Human Touch: Men and Machine Transforming for The Better
There’s been a lot of debate and fear-mongering around how AI will affect humans in the future. Will computers eventually replace us? Who is going to regulate it? Elon Musk recently even commented that AI could be more dangerous than North Korea. Sonja Moosburger and Limor Schweitzer of Mediamrkstaturn Retail Group and RoboSavvy respectively will look to combat these claims, instead discussing how machine’s data analytical prowess and man’s creativity can work as one. As we move closer to a world in which all marketing will become data driven this seminar is a must attend.
