In this presentation, attendees will learn the importance of online consumer discussions -- consumer-created content -- how it compares to traditional survey research and demonstrate through case studies why the human categorization of consumer discussion information is more reliable than the use of Artificial Intelligence.

BrandIntel will review lessons learned regarding the volatility (and impact) of Internet discussions, the importance of norms by market/subject matter and how companies can map the psychology of consumer perceptions. The presentation will conclude with a discussion on BrandIntel's future science, including an introduction on new key metrics and a framework of Sources of Influence/Product Attributes/Decisions critical to any company looking to better understand how to measure the impact of online discussions.
