Intro to Artificial Intelligence for Marketing

From market research to direct mail metrics to web analytics to Big Data, the job of “marketing” has changed dramatically over time. We have arrived at a fundamental shift in marketing that is as impactful as the advent of the Internet: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

This workshop introduces marketing professionals of all ranks to the theory, the language and the practical application of these disruptive technologies.
This workshop will not teach you how to be a data scientist.
It will teach you enough about the language and implications to speak cogently with your colleagues, and determine where to apply this innovative technology first. You will also get a firm grasp on how these new tools will change your job and what you can do to remain relevant in tomorrow’s marketing department.

Key Takeaways

  • How Machine Learning Works for Marketing
  • What Machine Learning Cannot do for Marketing
  • How to Onboard AI and ML into Your Organization
