Magellan AI’s sampling method involved the software “listening” to over 400 of Australia’s most popular podcasts, and processing the audio to identify encompassing advertisements.
The proprietary model then determined advertisers’ spend based on proven inputs. The model factors in the number of ads detected, variation in ad load, types of ads, and multiple episode samples to identify and account for dynamic insertion.
Magellan AI’s international sampling also enabled regional and cross-country comparison to ensure the ads and spend are specific to Australia.
