“The future of personalization will be driven by machine learning. It is what empowers marketers to act on vast stores of data to understand each visitor’s true interests and intent – and then serve up meaningful, individualized, in-the-moment experiences. For many marketers, though, there are a lot of questions about machine learning – including how it works, the data that drives it, the marketer’s role in the process, and how it can complement manual, rule-based personalization. At our Summit and beyond, we want to introduce transparency to this topic, while also exploring personalization challenges, best practices and, success stories. We look forward to discussing and demonstrating the crucial role personalization plays in building customer engagement, loyalty and conversions,” said Evergage CEO Karl Wirth.
