Generally, [for customers in the field of internet advertisement, like internet advertising integration agencies, VIYI’s central processing algorithm solutions helps them engage in more efficient data processing and management, which culminates in more effective programmed advertising and dynamic content optimization with the goal to improve consumer conversion rate, which means the rate at which individuals who have seen an advertisement turn into a user or purchaser of the service or items contemplated by the advertisement.
VIYI’s proprietary central processing algorithm solutions improve upon the processes by which VIYI’s customers are able to make one of their most crucial business decisions — the effective placement of advertisements. In sum, VIYI’s customers provide advertisement materials in the form of 3D models or images, which VIYI processes in its back servers into more detailed data such as color key and fusion image; VIYI then purchases advertisement placement opportunities from ad traffic wholesalers and begins analyzing multimedia sources hosted on such traffic wholesalers with VIYI’s image recognition software to extract scenario data from such videos to determine data points such as the location, time, space and other useful information. At the same time, VIYI is also processing internet users’ data to achieve effective and precise placement of advertisements.
The diagram below illustrates the key steps of providing solutions to VIYI’s digital marketing customers:
VIYI first obtains advertisement placement opportunities from internet traffic wholesalers. VIYI then uses its image recognition software to perform scenario-based classification of such videos to determine their location, time, space, and other relevant information to identify the most appropriate places to insert VIYI’s customers’ advertisements. With such data, VIYI establishes dynamic information databases in relation to these multimedia sources with technology such as Relational Database Service (RDS) to be further processed at VIYI’s disposal. At the same time, VIYI’s back servers are communicating with these traffic wholesaler’s servers to collect user behavioral data, which VIYI then processes with its crowd-based socio-cognitive systems (SCS) for the purpose of effectively placing VIYI’s customer’s advertisement through a process of dynamic content optimization (DCO), with the aim of improving VIYI’s customers’ consumer conversion rate.
In sum, VIYI provides effective advertising solutions for digital marketers by optimizing advertising content and precisely matching content with suitable consumers by processing a massive amount of data through efficient automation. Eligible consumers are selected in accordance with their demographics and personal preferences, which VIYI’s central processing algorithm service is able to analyze for the purpose of maximizing the internet advertisement effect.
VIYI ensures high-quality engineering architecture for VIYI’s proprietary central processing algorithms, which means VIYI’s services are being provided at low latencies while being highly scalable. VIYI is capable of powerful real-time transcoding with stable, smooth, and low latency, which provides VIYI’s customers valuable insights into consumer behavior.
The combined entity will be named MicroAlgo Inc. when the transaction closes, which is expected by the end of the third quarter of this year.
