The State of MarTech: Artifical Intelligence VS. The Human Touch

handshake with robotic arm
Tuesday, November 1, 2016 - 8:30pm to 11:30pm

Digital marketing is evolving quickly and changing the way brands and agencies work. One of the biggest evolutions in the industry is the integration of new and innovative marketing technologies (MarTech) and the speed at which they are changing the digital landscape. The question now is, how far can MarTech go? Will it eventually be able to completely take over ALL functions of traditional, human marketers? Will Artificial Intelligence (AI) be able to make all the decisions, and effectively run a marketing campaign without human intervention?
 
OCAD University's Imagination Catalyst in partnership with Qoints is thrilled to invite you to a panel discussion (or debate, depending on points of view) by some of the most prominent and intelligent minds in the Canadian marketing game. They will share their thoughts on what the future of marketing looks like, and what role MarTech will play.

Alter Audio

The Alter Audio Research Project ran from 2005 - 07 and contains a variety of digital musical experiences that allow users to engage creatively in sound and music composition in both urban and mountain environments. Users can engage in composition over time and a live musical collaboration. The project creates interesting theoretical, methodological, and technological questions. The Alter Audio project inquires into how different people see different meaning and environmental relevance in different types of sounds - music, ambient, effects, etc. The project tests how different individuals will combine sounds in response to the technical organization of the project, in response to working as individuals vs. as members of a collaborative team, and in projects that are live versus over time.

Dalton Higgins is a National Magazine Award-winning journalist, broadcaster and author who has written six books that interweave the worlds of digital culture, hip hop and popular culture into one potent mix. He is also one of Canada’s foremost experts on hip hop, the leading youth sub-culture of this generation.

Her varied art background gives her a multiplicity of viewpoints into contemporary art, ideas and themes.  She is particularly interested in how art practices can critically reflect and respond to our society and how they ultimately shape our culture.

Jessica Karuhanga is an artist currently based in Toronto, Canada. Her practice undulates between performance, video, drawing and sculptural processes. She holds a BFA Honors from The University of Western Ontario and a MFA from University of Victoria. Her visual art and performances have been presented at various centres nationally including Royal BC Museum, Deluge Contemporary Art, Art Mûr, Whippersnapper Gallery, OCAD U Student Gallery, Videofag, Electric Eclectics, Nia Centre for the Arts, and The Drake Hotel. Karuhanga was featured in FADO Performance Art Centre's 2014 Emerging Artist Series at Xpace Cultural Centre.
