#MillenniumLive on Machine Learning vs. Human Intuition

#MillenniumLive welcomes you to our Keynote Panel series. In this week’s episode, we cover Machine Learning vs. Human Intuition: Finding the Optimal Balance for Successful Marketing Campaigns and Brand Recognition. From analyzing data to voice and payment technology, machine learning has been transforming the marketing industry and the role of the marketing leader for years. Executives continue to balance the use of technology within their teams and consumers are relying more and more on new technology to make their purchasing decisions.

This discussion is moderated by Clarence Lee of Cornell University, and panelists include Shari Hofer of John Wiley & Sons, Kim Schuy of Essilor of America, and Matthew Smith from Sterling National Bank. Go here to listen to the full podcast episode.

Shari Hofer

shari-hoferAs a senior marketing strategist, I create tactical plans that get company products noticed within target audiences. As an organizational leader, one of my biggest mantras is that excellence can happen without arrogance… by maintaining authenticity internally with staff teams and externally with customers and industry partners, leadership happens by example and genuine rapport with stakeholders becomes a core corporate value. With 20+ years of experience in pioneering corporate brand programs and communications that deliver revenue results, I drive programs through subject matter expertise in building marketing programs that deliver company and product recognition/affinity using emerging technologies. My reputation as a high-energy, resourceful marketing leader with exceptional integrity and passion for problem-solving allows me to achieve organizational goals while generating client demand.
