Over the last decade, social media has been evolving. For people, social media has become one of the primary ways that we communicate and interact with one another. For organizations and brands, it has become a core platform in every marketing strategy to create personalized content that resonates with customers and drives engagement. This about to change forever; but not in a way that you might think.

With the arrival of Artificial Intelligence and Voice-First devices the way that we think about social media and generate content is about to change. AI and Voice-First aims to help integrate with social media to help parse through the noise, and aid marketers in developing content that is authentic and that can truly resonate with audiences.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about the current state of Artificial Intelligence and Voice-First in 2019
  • How AI will integrate with social media to allow marketers to parse through the noise and analyze consumer insights data
  • Why various social media platforms are embracing AI and Voice-First for customer service by offering lifelike chatbots that can understand and help customers in the moments they need it the most
  • How the Voice-First ecosystem of digital voice assistants like Alexa, Google, Cortana, and Siri are paving the way for a new era of content creation and one-to-one consumer engagement to offer value and help people solve problems
