Here’s how OLAY’s skin analysis platform opened my eyes to AI innovation in beauty

Mashable

Editor's Note: A representative from Mashable's Branded Content team attended the Olay panel on a Global Skin Analysis Program at Mobile World Congress and gave a firsthand account of the event. This is where Olay premiered their Skin Advisor, which is a platform powered by artificial intelligence. Mashable's Chief Data Scientist, Haile Owusu, sat on this panel. I'd never really considered the myriad applications of artificial intelligence (AI) until I took my seat at the OLAY panel at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The subtle ways that AI is disrupting our lives are many and varied - and often in places you'd least expect.

I'd never really considered the myriad applications of artificial intelligence (AI) until I took my seat at the OLAY panel at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The subtle ways that AI is disrupting our lives are many and varied - and often in places you'd least expect. OLAY - and the broader beauty space - is one of these places. Do we all really understand what our skin needs? Here's where AI is really changing the game.

A new study examining what consumers think of technology in financial services finds the majority of Americans (88 percent) want technology to complement, not replace, the assistance of a human financial advisor. Only five percent state financial planning should be managed entirely by technology-based tools. The study was commissioned by MDRT and conducted online by The Harris Poll among over 2,000 U.S. adults. "Due to their experienced insight, expertise and personal touch, human financial advisors are still in high demand amidst the growth of robo technologies," "Despite that consistent demand, this study shows that it behooves advisors to continue to integrate innovative technology into their practice for continued growth and success." While 83 percent of Americans would trust a human financial advisor to effectively manage their financial plans, only 36 percent would trust the job to a robo advisor.

Whether they currently use a financial advisor or not, about the same percentage of Americans in each group agree it is important that advisors are both technologically savvy (95 percent each) and use updated technology-based tools in their practice (96 percent who have an advisor and 95 percent who don't have an advisor). The majority of Americans (88 percent) say technology should complement, not replace, the services of a human financial advisor, with 85 percent of Americans stating they prefer working with a human financial advisor rather than a robo advisor. Only five percent of Americans believe financial planning should be managed entirely by technology-based tools and 36 percent strongly disagree that robo advisors could completely replace the role of human financial advisors in financial planning. The study found that, while 83 percent would trust a human financial advisor to effectively manage their financial plan, only 36 percent would trust the job to a robo advisor. The Human Advantage The top benefit Americans cite for working with a human financial advisor over a robo advisor is the opportunity to build a trusting relationship (65 percent), followed closely by the high level of human interaction (58 percent) and ease of communication (52 percent).
