New Research From Return Path Shows Sender Reputation and Email Deliverability Are Tightly LinkedEmail data solutions provider Return Path released its 2019 Sender Score Benchmark. Using comprehensive data from Sender Score and Return Path’s Reputation Network, this annual report provides expert analysis and insights on how reputation impacts inbox placement for commercial email senders.“Sender reputation offers unique insight into the source of each email, making it a key factor in those filtering decisions.”Based on analysis of more than 4 trillion email messages, The 2019 Sender Score Benchmark reveals that highly reputable email marketers are far more likely to reach their intended audience than peers with lower reputation scores. For example, senders scoring 91-100 (the best possible reputation score) had 91 percent of their messages delivered. This figure drops to 71 percent for senders scoring 81-90, and 44 percent for senders scoring 71-80.“Email remains the marketer’s go-to channel. But if email doesn’t reach the inbox, brands lose the opportunity to connect with customers and ultimately make a sale—so every message counts,” said Tom Sather, senior director of research at Return Path. “Since the initial Sender Score Benchmark Report in 2012, our research has consistently shown a clear link between reputation and deliverability. That’s why monitoring your reputation and maintaining it at the highest level possible is critical to email marketing success.”Marketing Technology News: PepsiCo Foodservice Unveils New Digital Lab to Help Restaurants Thrive In The Evolving Digital MarketplaceSpam complaints are one important factor used by mailbox providers in determining which messages are unwanted and should be filtered to the junk folder. Not surprisingly, there is also a strong correlation between spam complaints and sender reputation. While year-over-year spam complaints were higher across the board, senders scoring 91-100 had an average complaint rate of just 0.9 percent. For senders scoring 81-90, this metric jumped to 4.7 percent—more than five times higher than the best senders.“Mailbox providers face competition just like any other business, so they are constantly improving their filtering algorithms to create a better inbox experience for their users,” continued Sather. “Sender reputation offers unique insight into the source of each email, making it a key factor in those filtering decisions.”Marketing Technology News: Motionloft named a 2019 Gartner “Cool Vendor” in Location Services and ApplicationsThe overall quality of email has increased dramatically since Return Path’s first Sender Score Benchmark Report. In 2012, that report found that 60 percent of all email was sent by the least reputable senders—those with a Sender Score of 10 or less—while the best senders accounted for just six percent of total volume. Today, 42 percent of email comes from top senders, while email from the least reputable senders is down to just 16 percent. This shift can be attributed to the evolution of filtering technology and an increased focus on sender reputation at the mailbox provider level, all of which has made it more difficult—and far less profitable—for spammers to deliver their messages.Marketing Technology News: Verasity Announces Integration with YouTube For Highly Reputable Senders, 91 Percent of Emails Reach Their Intended Audience—Compared to 70 Percent or Less for All Other Senders PRNewswireMay 23, 2019, 5:09 pmMay 23, 2019 Email Data SolutionsMarketing TechnologyNewsReputation Networkreturn pathSender ScoreSender Score Benchmark Previous ArticleMediafly Unveils New Sales Enablement Platform Experience for the Future of Evolved SellingNext ArticleSurvey: 96% of Enterprises Encounter Training Data Quality and Labeling Challenges in Machine Learning Projects
Tell us about your role and the team/technology you handle at Verto Analytics.I am our Head of Custom Research, responsible for delivering high-quality data and insights to our clients, some of which like Google are among the biggest technology companies in the world. I am responsible for using our data assets, methodology, panels, to create insights and research to answer our customers’ business questions.Why are B2B marketing teams steadily moving toward Applied Data Science for Sales and Marketing initiatives?Traditionally this used to be very F2F-driven, all about relationships and real people talking to each other. However, in today’s digital world an increasing share of B2B decisions and investments are done online which leads to the marketing and sales focus to also pivot to micro-targeting using online clickstream data to understand who is a possible consumer thereby making marketing spend more efficient and targeted. In order to accomplish this, Data Science and Engineering are key to synthesize that information from large volumes of data. For example what actions/pathing indicate that someone is in-market for a B2B product?What is the current definition of Mobile Customer Experience? How is it different from desktop CX?We define mobile customer experience to be the result of the user’s activities and engagement, interaction and its smoothness, with