#17 Martin Adams: Bringing Back Great Storytelling
In this episode, James speaks to Martin Adams, CEO of Codec, an award winning company which uses artificial intelligence to perfect marketing. Martin set up the company because of a desire to bring back great storytelling in advertising. The internet is full of tribe-like communities known as digital villages, and Codec uses data analysis to target them. Rather than replacing human creativity with AI, the company wants to bolster the creative process, offering insights that help brands develop better relationships with their audiences. Having won the ‘Best AI Product in Marketing’ award at the 2019 CogX tech festival, Martin says he feels “blessed” to be working in this field, finding a solution to a lack of empathy and emotional connection created by digital advertising.
