Coach, Player, Spectator), Use Case, Deployment, Region and Country 2019-2024” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Research and Markets Logo

  • AI improves the value of cross-training by team role/position between 9 and 32 percent
  • Up to 65% of long-term cognitive dysfunction due to concussions is preventable through the use of AI
  • AI in sports will improve individual and team performance by an average of 17% and 28% respectively
  • Top benefits of AI in sports include performance improvement, injury prevention, and recruitment
  • AI will improve revenue, reduce operational costs, and improve valuations of professional sports teams

This is the only research available that focuses on Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the sports industry. AI in the sports market represents a substantial opportunity for operational improvements including efficiency and effectiveness enhancements that ultimately lead to substantive team game performance.

This provides an assessment of the technologies, companies, strategies and solutions involved in leveraging artificial intelligence in sports market. The report analyzes AI in the sports market by sports level, type of sport, user type, and deployment options.

The report provides AI in sports market sizing for the aforementioned as well as a forecast for AI in the sports market by region and country from 2019 to 2024. It is important to note that certain countries focus on very specific sports, so AI in sports will vary significantly on a country by country basis and not just by comparative population or per capita GDP.

Market Insights

Improving the overall efficiency and effectiveness of teams and individual athletes has big implications as sports-related activities and events have become a major industry in the last few decades. Professional sports in particular have become a big business with the asset value of major teams at well over $1 billion each, generating triple-digit millions in revenue annually.

For example, the New England Patriots (American) football team is valued at roughly $3.8 billion, and generates over $500 million in total revenue annually. With about $103 million in revenue due to gate receipts, it is clear that a large portion of professional sports teams rely on non-venue related revenue including sponsorship, media rights, and merchandising. With the level of financials involved in a given organization, AI in the sports market is a meaningful investment for most team owners.

Sports at the Olympic, professional, and collegiate levels has become very data-driven as decisions ranging from recruitment and training to strategy and in-game tactics rely upon statistics and a dynamic set of variables including personnel, game conditions, and scenarios. Would be Olympians depend on sponsors, trainers, and coaches for major funding and support.

Sponsorship is a multi-million investment for each athlete, underscoring the need to make the best decisions possible for sovereign nations and companies involved in deciding who will be developed with the intent of representing a country in a given sport and sporting event for the Olympics. Wise implementation of AI in the sports market represents a means of sponsoring countries, companies, and wealthy benefactors to maximize their investment in the best world athletes.

At the collegiate level, a great deal is at stake in terms of recruiting athletes to become professionals. There is also great importance for National Collegiate Athletic Association division IA teams who vie for various milestones such as winning seasons, division leadership, league championships, playoff appearances, and championships.

Much is at stake from an alumni goodwill perspective, which translates into donations for sporting programs, which funds university and college development. AI in the sports market at the collegiate level provides this type of indirect benefit as college sports programs must be careful to not step over the line in terms of rules regarding financial benefits to players.

Intelinair Adds Pat Arthur as Marketing Director to Support Expanding Sales of AgMRI

CHAMPAIGN, Ill., March 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Intelinair, Inc., today announced that Pat Arthur has joined its team as Director of Marketing to support the continued sales growth of its automated crop intelligence system, AgMRI.

“We’ve added Pat to help us accelerate the robust rate of sales growth we have been achieving with AgMRI,” said Al Eisaian, CEO and co-founder of Intelinair. “Farmers are buying AgMRI because it’s providing crop performance insight they can’t get anywhere else, and it’s empowering them to reliably make prioritized farming decisions and boost yields, income, and efficiency.

CAQH Develops Artificial Intelligence to Improve Provider Directory Accuracy

WASHINGTON, March 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — CAQH® has developed patent-pending artificial intelligence (AI) technology to identify incorrect healthcare provider data and improve the accuracy of directories without contacting the provider. Health plans can use the findings to improve data quality and decide which office locations and other information about a provider to publish in their directories.

CAQH Logo (PRNewsfoto/CAQH)

While the healthcare industry has long grappled with provider data quality issues, beginning in 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) began conducting annual reviews of Medicare Advantage online directories. Plans with high percentages of inaccurate directory data are subject to significant fines. CMS has determined that, in some cases, half of the information in directories may be inaccurate, with office locations being particularly problematic.  