mobile devices and digital services through these devices, as opposed to the use of similar assets but on the big screen computer-type devices. Increasingly there is a shift of online purchasing and decision making to Mobile devices as User Experiences on these devices are becoming more efficient and seamless.Tell us more about the changing nature of Digital Experiences and how it impacts experience delivered through the Mobile Marketing campaigns?Today’s digital campaigns, and definitely the capabilities brought on by mobile, are enormous. The biggest differences are in the fact that one can reach the individual consumer, on a one-by-one basis (mobile devices are not shared), all the time and everywhere, at the point of context and user attention – using for example locations and other such contextual variables based on online clickstream data are integrated parts of the campaign delivery and targeting.How have the customer’s expectations evolved in the last 2-3 years when it comes to interacting with brands over Mobile devices? Do you have some specific data related to this evolution of customer preference?The expectations of customers have changed significantly. Back in the day, it was thought that mobiles are yet another screen or device to use in targeting people. Today’s brands expect more native and sophisticated use of the unique characteristics of mobile devices (see above), and increasingly want to make sure the role of mobile advertising in the overall mix is well thought and optimized.We have data to quantify this as well given the longitudinal nature of the panel and can compare if panelists are more/less active on their Mobile devices compared to a year or more ago.Tell us about the three major takeaways from your recent report on Mobile data. How can marketing team better leverage your report findings to understand consumer behavior?The report’s major takeways are less actionable than they are predictive of several key possible changes in mobile.Consumer Attention at Unlock Will Become “a Thing”: The report begins to peel back and inspect the first moments of consumer attention on mobile. The findings certainly support that those first moments done right positively impact companies, influencing engagement, content consumption and revenues. So we think that this topic will get greater attention from brands, publishers, ad tech, carriers, smartphone OEMs and more.Research Must Continue to Evolve: The findings create as many questions as they answer. Given the potential impact on so many mobile stakeholders, we certainly expect this to be the first, but not the last, set of insights on this topic.Smartphones Will Change: What is certainly clear, is that our findings support that our “smart”phones could, would and ultimately will be smarter when they do a better job of more frictionlessly delivering the content and apps a consumer may want to use. There are many ways this might be done. Many will be tried, and Verto looks forward to trying to understand how well they work.How do you see Big Data and Customer Intelligence coming together to solve identity-related issues?We believe the fact that we have opt-in based datasets and services, and aggregators and intermediaries like Liveramp which make it possible to do data deals and overlaps, with anonymous matching, respecting all the local laws.Tell us about the various steps of the AI-powered Mobile Marketing journeys. How do consumers from different global locations interact with advertisements and marketing campaigns?There are lots of differences how different cultures react to contextual and more intelligent advertising. For example, Europeans tend to be more conservative with privacy, while Asians and Americans are more receptive to intelligent and contextual targeting.What are the different scenarios AI could be applied to in Marketing, Sales and Customer Service?There are many. We see that continuous optimization and on-the-fly adjustment of campaign creatives and targeting is one area where more intelligent use of return-path data and feedback loops could pose a big opportunity for AI (no static campaigns), the big opportunity is to provide real-time support via bots, which we have seen increasing in use lately.How do you build analytics around Cloud and Enterprise Mobility platforms?We are very customer-driven, so we have work flows and teams who understand and talk with customers about their needs, and we have our HQ-driven development tracks in which they implement these features into our cloud-based platform – productizing the solutions so that they are available to a high number of customers.Tell us about your customer experience products. How can MarTech customers benefit from your AI/ML products at Verto Analytics?Our single source approach (telemetry data on both PC and Mobile for the same user and ability to survey those users) enables us to get in-depth information into the consumer mindset and actions.We start with business questions, and using our methodology my team and I would propose customized solutions using both telemetry and attitudinal data to address our clients’ business problems.What is the current state of machine learning