AI’s Impact on Communication Evaluation + AGM

Evaluation is an important part of a communications strategy. With artificial intelligence playing a large role in all aspects of the public relations profession, what impact does it have when it comes to evaluation? This fireside chat will explore how communication professionals can use AI in evaluating a communications strategy, campaign, or other data such as website analytics. It will also delve into the ethics of using AI and the best practices.