“Until today, the best method to verify information has been to make phone calls to the provider, but that option is costly and ineffective,” said Atul Pathiyal, Senior Vice President, Product and Strategy at CAQH. “Applying our AI gives the industry a better, continuous way to address provider directory accuracy.”

The CAQH AI technology draws on information entered by 1.4 million providers in CAQH ProView® and integrates a wealth of data from other sources to train its AI model. Using machine learning, CAQH is continually improving the model’s identification of good and bad data.

By avoiding individual provider outreach when verifying basic information, such as whether a provider sees patients at a given office location, health plans can improve directory accuracy while reducing provider abrasion. Based on data gathered to date, CAQH believes that health plans can save up to $91 million annually, just from reducing provider outreach costs across the industry. The total savings due to data improvements are likely much higher.

Improving provider data accuracy, completeness and timeliness is a focus for CAQH, and AI is one example of how the organization uses leading-edge technology to address industry-wide challenges. In the future, CAQH plans to apply more machine learning, advanced analytics and AI technology to score additional data elements that commonly challenge the industry.

CAQH is the leader in creating initiatives to streamline the business of healthcare. Through collaboration and innovation, CAQH accelerates the transformation of business processes, delivering value to providers, patients and health plans. Visit www.caqh.org and follow us on Twitter: @caqh.

71% of U.S. Businesses Plan to Use More AI & ML in 2019

BROOMFIELD, Colo., March 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — New research from Webroot, the Smarter Cybersecurity® company, reveals that 71 percent of businesses surveyed in the United States plan to use more artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) in their cybersecurity tools this year, although over half (58%) aren’t sure what that technology really does.

Webroot logo. (PRNewsFoto/Webroot)

The global report titled, “Knowledge Gaps: AI and Machine Learning in Cybersecurity,” details that more businesses are leveraging AI/ML tools within cybersecurity, and the perceptions IT professionals have around said tools. Although over one-third (36%) of organizations experienced a damaging cyberattack within the last year, the majority is still extremely confident (83%) they have all the tools they need to successfully defend themselves against criminals using AI/ML-based threats.

While 71 percent of businesses plan to spend more budget on AI/ML tools in 2019, only 49 percent of IT professionals feel extremely comfortable using these tools. This presents a clear disconnect and supports the need for further education, or outsourced support from skilled experts, particularly when 86 percent of IT professionals agree that cybercriminals are also leveraging AI/ML in their attacks.

Explore the Results: Knowledge Gaps: AI and Machine Learning in Cybersecurity

Key Findings from U.S. Respondents:

  • 86% believe cybercriminals are using AI/ML to attack organizations
  • 76% do not care if their protection uses AI/ML as long as it keeps them safe from cybercriminals
  • Yet 70% say it is very important that cybersecurity advertising mention use of AI or ML
  • 71% of IT professionals report their business plans to use more AI/ML tools in 2019
  • Yet only 49% of IT professionals feel extremely comfortable using AI/ML tools

Key Quote:

Hal Lonas, CTO, Webroot
“AI and ML continue to present a troubling knowledge gap, particularly given the amount of confusing hype in the cybersecurity industry. A company cannot properly defend against advanced AI and ML attacks when less than half of its IT professionals are comfortable using the tools needed to defend against those attacks. To level the playing field, organizations need to partner with vendors that have the historical data and skilled staff required to deliver the highest level of efficacy and automation to their customers. And even though 70 percent of professionals in the survey say it’s very important that vendors mention the use of AI and ML in their advertising, advertisements should be validated by quality data.”

Survey Methodology
Survey respondents were provided by Branded Research Inc., which has an active proprietary global panel of over 2 million respondents. The survey was conducted by LEWIS between November 26 and December 5, 2018, and consisted of an online survey of 37 questions total, requiring approximately 10 minutes.

Imperium is solely focused on helping companies guarantee data integrity and comply with industry regulations. Survey responses were received from 400 full-time IT professionals at the IT director level and above; 200 of which were from the United States, and 200 from Japan. Respondents represented organizations that had 250 employees or more, and 87 percent were the primary decision makers for cybersecurity tools purchased within their organization. The overall margin of error was 5 percent at a 95 percent confidence interval.
