September 19, 2017
transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda; TSE First Section: 9715; hereafter, transcosmos) and its AI laboratory, “Communication Science Lab” developed its unique system, “AI Copywriter KOTOBA TAKUMI (a master craftsman of words)” (beta version) which helps advertisers create copies for text ads with a focus on in-feed ads. The official service is due out in spring 2018.
▲In-feed advertising copy written by “AI Copywriter KOTOBA TAKUMI” (beta version)
With this system, ad planners need only enter “what they want to appeal”, then “AI Copywriter KOTOBA TAKUMI” (beta version) will generate various ideas on “ways to appeal” by utilizing data science such as machine learning and natural language processing (NLP). The system creates a massive volume of copies using a variety of expressions for in-feed advertising, based on conditions of target audiences set by ad planners and USP (Unique Selling Proposition) of the target product. After creating various options, the system then recommends the most adequate copy to deliver the highest performance, based on past data records.
An automated copywriter for text advertising – A solution for a pressing challenge facing advertisers
The online advertising market has achieved rapid growth, with a remarkable expansion in the in-feed advertising market which includes social media such as LINE, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, curation media, and news apps; the expansion of the market is expected to continue. Consequently, the volume of ads and their market circulation is increasing than ever before. As a result, there is a growing demand for copywriters and creative staff to swiftly create various kinds of creative contents, in order to effectively deliver the appropriate advertising message to the right targets to satisfy their needs and lifestyles. In Japanese society where domestic labor shortage and overwork have become the focus of public attention, copywriters and creative staff are overwhelmed by ever daunting workloads. It has become inevitable to utilize AI as well as automate the production process in the text advertising field in order to overcome these challenges.
Potential and future plans for “AI Copywriter KOTOBA TAKUMI” (beta version)
With “AI Copywriter KOTOBA TAKUMI” (beta version), advertisers will be able to auto-create a massive volume of copies that boost the performance of ads, without the restriction of resources in production sites. transcosmos will conduct pilot operations for clients who require mass production of copies aimed at boosting engagement with their customers by improving the accuracy and efficiency of web marketing operations that the company offers its clients. transcosmos continues to upgrade its system in order to create more effective advertising copies for each specific media and industry by gaining insights from external research institutes through “Donated Fund Laboratory Global Consumer Intelligence (GCI)”, organized by the associate professor at the School of Engineering at University of Tokyo, where transcosmos takes part in its university-industry collaboration efforts.
