Commenting on the appointments, Sacha Carton, Board Director said: “We are delighted to have attracted two people of the caliber of James and Izzet. James has a proven track record in developing online publisher networks, while Izzet’s immense technical knowledge will be invaluable as we look to maintain the rapid growth in our semantic iSense™ Network.”

ad pepper media’s move to strengthen its business development team follows the successful launch in September of the company’s iSense™ technology suite. Developed by world renowned linguistic expert Prof. David Crystal OBE, iSense uses a proprietary, patented targeting technology called SenseEngine™ to deliver advertisements that are contextually relevant to the web pages on which they are served.

iSense goes beyond mathematical algorithms, analyzing each word on the page to present truly contextual advertising. iSense is available as a suite of advertising products, and offers advertisers a choice of 25 high-level and 250 median-level categories by which to target their advertising.

Advertisers wishing to drill down further can segment by reference to 2,500 specific subject areas. iSense SiteScreen technology ensures that advertising is not placed alongside controversial content.
