Webinar: AI…Friend or Foe? Is Your Agency Ready?

webinar description

2017 was the year of AI. Suddenly, it seems like every marketer has an artificial intelligence strategy, every tech company is pitching its AI capabilities, and every agency is boasting about its AI capabilities. Let’s get real though. How are AI and machine learning impacting the communications field? How are PR professionals using it, and what applications of it will be most relevant over the course of the decade? How will it change media relations, and how won’t it? Will AI be used to craft releases, create pitch strategies, generate content, and even serve as your next boss? These panelists will give a sense of what’s really coming in 2018 and beyond.
