Audience Predict will forecast future program performance.
Gracenote, the content solutions division of marketing measurement firm Nielsen, has unveiled a new tool, Audience Predict, which will deliver predictive insights into future entertainment programming performance. The aim is to support strategic decision-making by content owners and distributors.
Audience Predict will apply machine learning to data from two sources: Gracenote’s content metadata and Nielsen’s audience measurement data. It will not only forecast size of audience, reach and likely minutes spent viewing, but will also predict the composition of the audience — in other words who will watch. Content owners and distributors will be able to make informed decisions on platforms for their content and also deliver a value proposition to ad buyers.
Why we care. Is it time to say TV has caught up with digital? Streaming TV — linear TV too — are getting smarter. And this is important as the mass audience for TV programming becomes increasingly fragmented. There may be a few network shows left with large audiences advertisers can easily understand. Outside that dwindling oasis, we have countless shows on countless channels attracting niche but valuable audiences. Understanding those audiences would seem to be very important.