and AI for digital transformation?There appears to be a lot of hype but it’s unclear how effective the results are. Technologies and algorithms are there, but we still need to make sure the data that goes as an input is of high quality, and there is transparency and better ROI measurement especially on the ad targeting/segmentation front.How much of this state is influenced by the maturity of Data Science and Machine Learning algorithms?The algorithms and tools themselves are mature however as mentioned above the output/quality is dependent on what goes in. For example, a lot of players claim to be able to do advanced targeting using look alike modelling but is the input of the best quality? Is the output being effectively measured? Theses are questions business leaders need to consider beyond the maturity of Data Science Tools and algorithms.What are the major pain points for Data Analysts and Engineers in building/ scaling Analytics for relevant customer experience?It is always the extent of customization. Companies like us are interested in solving problems, but for us to do our work well and maximize the value-added, we need to be able to map similar problems across many customers so that we can scale our solutions more effectively.How do you work with AI/ Machine Learning at Verto Analytics?We have people with strong skillsets in this area, and apply machine learning in projects and use cases whenever it makes sense – not because it is a “cool thing to do”. For example, segmentation and clustering similar users is a common use case.

Image Credit: khlungcenter / Shutterstock By Dr. Ananya Mandal, MDNov 25 2018A new study has tried to assess the genetic variants among mosquitoes that make them more susceptible to spreading deadly viral diseases such as dengue, yellow fever, Zika and chikungunya and more resistant to insecticides that are used to kill them.The study titled, ‘Improved reference genome of Aedes aegypti informs arbovirus vector control’, by researchers from seven countries, including Australia’s QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, has mapped the genetic make-up of these insects which could be ground breaking in vector control. The team was looking at the genomes of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes that carry viruses like Zika and dengue. They noted that some newly discovered genes could make them resistant to insecticides.Modification of these resistant genes may help stop the mosquitoes from spreading disease, the researchers hope. Dr. Gordana Rasic, one of the researchers said, “One of the key things that we want to achieve is to modify these mosquitoes in a way that will help control them.” They looked at “physical and cytogenetic maps of the mosquitoes to see how these mosquitoes differed in their preference for human hosts for biting as well as how it alters their egg laying sites. They noted that there is a specific locus called the M locus on the mosquito genome where there is a variation in the glutathione S-transferase genes or the GST gene that is important for resistance to insecticides.Related StoriesDoes genetic testing affect psychosocial health?Gene modulation goes wireless hacking the “boss gene”Study: Causes of anorexia are likely metabolic and psychologicalThese GST genes are actually responsible for coding for proteins that detoxify and excrete the insecticides that are used to kill the mosquitoes. When modified these GST genes help the mosquitoes develop a resistance to the insecticides used against them and this makes the chemical ineffective against the pests.A look at these genes of the AaegL5 genome would help interventional strategies for vector control in controlling mosquitoes that carry the dengue virus and the Zika virus.The authors write, “high-quality genome assembly and annotation described here will enable major advances in mosquito biology.”The team also found variants of “chemosensory ionotropic receptors” among the mosquitoes. These connect the attraction of the mosquitoes to certain smells and tastes present on human skin that make them more prone to mosquito bites.The authors state in their work that this could provide clues to developing “novel mosquito repellents. ‘Sterile Insect Technique’ and ‘Incompatible Insect Technique’” that could help reduce mosquito populations. Genetic modification of the male mosquitoes could help alter the genes of the progeny is ways so that they fail to transmit the infection.The authors sign off that better understanding of the genetics of mosquitoes could “facilitate genetic control of mosquitoes that infect many hundreds of millions of people with arboviruses every year.”Mosquito bites are known to spread several life-threatening diseases including malaria, dengue, chikungunya, zika etc.Zika alone affects around 86 countries and regions around the world and can affect pregnant mothers and severely harm the unborn babies.Dengue too is a viral infection carried by mosquitoes that causes deadly hemorrhagic fever or fever along with very low platelet counts that can cause spontaneous bleeding.Malaria is a parasitic infection that still manages to kill hundreds of thousands around the world.
