Different kinds of AI
In this first lesson, we will recap the different types of AI that are relevant to us as growth professionals.

In this second less we’re going to talk about the different kinds of data that are helpful to us as growth professionals and what kinds of prospect experiences this data can create.

Practical applications in the market today
In this lesson, we will talk through the types of AI we see in the market today. This is driven by what I see out in the market today. Some of this is a recap from the first course, and all of it is something you might see from your in-house team or a vendor today. By the end of this lesson, you will be able to discern the different approaches we have seen in the market today and better evaluate which ones are right for you and your business
- Learn what the different "winner takes all" approaches are and where the most value is applied.
- Learn what the different "personalization" approaches are in the market.
- Learn what different "product and content recommendation" approaches are in the market.
Structuring experiments to use AI
We’ve now covered the different types of AI available in the market, creating intuition about each. Let’s continue with the course and talk through some examples of how you might apply those different approaches to typical problems each of us might face in our jobs. At the end of this final lesson, you will have developed more operational, working knowledge of how to apply AI to your site so that you can better engage your in house or vendor resources on Monday back at the office.
