Instead of cutting marketing budgets, Diageo decides to invest in marketing but to remove inefficient expenditures, and thus improve profits by shifting money investments. Two years ago, the company launched the platform Catalyst, whose main goal is to provide instant data to marketeers and help them create investment-worthy strategies. According to Diageo's global marketing effectiveness director, Adam Ben-Yousef, they have "achieved a more profound shift at the highest level in the belief in marketing investment. Marketing is no longer the first spend to be cut when a market wants to deliver its annual plan." It does that by solving issues and helping companies reach customer satisfaction.


Artificial Intelligence Governance and Ethics: Global Perspectives

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a technology which is increasingly being utilised in society and the economy worldwide, and its implementation is planned to become more prevalent in coming years. AI is increasingly being embedded in our lives, supplementing our pervasive use of digital technologies. But this is being accompanied by disquiet over problematic and dangerous implementations of AI, or indeed, even AI itself deciding to do dangerous and problematic actions, especially in fields such as the military, medicine and criminal justice. These developments have led to concerns about whether and how AI systems adhere, and will adhere to ethical standards. These concerns have stimulated a global conversation on AI ethics, and have resulted in various actors from different countries and sectors issuing ethics and governance initiatives and guidelines for AI. Such developments form the basis for our research in this report, combining our international and interdisciplinary expertise to give an insight into what is happening in Australia, China, Europe, India and the US.

He is also, not surprisingly, making a living out of numbers. This tall and young Spaniard, with a degree in mathematics from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, has been a fixture of the Dashmote's data science team since January. So how did Miguel, a native of Barcelona, end up living in the land of cheese and polders, working for an AI scale-up? It was during his degree that he knew he wanted to go into computer science. It wasn't a career change that brought him to the Netherlands, but love.


9 Developments In AI That You Really Need to Know

#artificialintelligence

Over 6,000 people are attending a conference focusing on artificial intelligence (AI) that opened in Amsterdam this morning. World Summit AI brings together corporates, startups, investors, scientists, academics, NGOs along with government bodies like the UN, EU and the World Economic Forum. Participants will be learning about some of the latest innovations in AI – the creation of human-like technology - that will transform business and the ethical issues that come with it. The event coincides with Artificial Intelligence in Europe, a report by Microsoft that reveals over half of the companies surveyed expect AI to have an impact on "business areas that are entirely unknown today". Yet only 4% of companies actively use AI suggesting European businesses, at least, have an enormous mountain to climb.
