It then applies statistical analysis to these models to predict the kinds of people users are likely to succeed with. CanWe Studios' participation with AMD is the first B2B engagement for CanWe Studios and allows it to showcase how it uses valuable business intelligence and the immediacy of mobile to create timely, positive and relevant interactions between organizations and their target audiences.AMD's Austin-focused campaign centers on sponsorship of the Austin City Limits music festival and a digital engagement campaign to support the launch of the 2 nd generation AMD A-series Accelerated Processor Units (APUs).The campaign will build awareness amongst the Austin tech and digital scene of AMD's innovative technologies and products. CanWeNetwork will identify the people AMD could reach and provide a platform for connecting with them, giving consumers the power to control how and when they are able to interact with AMD.
