This session will explore the use of Artificial Intelligence [AI] to enable personalized digital experiences across various vertical environments and how AI helps us to understand physical spaces in a way that is comparable to the online world. Occupancy Sensors, Computer Vision, Camera, RFID/LTE are all available tools for us to collect data and use data to create rule-based real-time triggers. These technologies help us to understand our audience like never before and to enable personalization while maintaining privacy.  This makes for powerful and memorable moments that are both context aware and measurable. These technical experts will break a complex topic down for simplicity - and share use cases to show us how it’s done.

Join this October Power Hour to learn about:

  • Learn the various AI options and when to use each type to provide personalized experiences
  • Understand the end user needs and evaluate the project goals to determine the best solutions
  • Identify the scope of the work involved in integration of AI tools as part of a broader digital signage and CMS deployment
