We’ve been looking pretty closely at Retail Priorities 2018 here at WGSN, and now, a new study from Juniper Research takes a look at the future of retail in relation to AI spending. Whilst the figure is expected to be around $2bn this year, it’s set to rise by $7.3bn annually by 2022, a new study from Juniper Research shows, as retailers target new avenues to boost customer experience personalisation.
At WGSN, we’re always on the lookout for what’s next – particularly within the realm of emerging designers. With New York Fashion week just days away, WGSN Catwalks Associate Editor Anna Ross hand picks three young designers on her radar, selected from our Brands to Watch report. Cited as one of our one to watch during SS18, Matthew has been making his mark on the womenswear scene with covetable gender-fluid pieces – approved by no less than Rhianna herself.
Twice a year, the trend experts at WGSN gather to identify the political, economic, artistic, and socio-cultural movements that will impact everything from how we shop, to how we eat and communicate. Over the course of 6 months, the Vision macro trends are interpreted into 200 forecasts for 16 sectors that empower WGSN members to future-proof their products and services. For 2019, in times of extremism and uncertainty, we are seeing powerful reactions to events around the globe.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