Source:https://www.ucr.edu/ Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Feb 6 2019Astronomers at the University of California, Riverside, have teamed with teachers at the California School for the Deaf, Riverside, or CSDR, to design an astronomy workshop for students with hearing loss that can be easily used in classrooms, museums, fairs, and other public events.The workshop utilized a sound stage that allowed the CSDR students to “feel” vibrations from rockets, stars, galaxies, supernovae, and even remnants of the Big Bang itself. The members of the team have made their materials public and written up their experiences to help teachers and other educators worldwide to similarly engage the deaf community in STEM activities.Since 2015, Gillian Wilson, senior associate vice chancellor for research and economic development and a professor of physics and astronomy at UCR, and Mario De Leo-Winkler, director of the National System of Researchers of Mexico and a former postdoctoral scholar at UCR, have developed astronomy outreach activities – astronomy photography competitions, traveling astronomy exhibitions, K12 workshops, interdisciplinary honors thesis projects, hands-on undergraduate astrophotography – that have touched 40,000 people.They have worked closely with CSDR teachers before, ensuring American Sign Language, or ASL, at public astronomy events, but had never developed an activity targeted for the deaf community.Around 360 million people worldwide suffer from hearing loss. In the United States, about 11 million citizens are functionally deaf or report some trouble hearing. The city of Riverside contains a large concentration of deaf students because it is home to CSDR, the only public school for the deaf in Southern California.”Designers of informal STEM education and public outreach activities often overlook people with hearing loss,” De Leo-Winkler said. “For our workshop we decided to focus on astronomy -a gateway to science- because of the breathtaking imagery it offers, the big questions it tackles, and its increasingly interdisciplinary nature. We used storytelling, videos, and images in the workshop to bring meaning to the sounds of the universe — all of which made for a very engaging experience for the students.”Related StoriesTAU’s new Translational Medical Research Center acquires MILabs’ VECTor PET/SPECT/CTMalaria drug may help those with hereditary hearing loss finds studySmarter, more educated people get a cognitive ‘head start’, but aren’t protected from Alzheimer’s”The students clearly loved the experience,” said Wilson, “and that’s the whole point.”De Leo-Winkler and Wilson presented the workshop multiple times over three days at CSDR, using feedback from the teachers and students not only to better convey the scientific concepts, but also to improve the students’ experience. Their presentation took the students on a cosmic voyage: the students “traveled” from Earth, where thunderstorms were raging, to the sun, where they experienced a solar storm. The voyage continued to Jupiter, flew through the rings of Saturn, and continued on to stars Alpha Centauri A and B. The students flew past the Large Magellanic Cloud galaxy and encountered a supernovae explosion. The voyage ended by encountering the Cosmic Microwave Background, the radiation leftover from the Big Bang. Temperature variations in this radiation were sonified to allow the students to experience them as vibrations.”Deaf individuals have a more developed sense of touch than hearing people due to their brain ‘rewiring’ in a process called neuroplasticity,” De Leo-Winkler said. “We paid close attention to this when designing the workshop. The students sit on a special interlocking wooden floor and face a TV screen. When sounds are played, they are transmitted by the sound system onto the floorboard as vibrations. Meanwhile videos and images that provide information are displayed on the screen. We tell the story and an interpreter signs what we say in American Sign Language.”The workshop opens a new way of communicating cosmic phenomena, related to sound, to the deaf community, and opens the door for further developments in public outreach using vibrations to engage and excite students.”It was very important to us to make our materials publicly accessible,” Wilson said. “There are dozens of these sound stages in the U.S. alone. Our workshop could easily be adapted to include other astronomical phenomena or to focus on another scientific discipline. I hope knowing that this was such a positive experience for us will inspire others.”
