LONDON & SEATTLE --(Business Wire)--
The Ogilvy (News - Alert) Labs in London, part of the Ogilvy

Media-the pioneer in consumer-powered marketing-to explore how to
bring consumers and brands closer through anonymous mobile experiences.

behavioral change, we are delighted to hand pick the autograph®
technology as a game-changer on mobile," said Nicole Yershon, director
of innovative solutions, Ogilvy & Mather UK. "Its ability to nudge
people into communicating 5,500 clear interest signals, by way of an
intelligent and personal mobile environment, will radically change the
economics of mobile advertising."

#OgilvyChange initiative that was founded by Ogilvy & Mather UK

research in cognitive psychology and behavioral economics with the
communications expertise of Ogilvy & Mather UK- investigating how social
sciences can help to change people's minds and behavior for the better.
"We're thrilled that Ogilvy is confident in our ability to contribute to
the vision of #OgilvyChange," said nFluence Media's CEO Henry Lawson,
who is bringing his company to the Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) in
Barcelona next week. "Our autograph technology respects people far
better than behavioral targeting, thus providing better results."
nFluence Media's CTO Brian Roundtree added: "Our technology
revolutionizes and personalizes the outdated consumer targeting method
of invasive tracking. The old method targets people. Our method aims to
understand each person."
