NEW YORK_January 9th, 2024— ArcSpan Technologies, the innovative publisher audience monetization company, proudly announces the launch of Custom Content Taxonomies as an integral part of the ArcSpan AMS™ data monetization platform. This groundbreaking offering leverages Artificial Intelligence (AI) to empower publishers to identify and monetize their most valuable audience segments with accuracy and scale.

Leveraging big data and advanced Large Language Models, ArcSpan goes beyond standard industry classifications to support data accuracy and scale in delivering high-value audience cohorts across contextual, behavioral, intent, and attention-based targeting attributes.
