NEW YORK: Visual-AI company, VISUA, has launched a new ad detection feature that can accurately identify and provide specialised intelligence on visual media. The new offering will enable ad and media monitoring companies to provide greater analysis of national and geographically targeted ad campaigns. It will provide leading businesses with insights into competitor ad spend through near real-time intelligence, meaning companies can adapt their advertising strategies faster than ever before.

New York-based company VISUA revealed the new feature following recent research which revealed 40% of brands planned to increase their competitive intelligence budget.

  • Ad format detection: This allows key details to be shared with ad monitoring companies in terms of format and dimensions of the ads, and are able to classify ads as banners, skyscrapers, etc.
  • Ad content detection: This enables VISUA to categorize the selected ad against 11,000 labels. This shares specifics on what main category that ad is for, and in-depth details such as gender, age, animals and a wide array of objects present in the ad.
  • Logo detection: Critically, the new feature is able to detect an ad whether the ad has a visible logo or not. However, where a logo is present VISUA is then able to identify which company/brand the ad relates to.Brand advertising - An old couple in the digital age
