pubX is a small, agile, VC-backed start-up working to deliver artificial intelligence technology which will revolutionise the digital publishing industry.
Our mission is to enable digital publishers to monetize more effectively by helping them to fight back against Advertising Technology that has been designed to commoditize and lower the price of their inventory by creating cutting edge technology of a similar calibre to that used by advertisers and media agencies.
We believe that publishers are a cornerstone of society and democracy and that if advertising trends continue as they are, publishers will be lost to the world, along with truth, objectivity, and knowledge, replaced by walled garden echo chambers which are a pernicious component of society and fuel and foster hate.
