Moderator: Christophe Jammet, Director Social Media + Mobile, DDG
There’s a new crop of creative companies surfacing in our industry that are being led by design-thinking. These creative consultants, innovation and transformation agents, and creative studios are often helmed by ex-agency folks realizing their own vision of marketing through new ventures, or traditional shops reinventing themselves to better reflect rapidly changing trends and client needs. So, as these companies pioneer a new kind of marketing, what role does design play in their work with clients? Are there common threads among these agency vigilantes? Hear from a panel of design experts as they discuss the experience of practicing design and promoting design principles and methods in marketing beyond the agency world. 

11:40 - 12:00 PM

You’ve heard news about Facebook and Microsoft creating Artificial Intelligence “bots” that allow customers to interact with organizations without requiring human interaction. And the latest Gartner Symposium/ITxpo predicted that by 2020, autonomous software agents outside of human control will participate in five percent of all economic transactions. In this session, attendees will get hands on and create their own bot, and understand possibilities that a bot can open to the organization.

What is a bot? How do bots work? We will demystify the concepts that make a bot function behind the scenes. Showcase of existing bots: the good, the bad and the ugly, including problems bots are currently facing as well as the power they can give to individuals and organizations.

Hands on:
Create & showcase your own web-based bot Understand the power your bots could bring to business.

The New Breed of Brand Intelligence
Kim Dunbar, Digital Agency Lead, IBM Watson Partner Program &
Marc Blanchard, Global Head of Experience Design, Havas Worldwide
Marketers are collecting more data than ever about consumers, but without the right technologies to effectively analyze and action all of this information, very little proves valuable. To combat fruitless data collection, IBM and the Havas Group have launched Havas Cognitive to bring the cognitive computing power of IBM Watson to marketers -- and ultimately help them develop marketing campaigns and products better tailored to individual consumers.

Kim and Jason will talk about how marketers can leverage artificial intelligence and move closer to one-on-one audience segmentation as well as examples of how cognitive technology transforms business.
