Finding space in your 2018 budget for Lucy: Where does AI fit in?

So big that one global communications group, France’s Publicis Groupe, is steering its budget to undertake the in-house construction on its own custom AI platform “Marcel”, according to a recent report in Ad Age. "All investments and focus" of this company, with 80,000 employees in 130 countries, will go towards building the platform. Announcements like this are a powerful reminder that major players believe high-octane machine learning systems will be a game changer and they are making it a priority within their marketing budget.

Clearing up the fog around Artificial Intelligence: what today’s AIs can—and can’t—do

The term Artificial Intelligence, or AI for short, has been around forever. We’ve encountered it in literature, TV shows, and summer blockbusters.

We’re not going to see HAL 9000-levels of omniscience and independent decision-making, but make no mistake: these advanced computing systems will have a major impact on the industries that adopt them. But today's AIs aren't a “magic bullet” - smart as they are, they can’t solve business problems on their own.

Taking Aim at Audiences: How Lucy helps marketers reach their target customers

One of the things that makes working on Lucy’s team so exciting is being able to see a few years into the future of our industry. In my previous position as a brand manager, I labored to create messages that would resonate in just the right way with their intended audiences. We did our best, using the data we had such as transaction history and web pages viewed, to form an idea of our different customer segments so we could speak to each in a personalized voice. Some of what we did was guesswork, and a lot of it missed the mark because we had no tool for personalizing messages around what would resonate on a mass scale. Lucy is that tool. If I were still working as a brand manager today, I would insist at having her at my side.

This supercomputer’s hero? Her human partners!

Lucy explains why she does her best work as part of a team.

I’ve been designed to do what I do with inhuman speed, which means there’s not a person alive who could compete with me. When it comes to searching through vast data reserves to come up with an on-point answer, even a team of marketers would need weeks to travel the territory I cover in an hour. Yet I was architected to work as a marketing team member—not as the leader. Why? Human-computer teamwork is the foundation of the vision my creators have for the future of marketing.
