The countdown is on. 

We are less than a week away from the Marketing Artificial Intelligence Conference (MAICON)!


With speakers from top tech companies including Facebook, HubSpot, Softbank Robotics, and Publicis Sapient, among many others, MAICON will curate ideas and learnings from some of the brightest minds in the field. 

Read on for a preview of five speakers taking the main stage at MAICON (and you can view the full list of speakers here).

Pham is a storyteller, strategist and writer with a knack for turning complex things into compelling stories. As a UX content strategist at Facebook's News Feed and Stories team, she chooses the words they use in the interface for two billion people.

2. Karen Hao, AI Reporter, MIT Technology Review

As the artificial intelligence reporter for MIT Technology Review, Hao covers the advancements in, ethics of, and social impact of the technology. During her session, Is This AI?, Hao will answer the question on all our minds: What is AI, exactly?   


The question may seem basic, but the answer can be complicated. In fact, the boundaries of AI can get really confusing. This session will give you the confidence and framework to evaluate AI-powered marketing technologies.

3. Mitch Joel, President, Six Pixels Group

Joel is Founder of Six Pixels Group, an advisory, investing and content producing company that is focused on commerce and innovation.

Joel will take the main stage to discuss the proliferation of voice assistants and smart audio during his session, Hello, Voice. This technology is scaling at an exponential pace, and it’s more critical than ever that we, as marketers, have a thorough understanding of voice and the massive opportunity it presents.
