• Search or buy activity trigger ad-serving.
• Conversion moments on mobile are a
mere few seconds.
• Retargeting hell.
Re Pre-targeting is fundamental to mobile conversion
Bid on users that have left the session
High conversion at low cost
Can’t get the real-time aspect right
Trying to convert users after the facts
doesn’t work on mobile
Big data spray and pray approach
Bid on users before they enter a session
Heavily rely on behavioral algorithmic
processing of contextual data, to better
estimate a conversion moment
Emerging out of recommender systems
and contextual computing
Small data precision targeting
Traditional versus full context-awareness
Online advertising: based on explicit
signals, expressed by humans.
Mobile advertising: based on implicit
signals, learned by machines.
Richer, real-time and accurate

Some fundamental challenges
Engaging for conversion on a mobile device?
Using stale data to understand fleeting moments?
Using explicitly entered data from users?
Some groundbreaking opportunities

Context-awareness leaps beyond location
Mobile users live in the now, man!
A smart-phone is an impulse device that captures the present

Sensors as building blocks for attribution data
Sensors are a device’s equivalent to possessing human-like sensing
capabilities and allow to sense and understand contextual cues.
Automatic gender detection, through walking patterns
Mood detection, through mobile handling
Sound source detection (gyroscope sampling)
Activity detection (walking, running, sitting, …)
Automatic in- versus outdoor detection
Mood detection, through heart rate and oxygen level detection
It’s a service layer
Access through SDK and API
Handling > 1 million requests per second
Ambient sensing technology (no input needed)

Privacy as a trading function
The more permissions are required, more added value is expected from the mobile app!
The type and quality (“value”) of a mobile app, not quantity, determines the ad estate value!
