AI HUB: NEW YORK, NEW YORK, MARCH 2019
With the constant collection of self-governing tech systems, connected devices/machines, smartphones/homes, and drones your personal data is being collected, tracked, and used by all types of companies. Can real-time decision-making by self-governing tech discriminate and restrict you of choice or possibilities?
Can a brand experience feel like an authentic experience? How can brands improve trust? What are ways that a brand can showcase their values? In this special episode of IBM thinkLeaders, recorded live at Cannes Lions, we are joined by Justin Shriber (Head of Marketing for LinkedIn Sales Solutions) & Reid Blackman (Founder & CEO of Virtue). We talk to Justin and Reid about navigating the customer experience, building authentic relationships, and whether platforms can empower one-to-one relationships. We also dive into the merits of the Dunbar Number and scaling relationship online, brand safety, data as currency, and when it might be appropriate to automate our communication.
We talk to Reid Blackman, founder of Virtue, about the ethical issues facing Big Tech. We discuss how Silicon Valley has a difficult time foreseeing pitfalls, how teaching ethics to developers is a major task, explainable AI, and how we develop products to mitigate ethical risks.
