Once a concept of science fiction, now a reality, digital singularity comes from the exponential increase in technology, intelligence and capability. As marketers, we embrace options – but the dizzying array of choices and channels can lead us to “paralysis by analysis.” How can we make the most intelligent decisions to move forward? Join #STLDIGSYM as we ask industry experts in creative, technology, content, data & analytics to help navigate the imminent arrival of singularity.
