We're now counting down the days until Magento Imagine 2017 kicks off at the Wynn in Las Vegas. It's a legendary event that has proven to be an incredibly inspiring and informative while also managing to be a whole lot of fun.
The most popular highlight for attendees at Imagine is the people there. It's a very collaborative environment. I'm looking forward to spending time with old friends catching up on both the professional and personal side.
Beating the Competition with Cognitive Commerce
It'll be my 5th time at Imagine and I'm proud to say that this time around I have the privilege of presenting at a breakout session on Wednesday 5th at 11AM in La Tache.
I will be talking on Artificial Intelligence, and machine learning in particular. How it’s going to revolutionise every sector is the talk of the tech industry. So what is it, what do you need to know and how can you use it as a tool to get an edge? My session will look at some of the recent developments and use cases, and how we can learn to apply them to our ecommerce businesses. Topics will range from intelligent search, to customer service channels of Facebook Messenger and Amazon Alexa, and to finding swimming pools in photos with IBM Watson.
I'll also be partaking in the Magento Imagine Community Run. If you haven't signed up yet, check out Wagento.com.
Look forward to seeing you then!
