AI will play an increasing role in online security

Neural Networks were introduced as far back as the 40’s of the 20th century and first works about them started in the 50’s. Nowadays this technology is being used in different fields. We believe that the CleanTalk machine teaching technologies of spam detection could be upgraded with the help of Artificial Intelligence and the CleanTalk features could be expanded to define an emotional aspect of a comment.

Theoretical researches of spam filtering with Neural Networks say that these algorithms could achieve 100% efficiency.

The CleanTalk Company has started to develop Neural Networks Algorithms for spam presence analysis of comments and messages which could provoke negative effects, rudeness, abuse or fraud in discussions.

There is a big data safety problem in online security. There are too much data to process anomalies that could be the signs of spambots presence.

There are about 1.5 millions of requests the CleanTalk Cloud processes every day and each request contains set of about 40 parameters. The Cloud uses them to decide whether a request should be approved or blocked so AI could improve our possibilities in spambot patterns detection.

We intend to supplement technology of spam protection and moderation with more reliable feature and take into account such things as slang, typos, context and other traits of a visitor behavior.

How Did I Start a Company Blog?

I joined the company that I currently work with, in May 2015. It is a great company to work it, I must say and it was in operation since 1999. It was recently demerged from another company and had decided to start on focusing on marketing and communications, and thus, I was hired. I was the only person then, in the marketing team, assisted by a graphic designer and ad-hoc user interface or website developer.

I wanted to start a blog that can be used both professionally to talk IT topics, trends, and articles related to the technology offerings that the company offers; and personally to talk about employee engagement, highlighting employee of the month and make it personalize so that the CTE employees are also engaged. So how did I go about it:

Step 1 – Finalizing the category: Make a list of category, that I wanted the blog to cover, basically the scope of articles or in technical terms the site map. I broadly chose – Business and Technology. Under Business, we have generic stuff such as trends, strategy, leadership, employee, and productivity, while under Technology we have big data, cloud, and applications.

Step 2Elements to add: I then finalized what are the other items that I want to add to the blog, such as Twitter feeds, individual author pages, and call to action columns.

Step 3Developing forms or formats and wireframe development: I created three forms, first an author form to capture the author details; second, a blog post template; and third a blog post optimization form. Hand-in-hand, I explained the sitemap to the designer and detailed him what I want on the home screen and how the inner pages should be structured. http://utah.cleantalk.org/

Step 4Designing and Information collection – The designer designs the PSD screens of the pages at this stage. The screens are shared with the UX lead for his comments and suggestions and post iterations the screens are approved. In parallel, information about the authors and topics are collected.

Step 5Development and planning the pre-launch engagement strategy – The site is developed at this stage and the information collected is given to the developer to be inserted into the blog.

As a pre launch plan, I started a photography contest for the CTE employees to gain their interest and attention to the blog.

Step 6Testing and installation: This is a typical yet an extremely important step prior to launching your blog. We carried out a few days of testing and iterations to make the blog responsive and free from any bugs or errors. Also, we scheduled to upload the files live to the server on a Sunday.

Step 7 – Blog Launch: Finally the blog was launched and it took us 21 days to think through, plan, test and launch which I think was a great demonstration of team work.

Step 8Blog syndication and article promotion: Post launch we syndicated the articles to article directories while submitting the blog URL to website submission directories.

Importance of a Blog for Business

While creating a multi-channel marketing and communication strategy, certain key platforms of online marketing such as digital marketing and social media marketing will be an indispensable part of the grander scheme of things. In the midst of piecing together your online marketing puzzle, you will ask yourself the question – Do I really need a blog for my business?

The answer is a resounding Yes!

A meaningful and regularly updated blog is a great and inexpensive way to boost your inbound marketing activities, drive target audience to your site, build your brand and gain new prospects. Creating and maintaining a business blog offers you a direct channel of communication with your audience and opens up new opportunities for your business. Here’s why your business needs a blog:

1. A Blog boosts your SEO ranking:

Blogs have the power to give you the SEO juice you desire! Search Engines like Google and the Yahoo-Bing network (among others) love fresh, valuable and unique content. By creating and updating content on your blog consistently, you are offering original content for search engines to index; if you offer relevant keywords based content, your SEO ranking could get a boost. Every time you create a new blog post, you are essentially creating a new web page on your site, thus giving search engines more opportunities to index and rank your site. Websites that blog typically have 434% more indexed pages than those who do not blog. Moreover, websites that blog typically have 97% more inbound links. http://oregon.cleantalk.org/

2. Blogs convert traffic into leads:

Blogs which provide value to users generate leads for the business, as users start referring to you as an expert in your domain. Incorporating a call-to action in each piece of blog content is a great way to convert your incoming user base into leads. A 77% upswing in median monthly leads is observed in businesses with more than 51 blog posts. The call-to action could range from filling out an information form, calling a 24×7 helpline or leaving a query on the blog post itself.

3. Convert leads into sales:

The ultimate goal of your content marketing activities is to generate revenue from your target audience – blogs have the potential to convert relevant leads into revenue generators, with the added benefit of being a low-cost avenue. 31.1% of the digital audience consider a business blog to be the second most influential factor when it comes to making a purchase. A well-curated blog serves as the brand’s voice and a rich source of information about new products, services and value propositions that the business has to offer to its consumers.

4. Blogging positions you as an expert:

When you create and post unique, interesting and share-worthy content within your niche, you are creating a clout of reliability around your business. Over time, your content and opinion on various industry relevant topics becomes valuable and resourceful. Aside from sharing your expertise with the online community, posting informative content on your business blog or on other blogs (via guest blogging) positions you as an influencer in the industry. According to Technorati, 71% of respondents who maintain blogs for a business have reported that they have increased their visibility within their industries through their blogs, while 56% said that their blog has helped them position as a thought leader within the industry.

5. It’s a great conversation platform:

Your business blog is a great platform to directly communicate with your audience. Blogging provides you with avenues to connect with your site visitors through comments, feedback and questions. By proactively responding to and engaging with your audience, you can build a favourable rapport with them; build a relationship based on trust and gain insights into what your customers really need.

Although a business blog is a cost-effective tool to boost traffic to your website and generate engagement, it requires dedication and a structured approach. But all in all, a blog is a must-have for businesses looking to establish themselves in the digital content space.