Rolls-Royce no longer wishes to be a candidate to make the engine for a new midsize passenger jet proposed by US planemaker Boeing, the troubled British group said Thursday. Rolls-Royce flies into loss on Trent engine trouble Citation: Rolls-Royce pulls out of race to power future Boeing plane (2019, February 28) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-02-rolls-royce-power-future-boeing-plane.html Rolls-Royce posted a net loss last year as its Trent engines were hit by costly repairs Explore further © 2019 AFP Rolls gave the update alongside news that it had dived into a net loss last year as its Trent engines were hit by costly repairs and a decision by Boeing’s European rival Airbus to stop making the A380 jumbo.Rolls posted a loss after tax of £2.4 billion ($3.2 billion, 2.8 billion euros) for 2018 after a net profit of nearly £3.4 billion a year earlier, as the group also decided to axe thousands of jobs as part of vast restructuring at the group.”Rolls-Royce has decided to withdraw from the current competition to power Boeing’s proposed middle of the market—or New Midsize Airplane (NMA)—platform,” the British group said in a statement.”While we believe the platform complements Boeing’s existing product range, we are unable to commit to the proposed timetable to ensure we have a sufficiently mature product which supports Boeing’s ambition for the aircraft and satisfies our own internal requirements for technical maturity at entry into service,” it added.Chicago-based Boeing is looking at building an NMA, or single-aisle commercial jet for long-haul journeys, to fill a gap in the market—but concrete plans have yet to be announced.Rolls on Thursday said that costs linked to problems with its Trent 1000 engine that powers the Boeing Dreamliner were a higher-than-expected £790 million in 2018.The Trent 1000 has seen some parts wear quicker than expected, forcing Rolls to carry out expensive repairs.The UK engineering giant added that last year’s earnings were hit additionally by a charge of £186 million “following Airbus’ decision to close the A380 production line”.Rolls in 2018 also began axing 4,600 mainly British management roles to slash costs.The company based in the city of Derby, central England, is restructuring through to next year.Also in 2018, Rolls sold its loss-making commercial marine business to Norwegian industrial giant Kongsberg.The divestment enables the UK group to focus on its three core businesses, which comprise civil aerospace, defence and power systems.

Australian singer-songwriter Casey Donovan opened up again last night about the six years she thought she was involved in a relationship with a man she never met, someone called “Campbell”. We asked catfish why they trick people online—it’s not about money The Australian Idol winner told the Andrew Denton: Interview show, on Channel 7, how she was a victim of catfishing – a cruel hoax in which someone creates a false identity to play on the romantic emotions of a person by pretending to be someone they’re not, either online or, in Donovan’s case, over the phone.”Hope kept me there,” she told the program. “To think that no-one could actually do that to another human being and to think of all the shit I’d already encountered in my life, to be at that point and to […] just have everything fall apart, it really hurt.”Donovan has spoken about her case before and there are many others who have been catfished – just do a quick search of YouTube.There are some similarities between catfishing and online romance fraud, something I’ve been involved in studying for more than ten years.So is there anything we can do to avoid being deceived by both? They play with your heartMy research on romance fraud has focused on the use of online deception to destroy both the hearts and wallets of victims worldwide.Latest figures on romance fraud in Australia show victims lost more than A$24 million in 2018 cases reported to ScamWatch, run by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission. About A$19.5 million were loses reported by women.While catfishing arguably uses the same types of deception and manipulation as romance fraud, the ultimate end goal is different. Those who catfish others online usually don’t have a financial motive.Unfortunately, there are no known statistics on the prevalence of catfishing, so the extent of this type of victimisation is largely unknown. This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license. Read the original article. Explore further This same sense of emotional harm is evident in the case of those who are catfished. The same issues around acknowledgement of victimisation and reporting are consistent. Many victims likely do not ever realise they are involved in a relationship with someone who doesn’t exist or who has been lying to them. If they are aware, it is also likely that many do not report or disclose to family or friends. The level of embarrassment, shame and stigmatisation experienced by victims is likely to be similar. How it worksThe