Artificial intelligence has reached peak hype stage, but is it possible that its potential to transform marketing, and your career, is even greater than advertised?
Gartner forecasts global business value derived from AI is projected to reach $1.9 trillion in 2019, ramping up to $3.9 trillion in 2022 through three primary sources of customer experience, cost reduction and new revenue.
Meanwhile, McKinsey Global Institute projects up to a $6 trillion impact of AI and other analytics on marketing and sales, including the areas of pricing and promotion ($1.9T), customer service management ($1.0T), next product to buy/individualized offering ($1.0T), customer acquisition/lead generation ($0.7T), marketing budget allocation ($0.6T), churn reduction ($0.38T) and channel management ($0.32T).
Marketers who take the initiative to understand AI and find AI-powered solutions to business challenges will be able to intelligently automate time-intensive, data-driven activities; unearth hidden insights in analytics; activate unused data; augment predictive capabilities; and execute personalized campaigns of unprecedented complexity that drive meaningful business results.
But, how do you get started?
How do you figure out which use cases to prioritize? And, how do you navigate the hundreds of vendors touting AI, machine learning and deep learning capabilities?

More Intelligent. More Human.
Artificial intelligence enables professionals across all marketing categories to solve problems and achieve goals more efficiently at scale than with traditional marketing technology solutions.
In the process of making marketing more intelligent, AI has the potential to make brands more human by enabling marketers to focus increasing time and energy on listening, relationship building, creativity, culture and community. AI should make us better people, professionals and brands.
A strategic approach to solving problems, identifying use cases and integrating AI is essential. New AI technologies and capabilities are emerging daily, so organizations that want to establish a competitive advantage, and stay ahead, must remain nimble.
