‘Brand Identity in the Age of Human-Machine Communication’

Our ability and willingness in adapting to technological progress is picking up speed from innovation to innovation. Artificial intelligence, too, has already been more firmly anchored in everyday life than is consciously perceived: Voice assistants such as Siri, Alexa and Cortana abolish the boundaries in human-machine communication since we now talk with devices on a regular basis and without much hesitation.

Frank Bachér gives insights into the opportunities, challenges and tasks for brand communication.
