Gmail to Fine Tune Ads Using Priority Inbox Technology


first_imgRelated Posts Google has begun notifying users of its email system, Gmail, that “better ads” are on the way. Being sure to note that “ads in Gmail are fully automated” and that “no humans read your messages,” the company announced that it will be using a process similar to that of Priority Inbox to bring users fewer, but more relevant, advertisements.Can the company pull off more precise advertising without creeping out its user base?Ads, of course, are no new thing to the email provider, but users may not be too keen on receiving more personalized advertising. The company clearly states in its privacy policy that it is careful about the advertising it shows. “To ensure a quality user experience for all Gmail users, we avoid showing ads reflecting sensitive or inappropriate content by only showing ads that have been classified as ‘Family-Safe,’” reads the policy. “We also avoid targeting ads to messages about catastrophic events or tragedies.”Google says that it plans on better targeting advertising not only to provide a better experience, but to show “fewer irrelevant ads” and provide “offers and coupons for your local area.” How? With the same technology it uses to categorize emails in your Priority Inbox.With features like Priority Inbox, we’ve been working hard to help sort through the ‘bacn‘ in your messages — the unimportant messages that get in your way. Soon we’re going to try a similar approach to ads: using some of the same signals that help predict which messages are likely to be important to you, Gmail will better predict which ads may be useful to you. For example, if you’ve recently received a lot of messages about photography or cameras, a deal from a local camera store might be interesting. On the other hand if you’ve reported these messages as spam, you probably don’t want to see that deal.Google told TechCrunch’s Jason Kincaid, who first noticed the feature, that it would be notifying users over coming days  about the feature but that personalized ads won’t go live for about a month. Users who don’t want any other eyes – computer or not – to be pouring over their emails will have to ability to opt out. Will you keep the advertising machine running or will you opt out? (And did you know that you already could opt out of Gmail ads?)

Messi helps Barcelona beat Lyon to reach Champions League quarters

It leads the Spanish league and has reached the final of the Copa del Rey.In Wednesday’s other game, Sadio Mane scored twice as Liverpool advanced with a 3-1 win at Bayern Munich.The quarterfinal draw is on Friday.Barcelona was on the front foot from the start and Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes did well to swat away Messi’s first shot on goal shortly after kickoff.ADVERTISEMENT But he could only watch hopelessly while prone on the turf when Messi floated his penalty kick past, using the “Panenka” style scoop after the goalie has moved too early.Messi’s 17th-minute spot kick was thanks to Suarez, who deftly sought and found contact with sliding defender Jason Denayer in the area to draw a foul.Suarez continued to torment Lyon*s backline with his runs into the box. A quick switch of the ball from his left boot to his right was enough for Suarez to juke past Fernando Marcal and draw in Lopes before he passed for Coutinho to tap home on the half-hour mark.Lopes had already been shaken up in a collision with Coutinho that forced play to be stopped for around five minutes before he tried to go on playing. But Lopes finally asked to be substituted in the 34th.Backup Mathieu Gorgelin denied Messi from close range before halftime, and Marcal hustled back to clear Messi’s chipped shot before it crossed the line just after the restart.Lyon grabbed a lifeline when a corner kick was knocked on by three players— including two from Barcelona— before Tousart controlled the ball with his chest and fired past Marc-Andre ter Stegen.Nabil Fekir then fired high as Lyon’s pressure worried Barcelona for the first time.Seeing his team’s control of the match in danger, Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde sent on Dembele and Arturo Vidal to try and equal Lyon in speed and muscle.The move worked.Messi made the most of the back-and-forth second half when he received the ball alone while charging toward the area. He put the ball on his left foot to draw two defenders the wrong way, before he cut back to his right and poked the ball under Gorgelin.

In a media release, the question is asked if the tax payers are footing this bill… the main queries come from Michael Misick, the former Premier and McCallister Hanchell, the former Minister for Lands, who are both on trial. Mr. Misick: “I’d like to know how much this is costing, which taxpayers are paying for it and who is running this operation to make unproven allegations against the defendants in the press?”It is true, this is the most information the media has had since Helen Garlick was hired by the UK for this case; in the trials against Gordon Kerr and Timothy O’Sullivan, attorneys practicing in the TCI, the evidence presented in court was barred from being reported; citing potential reputational damage for the pair. Hanchell added, “We all want a fair trial, but, when we don’t have access to a jury and the state uses taxpayer money to fund a PR blitz against us, you wonder if justice will really be served?” Nine are on a trial to answer the Special Investigation charges of corruption.
