Beware: The rise of content robots

It’s Monday morning, the year is 2020…you check your iRobot for the latest business results, tell it to send you the latest campaign changes. You grab your coffee and begin to dictate the revisions to the content your robot created during the evening. The distant hum from the computers fades into the background and you wonder, “does content creation get any better than this?” Although this scenario might be a stretch, some of the greatest minds today such as Bill Gates, Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking have made stark warnings about a world where robots rule. From self-driving cars, drone delivery, and wearables that learn your personal habits, there is little doubt that the future of artificial intelligence will impact every aspect of our lives, including content creation.

What can the audience expect to learn?

Dr. Andrew Bredenkamp explores some of the amazing new technologies shaping the future of content creation, machine translation and content optimization. He also provides some practical guidance helping organizations compete in the new content economy.
