Market research firm Common Sense Advisory has published the report "Four Futures for Global Intelligent Content." It analyzes four content trends that promise to add value to the masses of information generated every second: how semantically enriched content is adding knowledge to content; why machine-generated material is exploding content volumes and changing the nature of text; how conversational interactions are transforming content requirements and building demand for new ways to record information about users and their relationship to content; and why the rise of speech-enabled and headless devices will require content intelligence. The report also offers recommendations for how to prepare for the rise of intelligent content.
