Pattern Detection Technology and Privacy
Networked digital screens are now prevalent in the retail and public spaces landscape in North America and globally, displaying information and marketing messages to consumers throughout their busy days.
Hundreds of networks, operating hundreds of thousands of Internet-connected screens, have been deployed by everyone from pure startup companies to major media corporations.
