Generative AI, better known by OpenAI’s ChatGPT in Microsoft’s Bing search engine, is suddenly everywhere all at once, shaking up whole industries and offering to optimize pretty much every single business function and solve all your problems. But it won’t make your coffee or do your taxes. Yet.
Still, what is generative AI all about, and why is everyone talking about it?
On Thursday, June 8 at 2p EST, Multichannel Merchant will host an informational webinar on the subject: “Generative AI: The Genie Is Out of the Bottle.” The title alludes to the fact that some very notable tech industry veterans, including the CEO of OpenAI himself, have expressed concerns about generative AI’s potential for harm if in the wrong hands.
At the same time, the capabilities and possibilities of generative AI are being touted everywhere you turn, and the bandwagon of solutions for retail and ecommerce has gotten seriously overcrowded. So, there’s no going back at this point.
Our expert panel includes Stephanie Urban, VP of Ecommerce for Camuto Group; Jason Goldberg, Chief Commerce Strategy Officer for Publicis Groupe; Eli Blee-Goldman, co-founder of Character VC and an investor in generative AI startups; and Ben Sharir, an ecommerce consultant to Fortune 500 firms with Droidox.
Together, we’ll help unpack the burgeoning subject from a variety of angles, including actions of the major players (Microsoft, Google, Amazon, etc.); the types of applications generative AI is being used for, with a focus on retail and ecommerce; which retailers and brands have already adopted it (Walmart, Levi Strauss, Elizabeth Arden, Tommy Hilfiger, etc.); the types of concerns that are being raised, and from what quarters.
Whether you’ve already jumped into gen AI with both feet, find yourself kicking the tires, are wondering if it makes sense for your organization, or you’re suffering from FOMO over the whole thing, this webinar is for you! Click here to register.
