Episode Description

Facial recognition systems that can verify a person’s identity have been around for years with security cameras and criminal databases. Now with big data analytics and artificial intelligence, facial recognition software is about to very intrusive. When you combine facial recognition technology with deep learning, you can identify a person half a mile away in a crowd of a million people anywhere. The risks to privacy and civil liberties are substantial with the technology being used to identify and track people covertly, even remotely, and on a mass scale, for example, identifying individuals at lawful protests. Emails are being used by marketers to communicate exclusive offers, customer support, order tracking, useful articles, apologies, warnings and customer service. I’ll show you how for every $1.00 spent on email marketing, your return on investment could be $44.25. Email conversion rates can be three times higher than social media with a 17% higher value in the conversion.
