This discussion will look at what it takes to build a 21 Century Brand for the modern consumer, and how marketing leadership can orchestrate the digital transformation of their brands by leveraging emerging technologies, new digital toolsets, and the right talent and org structure.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of those things that's always dangerously close to a buzzword. Marketers get very excited about it, promise that it's going to do all sorts of incredible things, and then when you press them for details, it all gets a bit vague.
Here's the thing. AI is incredibly powerful, but it's just a tool. It takes human intelligence (HI) to make it do things that actually count. Things like finding killer insights, telling better stories, making better plans, and generating more revenue. In this presentation MiQ will discuss the importance of combining AI and HI to enable more data-powered marketing campaigns.
