Your refrigerator will automatically order almond milk, egg whites, and fat-free butter while it tries to get you to try a new kind of genetically engineered hot dog.
Right at the moment, the advertising trades are obsessing over self-driving taxis and dreaming of the contextual ad possibilities they present.
Or as Hewitt put it in his interview with the Daily:
“Not too far into the future the ads will be contextually presented and may also be served up as bite-sized services instead of just targeted display advertising.”
If everything works out as planned, it will be just like having a little person on your shoulder, constantly nagging you to do all the things your favorite brands want you to do.
