Machines can now understand emotions: using biometric AI to understand your audience

Why are we more likely to eat an unhealthy cookie if it has a cute face iced on it? The truth is that the vast majority of decision making is done on an automatic, subconscious and emotional level. Drawing on behaviour science, Jing will discuss the animal brain versus the conscious brain, and how our subconscious is affected by the environment.

Retaining relevancy in retail and new e-commerce models

Europe is the birthplace to many of the most iconic and historic fashion brands. Meanwhile, technology has enabled the emergence of fast fashion and ecommerce solutions like Stitchfix and Birchbox and facilitated their dominance in wallet and market share. If fashion and beauty brands come in and out of being “en vogue” as often as the runway trends themselves, how can retail technologies (ie measurement and data solutions) enable marketers in retail and fashion to remain relevant and top of mind with luxury shoppers of today and tomorrow?

Challenger brands

The demonstrable growth of challenger brands in the beauty industry begged the question - can a heritage brand maintain its relevance in a rapidly changing market? Through proprietary research, we set out to quantify the relationship between challenger behaviours and purchase intent, and whether an established brand has the right to play in this space.
