InHabit is the latest offering in Arkadium’s line of interactive content solutions that are built to elevate audience engagement, strengthen brand loyalty, and create additional incremental revenue streams for publishers and advertisers. Its patent-pending technology leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to establish context by reading any article and dynamically inserting an interactive editorial unit that’s intentionally designed to engage the reader with factually relevant and functionally interesting experiences within the article it appears on. The dynamic editorial units – which the company calls “ƒactives™” – are conceived and written by Arkadium’s in-house editorial staff and leverage AI to dynamically translate big data sets in order to populate articles with relevant contextual content. Each factive can serve potentially infinite variations of data and produce complimentary, highly engaging content that is relevant, sophisticated, timely and brand-safe.

“Content today is being consumed in previously unimaginable ways across social platforms and experienced in mobile first, connected device environments,” said Martin. “There’s a tremendous opportunity for publishers and brands to leverage their content, with the right technology, to engage consumers unlike ever before. Through an extraordinary combination of human editorial, AI, and machine learning, InHabit provides publishers with the tools to capitalize on this opportunity – and create scalable, dynamic interactive storytelling experiences that truly captures their audiences’ attention.”
