The AI Landscape in Marketing
Whispers in tech labs, digital marketing agencies and offices around the world disclose a certain amount of trepidation that computers will take over jobs. The evolution of artificial intelligence is relentless.
You could leave the room to grab a cup of coffee, and by the time you sit back down at your desk, you’ll read headlines promising a new, more advanced model for natural language generation or even content creation. But, is this enough of a reason for marketers and those working in creative industries to feel intimidated or threatened by AI?
As Christopher S. Penn predicts, in the near future, either your job will be to manage the machines, or the machines will manage you. But, if you learn to prepare your career for AI and understand how you can harness its power without making yourself redundant, you’ll secure your position for many years to come.