techniques used by catfish are similar in many ways to what we know about romance fraud.The same social engineering techniques, the same grooming process that seeks to develop trust and rapport with the victim. The same level of patience used by offenders to maintain the ruse for weeks, months, and even years in the case of Donovan. Nobody sets out to be a victim of online deception, whether it is catfishing or romance fraud. These perpetrators identify a weakness or vulnerability in a potential victim, and exploit this by whatever means necessary.Why do people catfish?There is limited research as to why individuals engage in online deception, across both catfishing and romance fraud. For romance fraud, there is a strong argument that offenders are motivated to defraud victims for financial reasons.There is also emerging links of romance fraud to global organised crime networks. But this does not hold for catfishing. Rather, the small amount of research that explores the reasons fuelling catfish activities, link to a perpetrator’s feelings of loneliness, low self-esteem, escapism, and a desire to explore their sexuality through a different persona.These are all focused on the offender themselves, rather than being concentrated on any victim characteristic. Given the extent of the harm incurred by online deception, it is imperative to gain a better understanding of the factors which motivate those behind both romance fraud and catfishing. How not to get caught in a scamOnline deception is difficult to guard against. How can you convince someone that the person they are in love with is not real?In the case of romance fraud, all prevention messages revolve around the inevitable request to send money. But in the case of catfishing, this message is redundant. But there are similar signs to look out for. A refusal to meet in person or sometimes to communicate via other social media platforms. Inconsistencies in the stories used by those who perpetrate these acts. A gut feeling that something is not quite right. On the US television documentary series Catfish, hosts Nev and Max use a range of techniques to try to find the real identities of those who are behind the online catfish.Sometimes, a simple reverse image search on pictures used by the catfish may provide answers. Ultimately, looking for love or friendship online comes with risk, in the same way that driving to work each day carries with it an understood level of risk.But we should not disengage from social media or communicating online. Instead, we need to take precautions to reduce the likelihood that we become victims to online deception, in the form of either catfishing or romance fraud.

Catfishing itself is not a crime. It is only the deception associated with it that can be classed as fraud, and is therefore criminal.A catfish capturedEarlier last month, Lydia Abdelmalek was found guilty in a Melbourne Court of stalking six people.Adbelmalek was also a catfish. In her case she took on the persona of Australian actor Lincoln Lewis to deceive several women online. The depth of her deception and the extent of her harassment and ongoing threatening behaviour to her victims tragically resulted in one of her victims taking her own life.Abdelmalek is to be sentenced in June.Victim violationThe sense of violation and betrayal is common across both romance fraud and catfishing. In romance fraud, it is termed the “double hit” of victimisation, whereby the emotional loss is actually more severe and traumatising than the financial loss itself.

Let there be no doubt that misadventures will be repelled with a punitive response,” he said.The rise of non-state actors and the readiness to use terror and other irregular methods of fighting have become a new norm, he said.Addition of cyber and space domain has changed the battlefield scenario, the Army chief noted.Rawat also asserted that no act of terror will go unpunished. “Surgical strikes post-Uri and Balakot (terror attacks) have amply demonstrated our political and military resolve against terror. Any act of terror will not go unpunished,” Rawat added.The army chief also said there has been no intrusion by the Chinese in Ladakh’s Demchok sector. “There is no intrusion,” Rawat said on the sidelines of an event.His statement came amidst reports of Chinese soldiers crossing the Line of Actual Control (LAC) last week after some Tibetans hoisted Tibetan flags on the occasion of Dalai Lama’s birthday on July 6.”Chinese come and patrol to their perceived Line of Actual Control…we try and prevent them. But at times there are celebrations that take place at the local levels. Celebrations were going on our side by our Tibetans in the Demchok sector. Based on that, some Chinese also came to see what was happening. But there has been no intrusions. Everything is normal,” the Army chief had said.READ | No intrusion by Chinese in Ladakh’s Demchok, says Army chief Bipin RawatWATCH | Army general exposes Pakistan’s lie on terrorFor the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
