How will the rise of artificial intelligence change marketing?

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a term that has been thrown around a lot lately, but what does it really mean? AI is a branch of computer science that emphasizes the creation of intelligent machines that work and react like humans. It has been around for a very long time, but today it is becoming a critical component of digital marketing that is helping companies realize meaningful results. Everyone's talking about AI, but fewer marketers truly understand what's going on. How should you, and your agency, prepare for AI?


AI and ML not being utilised enough in the digital marketing sphere -- Gartner

#artificialintelligence

A lack of artificial intelligence and machine learning usage in digital marketing is causing a significant issue for marketers looking to deliver personalised experiences to customers, according to Gartner. In its new report, the analyst firm revealed that almost two-thirds (63%) of digital marketers struggle with this issue, from a survey of 350 marketing leaders from November 2020 through December 2020. One of the main problems is that digital marketing leaders are scaling their use of AI and ML to align with customer retention and acquisition goals rather than across the marketing function. This contrasts with another statistic: 84% of digital marketing leaders believe using AI/ML enhances the marketing function's ability to deliver real-time, personalised experiences to customers. Gartner says many digital marketers believe bringing automation, scale and efficiency to marketing activities across channels is the greatest value of AI/ML tools. "A comprehensive personalisation strategy and roadmap can be deciding factors in the results marketers achieve from their personalisation efforts, yet most marketing organisations lack an effective personalisation strategy – let alone one that is explicitly linked to desired business and customer goals," says Gartner for Marketers vice president analyst Noah Elkin.

Machine learning MLSys 2021: Bridging the divide between machine learning and systems Amazon distinguished scientist and conference general chair Alex Smola on what makes MLSys unique -- both thematically and culturally. Email Alex Smola, Amazon vice president and distinguished scientist The Conference on Machine Learning and Systems ( MLSys), which starts next week, is only four years old, but Amazon scientists already have a rich history of involvement with it. Amazon Scholar Michael I. Jordan is on the steering committee; vice president and distinguished scientist Inderjit Dhillon is on the board and was general chair last year; and vice president and distinguished scientist Alex Smola, who is also on the steering committee, is this year's general chair. As the deep-learning revolution spread, MLSys was founded to bridge two communities that had much to offer each other but that were often working independently: machine learning researchers and system developers. Registration for the conference is still open, with the very low fees of $25 for students and $100 for academics and professionals. "If you look at the big machine learning conferences, they mostly focus on, 'Okay, here's a cool algorithm, and here are the amazing things that it can do. And by the way, it now recognizes cats even better than before,'" Smola says. "They're conferences where people mostly show an increase in capability. At the same time, there are systems conferences, and they mostly care about file systems, databases, high availability, fault tolerance, and all of that. "Now, why do you need something in-between? Well, because quite often in machine learning, approximate is good enough. You don't necessarily need such good guarantees from your systems.
