AMS Psychographics is creating a new class of science-based psychographic
data and analytics that enable ad networks to optimize audiences for
political advertising with unprecedented accuracy. The extraordinary
cost-effectiveness of our approach represents a game-changing tool for
political campaigns around the world, starting with the 2016 US elections.

In addition to their use in political targeting, our highly predictive

media-content recommendation engines, for targeting in certain types of
