In a recent article about the changing role that AI plays in digital marketing, author Janine Pollack writes that Artificial Intelligence and marketing-based analytic data models have made it possible to do things that marketers have talked about for decades. The conversation, she states, has become a reality thanks to on-demand computing power, increasingly connected consumers, and advances in AI.
In fact, by the end of this year, 20% of companies are expected to have dedicated workers that monitor and invest into AI.
And according to Boston Consulting Group, as referenced in Pollack’s article, “Brands that create personalized experiences by integrating advanced digital technologies and proprietary data for customers are seeing revenue increase by 6% to 10%—two to three times faster than those that don’t.”

Microsoft will invest $1 billion into carbon reduction and removal technologies
The software giant plans to offset all the emissions it produced since 1975.
Microsoft plans to establish a $1 billion fund dedicated to “carbon reduction, capture, and removal technologies,” amid a broader commitment to clean up the software giant’s emissions across its corporate history by 2050.
It’s one of the largest funding commitments ever to methods of sucking carbon dioxide out of the air, which most research shows will be a necessary part of any plan to prevent catastrophic levels of global warming.
