The Differentiation Between AI & Machine Learning

AD TECH

“AI is going to be the phrase on everyone’s lips at dmexco, just as it has dominated this year’s media headlines. However, despite the excitement conjured by images of robotic futures, aside from IBM Watson and a small number of other companies, the ad tech industry is not yet using AI to its full potential. AI terminology has been adopted by marketers because it sounds impressive, but it’s machine learning that is being used in it’s place. The two have become synonymous with one another, but it’s important to recognize they are not the same. AI is a computer’s aptitude to think without programmed instructions. The focus for marketing needs to be on the algorithms that underpin AI, which make programmatic advertising possible. That is not to undervalue the importance of machine learning, but marketers need to refer to the tech correctly and differentiate the key concepts so that consumers have the opportunity to understand it.”
