AI challenges in digital marketing

Computers will overtake humans with Artificial Intelligencein the next 100 years. When that happens , we need to make sure that the computers have goals aligned with ours. – Stephen King 


The advancement of computer systems in such a way that they are able to perform tasks by human intelligence and intellectual traits such as audio visual acknowledgement , decision making power , language translations and speech recognition and identification is known as Artificial Intelligence. It can also be termed as AI , Robotics, expert systems, machine learning and natural language processing devices. John Mcarthy was the first person to coin the term Artificial Intelligence and is called the father of AI. But the first innovation in terms of AI was around the 1950s by Newell and Simon. 

There are so far four types of artificial intelligence invented :


  • Reactive machines :

The kind of AI which isn’t supposed to store any data but is meant for only responses for different types of stimuli.


  • Limited memory :

it’s the type of machine learning when it uses the memory to learn and improve the overall spontaneous responses.


  • Theory of mind :

It’s a kind of expert system where it understands and copes up with other intelligent identities and attributes. 


  • Self awareness :

The most advanced among all of the so far invented AI’s as it understands human-like intelligence and is often found with the quality of self- awareness.

Lacks human touch

The talbots and chatbots will definitely provide the real time user experience and interaction like humans but even if they perform effectively 99% that remaining human touch of 1% will be a disappointment for the clients and oten this innovative technology will create a downfall in even an established organisation or company. 


High maintenance advancement 

No matter how amazing and how beneficial  technology or addition is , it surely is in a negative xone if it’s not cost effective. The maintenance cost of AI is often more than the overall revenue generation  and hence even the most prominent brands and businesses avoid this kind of technology. 

Not a user friendly technology
