How Verve Group Transforms Customer Experiences With Google Cloud Vertex AI


Verve Group is an ecosystem of demand and supply technologies fusing data, media, and technology to deliver results and growth to both advertisers and publishers – no matter the screen or location, no matter who, what, or where a customer is. Classifying massive amounts of this unstructured data at scale is the first step in helping to surface relevant, high-quality content to users—and that’s where natural language processing (NLP) comes in.

Verve Group uses the NLP API from Google Cloud’s Vertex AI to fetch data for their internal content classification quality verification and as an additional source for building categorization models. By leveraging the NLP API’s Content Classification models, which are now generally available and offer Google’s latest large language model (LLM) technology, Verve Group powers classification through an updated and expanded training data set with over 1,000 labels and support for 11 languages (Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russia, Spanish, and Dutch join previously-available English). 

Verve Group has been using Google Cloud’s NLP API since day one, because of both the ease of implementation and the quality compared to competing NLP products. With documentation that is “comprehensive and self-explanatory,” the NLP API “allows for fast adoption and implementation, from test models all the way to production,” said Rami Alanko, GM of Verve Group.

Leveraging the NLP API has facilitated Verve Group’s fast go-to-market motions by enabling its customers to quickly discover and classify new content. “Operating on a global level with tens of different regions and languages, we have still been able to maintain high quality for our product and high retention rates with our clients,” Rami shared. “In a recent client case, we achieved 82% improvement in CTR when optimized with content quality measurements enabled by the API. In another client case, we drove brand safety risk down to 0.16% from 4% thanks to classification quality. Along with the new functionalities of the Google NLP, I can only see this trend continuing to strengthen.”

Verve Group is excited to further expand their NLP use cases by leveraging the new Content Classification models, which have already helped them expand their classification inventory, improve the quality and performance of their quality verification for customers, and unlock new use cases for NLP. “Our classification model accuracy improved 41% using Google NLP as a verification partner,” said Rami.  

Additionally, Verve Group is now using the API for metadata analysis on a  large image database. “We browse the database and run the image metadata via our classification. This flow enables us to classify images reliably aligned with our standard classification.  We pretty much use the same data flow for our runtime in-app textual content analysis, therefore allowing for close to real-time consumer engagement,” Rami added.
