“Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don’t.” — Bill Nye
As a marketer, when you come across a topic that’s unfamiliar (artificial intelligence, perhaps), what do you do?
Maybe you ignore it completely—you have enough to worry about already, right? Or, you might do a quick Google search and read a few articles before getting back to writing your fifth blog post of the day.
Or, if you’re truly interested in learning and growth, you’ll find and follow experts on the topic.
At the Marketing Artificial Intelligence Conference (MAICON) 2022, marketers have the opportunity to learn from more than 50 marketing AI leaders and over 300 next-gen marketing peers.
Expert-led sessions will cover how marketing AI can enhance planning and production, personalization and promotion, and data and performance. Here’s an inside look at five main stage speakers and sessions happening on Aug 4, 2022, that you won’t want to miss.
1. Language AI and the Future of Writing (Register Here)
There is a race among technology companies to understand and generate language. In part, entrepreneurs and AI researchers seek to augment and automate copywriting in order to make advertising, communications, content marketing, email marketing, and social media marketing more efficient. But that’s only the start of the story.
Language, to some, is considered fundamental to intelligence. And as language AI capabilities rapidly expand through innovations from Google, DeepMind, Microsoft, OpenAI, Meta AI and others, we are entering a realm of excitement and uncertainty.
The potential for more intelligent marketing is seemingly limitless, but so many critical questions remain unanswered.
For example, how do we protect consumers and businesses from disinformation and misinformation? How does bias in language models affect the tools we use as marketers? And how do we prepare for unintended consequences on our customers and employees?
This panel, featuring Jeff Coyle, Christopher Penn, Lisa Spira, and Mike Kaput, will:
- Discuss the current capabilities of language AI to augment and automate your team, while addressing the limitations and concerns of today’s language models.
- Offer practical advice on language AI tools that can bring immediate value to companies.
- Explore the potential near-term language AI advancements that could disrupt media companies, agencies, and brands.

2. Ethical and Trustworthy AI: Lessons from the Front Lines (Register Here)
Much has been written and commented on about AI and Ethics from an academic perspective. But very little practical work has been done in implementing ethical and trustworthy AI.
This keynote from Dr. Gemma Galdón Clavell will help you realize that certain industry standards are increasingly in risk of falling out of the eyes of the general public and legislators; from a functionality point of view to a discriminatory and unfair outcome.
And the truth is that the examples that can be shown relating to day-to-day situations and processes that we go through individually, at work or at a personal level, and as a society are outrageous and extremely impactful and, quite frankly, they pass unnoticed.
Ethics is becoming the quintessential piece in creating and developing technology and AI that performs in the most complete and thorough way possible. The conversation about innovation and the future must include it.

Many times AI systems come into use—augmenting processes, making predictions, and affecting communities—without any ethical audit to ensure they are fit for use. Today, countries are slowly starting to recognize the consequences of unaudited AI and are releasing more and more regulations to protect the privacy and wellbeing of humans.
3. Dawn of the Next-Gen Marketer (Register Here)
As artificial intelligence advances what’s possible with technology, the next generation of marketers is emerging. These professionals aren’t defined as next-gen because of age but rather their approach to embracing change and applying smarter (i.e. AI-powered) technologies.
In this MAICON 2022 opening keynote, Paul Roetzer, Marketing AI Institute founder and CEO, lays out the vision and opportunity for next-gen marketers who use AI to deliver the personalization and experiences modern consumers expect; unlock previously unimaginable creative possibilities; and drive efficiency, revenue growth, profits, and societal impact that leadership demands.
We have entered the age of intelligent automation. AI is not going to replace you. Rather, it will replace specific tasks, and augment what you are capable of doing. Don’t wait for the marketing world to get smarter around you. Take the initiative now to understand, pilot, and scale AI. The opportunities are endless for marketers with the will and vision to transform their careers, and the industry.

GPT-3 is a powerful language model that can complete tasks like drafting full articles, detecting patterns in natural language, and generating summaries. It has a wide range of applications and benefits to marketers, but it also poses several risks if misused.
5. The Cognitive Human Enterprise: When AI, the Metaverse, and Humanity Collide (Register Here)
There exists a false narrative today that Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are replacing humans in the workplace. In fact, the reality is very different where ML and AI are being deployed at scale,and yet industry are hiring more than ever.
There is, however, a massive gap within industry around enhancing and leveraging human creativity and unlocking human potential at scale. Humans have knowledge, understanding and wisdom that machines and algorithms don’t have and we need to tap into that knowledge to create more value for society. However, machines and algorithms can perform certain tasks at a speed and scale that humans can never achieve.
In this talk, EY Global Lead, Domhnaill Hernon, will give examples where AI enhances human creativity, and how we fuse art and technology to bring together the very best of humanity with the best of technology. He will also share EY's work fusing the physical and the virtual, and placing humans@center in the evolving Metaverse landscape.
