In March 2023, Keith O’Brian of Realeyes invited Brand and Media specialist Matthias Rothensee for an interview for his Attention Leader Series. The Realeyes company is a leader in advertising testing and uses AI to measure audience attention and engagement.

In the conversation, Matthias Rothensee uses a psychologist’s perspective to explain his unique perspective on measuring attention and the concept of attention as a nonlinear process.
