CTAM Think March 2019 Recap

Consumer Attention Is The New Currency In A World Of Machines

By 2022 more than half of American homes will have a smart speaker.  Machines handle a staggering number of tasks and increasingly make numerous everyday decisions for us, from the products we buy, and how we decide what to watch or where to eat, to how we connect and socialize with others. 

The influence of these devices on content discovery and customer experiences are shaping the way the industry’s products and services impact consumers.
