Digital Marketing Meetup #1: The Rise of AI

Digital Marketing Meetup #1: The Rise of AI

It is estimated that AI will drive 95% of all customer interactions by 2025. So it’s no surprise that over the last 12 months, AI has been one of the most discussed topics around the world.

Tools like Runway, Jasper and Midjourney have dominated these conversations and it seems, at least with the introduction of OpenAI's ChatGPT, there is no avoiding artificial intelligence. Companies are feverishly searching for meaningful uses for it - however with so many options and opportunities where do you start? How do you leverage AI to drive growth for your business as well as for time savings via automation, and on top of that, which tools are best suited for your business?

In this talk, Bastian will guide you through the various AI tools you should be considering, the strategies to drive business growth, and supply plenty of practical examples along the way.

  3. Prompting is how humans can talk to AI. It's a

    way to express what we want and how we want it, usually done with words. Prompt(ing)?
  4. pa.ag @peakaceag 9 Need help and/or inspiration? Try DS Prompt

  5. pa.ag @peakaceag 10 Creating AI prompts is a key skill

    for any generative AI Whoever formulates the best, most creative and most unique AI prompts will create the best content (and save AI/API credits) Source: https://promptbase.com There is a marketplace (promptbase.com), which is dedicated to trading prompts – use it for inspiration!
  6. pa.ag @peakaceag 11 Recommended use-cases for generative image AI Even

    though we‘re still at an early stage, the uses mentioned below are very much possible today and allows for time and cost savings, as well as efficiency gains: Header images e.g., for blog posts or newsletters Social images e.g., for your various feeds such as LinkedIn, Insta, etc. Images for slides e.g., for pitch presentations, slide decks or story boards Image modification e.g., clean-ups, object removal, up-scaling, etc.
  7. pa.ag @peakaceag 12 Interesting but equally scary use-case from Osaka

    Univ. “We propose a new method based on a diffusion model (DM) to reconstruct images from human brain activity obtained via fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging)” Source: https://pa.ag/3ZBaHvG Reconstructing visual experiences from human brain activity offers a unique way to understand how the brain represents the world, and to interpret the connection between computer vision models and our visual system.
  8. pa.ag @peakaceag 14 Voice- & face cloning is already very

    much possible Granted, it’s not perfect just yet, but it’ll do the trick. Solutions such as ElevenLabs.io or frameworks such as DeepFaceLab are available for free/at-minimum cost, to everybody: Source: https://pa.ag/3mIlAgF Good afternoon, everybody, this is President Obama speaking!

  9. pa.ag @peakaceag 15 AI-powered scam caused $622k fraud In China,

    AI-powered face-swapping was used to impersonate a friend during a live video call; the scammers received a transfer of 4.3 million Yuan: Source: https://pa.ag/3WH8wpz
  10. pa.ag @peakaceag 16 AI-generated image caused a brief stock market

    dip A fake image showing an explosion near the Pentagon was shared by multiple Twitter (yeah, X… I know) accounts, causing confusion and a brief dip in the stock market: Source: https://pa.ag/434n6db
  11. pa.ag @peakaceag 18 What is a large language model (good

    at)? Source: https://pa.ag/3ZDGZpE A LLM is a (deep) learning algorithm that can recognize, summarize, translate, predict and generate text and other content based on knowledge gained from massive datasets.
  12. pa.ag @peakaceag 19 This is very important to understand: These

    LLMs don’t “write” anything. They generate text based on the number of parameters used in their training, using content they've encountered before.
  13. pa.ag @peakaceag 20 Extremely important: Training data quality “A Comprehensive

    Analysis of Datasets Used to Train GPT-1, GPT-2, GPT-3, GPT-NeoX- 20B, Megatron-11B, MT-NLG, […]“ Source: https://pa.ag/3UId4KA There are many more... ▪ Megatron-Turing NLG (Microsoft & Nvidia): 530 billion ▪ Pathways Language Model 2 (Google): 540 billion ▪ WuDao 2.0 (Beijing Academy of AI): 1.5 trillion
  14. pa.ag @peakaceag 21 Problems & challenges with using large language

    models Aside from misinformation, offensive content and hallucination, there’s lots more to know: Source: https://pa.ag/3tuOwJ9 Computing power The quality of the results improves as the size of the LLMs increases. Gains are incremental, while costs increase exponentially. Biased training data If biased data is used, the system will likely show the same bias when making decisions in practice. Environmental impact Training a large transformer model produces 5,680% more carbon emissions than one human per year. Static perspectives Large language models are usually trained once and used over long periods of time.
  15. pa.ag @peakaceag 22 A real-world “bias example” from Amazon The

    company developed an AI to help scale recruiting – which didn’t work so well… Source: https://pa.ag/4228GtP Amazon’s computer models were trained to vet applicants by observing patterns in resumes submitted to the company over a 10-year period. Most came from men, a reflection of male dominance across the tech industry. […] In effect, Amazon’s system taught itself that male candidates were preferable. It penalised resumes that included the word “women’s” and downgraded graduates of two all-women’s colleges.
  16. pa.ag @peakaceag 24 Source: https://pa.ag/3yrqQYn theresanaiforthat.com – yup… there is!

  37. pa.ag @peakaceag 55 Microsoft to broadly roll out their MS365

  40. pa.ag @peakaceag 65 Question is: will these hallucinations ever go

    away? “It’s inherent in the mismatch between the technology and the proposed use cases,” says Emily Bender, a linguistics professor & director of the University of Washington’s Computational Linguistics Laboratory Source: https://pa.ag/3PqP0Mh LLMs are designed to predict the next word – naturally there will be occasions where the model does this inaccurately.
  41. pa.ag @peakaceag 66 Like it or not, SGE isn't going

    anywhere! According to Google, "User feedback has been very positive so far.” While it’s exciting new technology, we’ve constantly been bringing in AI innovations into search for the past few years, and this is the next step in the journey. Sundar Pichai, CEO Google & Alphabet
  42. pa.ag @peakaceag 67 Chrome will summarise entire articles for you

    “SGE while browsing“ will also most probably take some of your actual website traffic away. It might also negatively impact soft metrics such as time-on-site (causing visitors to no longer stay as long): Source: https://pa.ag/3qNNMRD
  43. Your marketing team needs to be thinking about adapting their

    SEO strategy, as obtaining organic traffic is likely to get much more difficult in the future. Why should you care?
  44. Organic search results will change, but so will ad creation

    and the integration of ads into the search results. Google to introduce generative AI for ads as well
  45. Built from the ground up with true multimodality, high efficiency

    in using external tools/APIs, memory capabilities, etc. Google also is working on a brand-new model: Gemini
  46. A multimodal AI can ingest knowledge/input from multiple sources (e.g.,

    text, audio, video, gesture, …) and utilise it to solve tasks involving any modality Multimodality?
