RJ Talyor, CEO and Founder of Pattern89, joins the Social Pros Podcast to discuss the value of artificial intelligence to improving your social ad strategy.
Embracing Artificial Intelligence
The subject of artificial intelligence has become nearly impossible to avoid no matter where you look. Whether the discussion is about science, movies, or even marketing, AI seems to be dominating the conversation.
While this may leave many marketers nervous about their place in this new landscape, RJ Talyor of Pattern89 believes that the human marketer will always be an invaluable part of the equation. At Pattern89, they use advanced artificial intelligence to conduct testing far beyond what any human or team of humans could achieve. By analyzing thousands of facets of successful ad campaigns, Pattern89 is able to show businesses ways they can better reach their audiences.
Ultimately, though, it takes a human with real creativity to create real emotional connections with customers. The future is not a terrifying one of machines dominating the workplace, but a step toward harnessing technology to drive creativity and real human connection between businesses and consumers.
