How AI Is Changing the World of Advertising Forever

An excellent example of this is the company Frank, an AI based advertising firm for startups. Overall, while Wall Street recognizes Artificial Intelligence's potential impact in the creative world, it's safe to say when it comes to telling a story, that human touch will never go away. Perhaps one of the most underrated things about AI is its potential to eliminate practices altogether. While before B2B sales could rely on either targeted ads or sales teams to bring clients in, software like Leadcrunch's is eliminating those processes altogether.


The Expanding Role of Marketing -- and Artificial Intelligence -- In Experience Business Adobe

#artificialintelligence

Every employee must have the same goal: delivering compelling, personalized, and seamless experiences that enable long-time emotional connections and loyalty to the brand. For example, the Disney product designers creating the MagicBands needed to think about how to make the product so it provides a memorable service, rather than intrudes on it. In any case, as AI technology becomes less expensive and more prolific, experience businesses can provide consumers with even more actionable, personalized data that helps improve and even prolong life. Again, everyone in your organization needs to think like a marketer, with AI and data helping to create and improve the experiences your customers expect and demand.


The Artificial Intelligence Anti-Pattern - DZone AI

#artificialintelligence

The list of tasks normally requiring human intelligence we could call the backlog of the Artificial Intelligence product. That includes visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making…add the ability to write code and we have the singularity. This article does an outstanding job of distinguishing between the concepts of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning, where machine learning is basically a means to an artificially intelligent end.

@machinelearnbot

People from academia use the term text mining, especially data mining researchers, while text analytics is mainly used in industry. BL: It comes from three research areas: information retrieval, data mining, and natural language processing (NLP). Early text mining basically applied data mining and machine learning algorithms on text data without using NLP techniques such as parsing, part-of-speech tagging, summarization, etc. BL: Let's talk about natural language processing rather than text analytics, as advanced text analytics requires natural language processing.


Making Sense of Machine Learning

@machinelearnbot

Broadly speaking, machine learners are computer algorithms designed for pattern recognition, curve fitting, classification and clustering. To keep things simple, I will refer to well-known statistical techniques like regression and factor analysis as older machine learners and methods such as artificial neural networks as newer machine learners since they are generally less familiar to marketing researchers. They come in many flavors and are used for classification, regression, clustering, text mining and for assortment of real-time analytics. AdaBoost, likewise, is versatile and not restricted to decision trees as the base learner, though decision trees are fast to run and usually adequate.
