What are Virtual Audiences and why are they such a powerful tool for insights creators

Yabble September 21, 2023

The insights landscape is changing quickly.  Traditional data collection methods will always have their place, but a new player has emerged – Yabble’s Virtual Audiences. Staying ahead of the curve on the latest tools and trends is essential for unlocking meaningful insights. This powerful tool is redefining how market researchers can engage with their audience and gather critical insights. In this blog post, we'll explore what Virtual Audiences are and why they will become an indispensable asset for insights creators. 

What Are Virtual Audiences? 

The insights industry is set to evolve dramatically with the introduction of AI generated data. This new type of data is often referred to as synthetic data, augmented data or virtual audiences, and it is truly going to revolutionize the insight creation process over the next 12 – 18 months. Why?  Because it allows for insights to be created without the traditional fieldwork stage, meaning that insight generation can almost be instantaneous. What’s more, depending on the model being employed to create the data, the outputs are rich, detailed and insightful. 

 Yabble's Virtual Audiences product is a great example of using generative AI to create data. Yabble’s Virtual Audiences aren’t just simulations; they're dynamic AI-driven personas that emulate real customer interactions, providing invaluable insights into consumer behavior. These personas generate responses as if they were real individuals, making them invaluable for understanding consumer behavior and preferences. Yabble's Virtual Audiences tool streamlines the insights generation process, turning hours or even days of work into mere minutes. 

The Power of Generative AI and Augmented Data 

Yabble’s Virtual Audiences are powered by Yabble’s proprietary Augmented Data model. 

Rather than relying solely on survey responses or human panelists, generative AI serves as a proxy for human responses based on extensive datasets. This revolutionary approach opens up new avenues for gathering insights and broadens the scope of questions that can be asked. 

This means our Virtual Audiences are able to offer real-time, in-depth insights on a variety of topics, markets and target groups, by analyzing data dynamically from diverse sources.  

Yabble's Augmented Data model gathers information from sources like proprietary databases, academic repositories, and real-time web searches to ensure the relevance, accuracy, and timeliness of the information provided to our users. We may also use machine learning to analyze social media trends, offering insights into current public sentiment. This data helps create detailed personas, devise pertinent questions and summarize the audience's interests. Our aim is to provide users with precise answers and engaging interactions with the generated personas.
