The Globe and Mail: The Paywall That Knows When To Give Up
The Globe and Mail, the largest newspaper in Canada, has built Sophi.io, a newsroom product (a natural language processing-based artificial intelligence system) that knows when to ask for money, when to ask for an email address, and when to simply leave readers uninterrupted.
(Senior Product Manager, Analytics at The Globe and Mail) was a keynote speaker at the annual conference of the Online News Association
and gave a master class about how Sophi.io enables fully dynamic paywall decisions for news websites
“Our paywall knows when to give up. It knows when not to bug someone because they’re not going to get money from them anyway…
“Some readers might never encounter a paywall - for example, a hypothetical visitor who primarily reads car reviews, which is a strong source of ad revenue- while others might see one every time they visit the site (depending on their device, location, and propensity to read articles about investing)…
"Data scientists and data engineers now make up roughly 10% of The Globe and Mail’s staff. It’s an investment that has made all the difference. Each data scientist we have hired has paid for the next one.”
