In the last few decades, we’ve experienced a rapid evolution of AI. Since its humble beginnings in 1956, artificial intelligence has transformed from simple predictive models to powerful machines, fueled by deep learning.

So, what does the future of AI look like?

At the Marketing Artificial Intelligence Conference (MAICON) 2022, the following three keynote sessions, led by marketing AI experts, will dive deep into what you can expect from artificial intelligence—now and in the coming years—and how this impacts your organization.
