After a sellout debut at last year's Vivid Ideas Exchange in Sydney, we're thrilled to announce our 2017 session - Marketing To The Machines: Why Algorithms Will Define The Future Of Everything. Similar to last year, this ideas-based breakfast will host We Are Social’s global consultant, Simon Kemp, as co-presenter alongside our managing director, Suzie Shaw.

“Algorithms determine everything from the optimum kitten story to reframing ethics and morality. We’ll examine how they can help solve some of life’s most existential questions,” Suzie told the media this week. “It’s a big order for breakfast as we’ll be exploring the powerful and all-pervasive nature of algorithms: what they are, where they’ve come from and where they're going tomorrow.”

This is Simon Kemp’s second consecutive appearance at Vivid Ideas, after co-presenting 2016’s data-driven storytelling session. As well as working with We Are Social and authoring its annual global digital report, he founded Kepios and heads up APAC for Contagious Insider Consulting.

If you're interested in joining our team for a riveting morning of marketing insights and like-minded business professionals, feel free to book here. Tickets are $20 (plus booking fee) and include breakfast. We hope to see you there!
