How is AI going to change the way we work?
AI is already reshaping our work environment. A few years back AI started to replace routine blue-collar activities like factory production activities, now AI is replacing white-collar activities like digital marketing, finance, etc. e.g. Google introduced automated bidding on the search ads. Till the time this feature was launched, bidding for PPC ads that appear on Google search was a regular activity in the life of Search Engine Marketing professionals. Now with automated bidding in place, they need to focus on other work areas. Similarly, many activities are evolving, and Human beings will have to focus on ideation, strategy and such other activities that an AI cannot perform efficiently as of yet.
Do AI and data protection go together?
With so many instances of data leaks, it is natural to be worried about data security and protection, especially in the AI world. Most of the companies ensure that data protection is integrated into the applications right from the design phase. So for such companies and applications, it would be safe to say that AI and data protection go together. However, not all companies across the world may follow such practices. There are several factors like the Government policies, corporate responsibilities, etc. that would determine what all information would be captured and shared with others. So a user needs to share critical information with only those apps that they trust.
What is Digital Marketing & Different Types of Digital Marketing?
Digital marketing is a way of creating awareness and recognition for your brand or product/services through digital channels. e.g. The advertisements that you see while browsing the internet are digital. While Digital marketing has many other components, this method of serving ads to you is a part of digital marketing.
Digital Marketing can be classified into the following types.
- Owned Media e.g. Website, Email
- Earned Media e.g. Organic Search (SEO), Organic Social
- Paid Media e.g. Ads on Google, Facebook
What is the scope of AI in the 21st century?
AI would become more prevalent in our everyday lives. e.g. Today you use Google maybe only for searching for something by typing or speaking on your phone. Soon, you will be doing more visual searches by pointing your camera at the object you need more information about or to buy products. When such changes happen, the ecosystem around has to adapt. In the above case, the role of a search engine optimisation (SEO) professional would change. i.e. while s/he was more focused on text and images till date to rank #1 on Google for your searches, soon they will have to explore about optimisation for such visual searches. Similarly, AI would transform many activities and jobs across industries. Be ready to adapt.
