Most Contagious 2016
Most Contagious is the acclaimed year-end event staged by Contagious. It makes sense of the most important trends in marketing, technology and consumer culture from the past year and analyses what impact these ideas will have on the immediate future for brands and agencies.
The event includes a full-day conference programme, with talks from Contagious as well as expert guest speakers, panel debates and discussions. There’s also a startup award competition and an exhibition to showcase disruptive ideas, innovative new technologies and the makers behind them.
Contagious equips companies across the globe to achieve the top 1% of marketing creativity through the research platform, consultancy, quarterly magazine and live events.
Most Contagious Exhibition
Contagious invites people, companies and products from the Wildfire section of Contagious Magazine and Contagious I/O to showcase their projects. The exhibition is a chance for delegates to get up close and hands-on with need-to-know technologies, products and services that will reshape the future.
Most Contagious Startups
The shortlisted companies compete for the Most Contagious Startup: The Small But Perfectly Formed Award 2016, that will be sponsored by Essence.
The six startups have been selected for their potential impact, advanced uses of new technology and success in terms of growth and investment. Each company will pitch to the audience of 400+ delegates from the world’s top brands and agencies at Most Contagious on December 7 in London.
London-based Monzo has created a mobile-only bank based around its customers’ needs rather than its own financial products. Within its mobile app, Monzo provides users with real-time spending tracking, budgeting help and the ability to cancel a lost or stolen card instantly, for example.
Using machine learning, Seattle-based ReplyYes sends its users product suggestions via SMS which can be purchased by just texting back ‘Yes’. Currently, the startup recommends comic books and vinyl but will add further product types in the future.
The musical team at Jukedeck has developed an AI composer that can generate an original track in a matter of seconds. Users just specify the length and genre of the track that they desire. The London-based startup provides a great example of how computational creativity can be useful.
Currently, three billion people lack access to adequate housing. Sao Paulo-based Urban3D is looking to revolutionise the construction industry and put an end to global homelessness by creating new, low-cost materials and construction processes. For example, the materials can be 3D printed and have embedded RFID chips that allow the building to be tracked.
The Not Company
This Santiago-based startup is using artificial intelligence to develop plant-based dairy alternatives. It’s algorithm (which goes by the name of Giuseppe, by the way) analyses food on a molecular level to find and predict plant-based combinations that can be used to re-create flavours.
Copy in Amy or Andrew Ingram into an email and they will take care of scheduling a meeting for you for a fraction of the cost of hiring a PA. The helpful duo are actually AI agents, created by New York-based startup x.ai.
