The Guardian’s old-article trick

“… this is a great idea, one worth replicating elsewhere. But it’s also a reminder of the power publishers have to use their article metadata to improve public understanding — and how little they use it. When one of your old stories is floating around social media in a way that causes confusion, you can do something about it.” Read More

Bitter lesson + better lesson = lesson

Many of you will remember the rules vs data debates from the early days of machine translation and image recognition. There is a similar debate currently going on in AI research. The main differences are the dramatic improvements in deep learning, facilitated by the availability of massive computing power. The current discussion seems more secular, and concerned with relative costs and efficiencies. This post, “Better lesson” is by Rodney Brooks, but also checkout Rich Sutton’s “Bitter Lesson”, which Brooks links to. Both posts are short and very accessible. Read More

Connections are core to digital experience initiatives at every level. At the top, your organization needs connections with customers that are genuine, consistent, on-target, and fast. Delivering this requires that connections with partners, and employees, have similar qualities and smooth supporting processes. And technology systems also need to be connected in ways that enhance the experiences of each of your audiences. Jeff Cram will help you get a handle on how all this connects!

A106. Creating Connected Experiences

Stop acquiring more marketing technology and start better connecting it to your digital customer experiences. This session helps you realize the full potential of your existing martech investment by better aligning it to your customer experience strategy and digital execution. Drawing from decades of experience leading complex, digital experience initiatives, Cram and team share practical frameworks and models to find and fix the cracks in your digital customer experience and better connect your marketing technology to support the customer journey.

Monday, April 29: 4:15 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

It hasn’t always been easy for governance and compliance issues to get the attention they need in organizations. This has been especially true with regard to digital content.

There are customer experience, brand, market reach, and operational benefits as well. Join expert Kristina Podnar to learn more…

With the growing number of compliance requirements and international regulations, can you successfully deliver a digital strategy with repeatability and integrity?

Jay Brodsky is a senior executive equally versed in business and technology, who has been through multiple digital transformations. This is just the type of person you want for a large-scale digital transformation initiative, and he must like them because he recently signed up to take on another at the American Geophysical Union. Learn what Jay and AGU are thinking and planning for their modern digital membership organization.

B201. Building a modern digital membership organization

American Geophysical Union (AGU), a global scientific association promoting discovery in Earth and space science for the benefit of humanity, is on a 3-year path to implement a modern, flexible digital framework supporting its efforts. AGU’s vision to “galvanize the collaborative work of their members and communicate their work and its power to ensure a sustainable future” is empowered by digital tools. But key to this transformation is the adoption of a new culture and operating model for AGU to become a “platform for science,” delivering services wherever discovery and connections take place. AGU is rethinking the experience of its 25,000-person annual conference; building new ways to interact with the content of 20 peer-reviewed journals, a science magazine, and numerous books; fostering collaboration and dialogue; and doing all of this with the highest ethical standards and an eye to diversity and inclusion. This presentation speaks to this journey, discussing some of the parallels between our digital transformation and that of others adopting membership-based models to replace their traditional, subscription-oriented businesses, and addressing to the challenges faced along this path.

Tuesday, April 30: 10:45 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Personalization is hard, and not getting it right isn’t an option — we’ve all experienced what that can look like. Colin Eagan provides a road map — what an “experience designer” needs to do throughout the process from technology selection through to iterative improvement. 

B104. Designing Personalized Experiences 

It’s now estimated that some 45% of organizations have attempted to personalize their own homepage in some way — but fewer than a third think it’s actually “working.” If that scares you, you’re not alone: As personalization technology races from niche to mainstream, the design community is racing to catch up. It’s time for a UX intervention. This highly practical talk focuses on the role of experience designer in influencing user-centered personalization design, including technology selection, user data models, and, of course, wireframes. Specifically, it covers what the well-versed designer should know about the latest personalization technology; what to do when you get a request to “do personalization” (either at your organization or your clients’); how to fit personalized user content into a larger information design system; how to use your role in UX to influence technical product selection; grow to translate actual user needs into a real-time user data model (“living personas”); wireframe-level guidelines for introducing personalized components in web and email; and creating a measurement framework based on “quick-wins” and iterative improvement.

Monday, April 29: 2:15 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
