In two presentations next week, GfK will take on subjects very much on marketers’ minds today: the disruptive potential of digital home assistants (DHAs), and the best ways to reach the TV “cordless” population – those without a traditional cable or satellite subscription.
The sessions will take place at the Advertising Research Foundation’s Audience Measurement 2017 conference, whose theme is “Modern Measurement, Media, Models & Methods.” The event will be held June 12-13 in Jersey City, NJ.

At 12:20PM on June 13, GfK’s David C. Tice (SVP, Media) and Meredith Paige (SVP, User Experience) will present “Alexa, How Disruptive Are You?” Their study of devices such as Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home shows how and why people are using these digital assistants – including media-related applications. Tice and Paige will also explore the user experience (UX) pros and cons of DHAs, and the importance of voice activation as a threat to remote controls, interactive screen interfaces, and similar technologies.
Also on June 13, at 2:10PM, GfK MRI’s Karen Ramspacher (SVP, Consumer Insights & Trends) will share the company’s latest Cord Evolution research on the habits and preferences of Cord Cutters and Cord Nevers. Networks and advertisers need deeper insights into this “cordless” population – who they really are and where they are going, as well as how to reach them with brand messages.
Ramspacher’s “Cordless Disruption” presentation is an Industry Spotlight session.
