Get the Best Out of AI

A series of seminars designed and co-hosted by Oli Feldwick to help the Planning community go deeper into specific applied AI topics.

This series of talks and discussions is designed to go deeper into specific AI topics that have a direct relevance to the practice of Planning and Strategy. The format will include participation and a group exercise, along with a decent time for question & answer & discussion.

Oli Feldwick

I was, perhaps, destined to end up in advertising. Son of a planner and a qualitative researcher, my early years were spent watching ad-reels instead of postman pat. This was followed by a wasted youth of computer gaming, programming and tinkering. And then jobs in research, digital and integrated agencies. Now working at The&Partnership as Head of Innovation. As a Philosophy graduate, I worry about the ethics of advertising and think the industry is at an important turning point with digital marketing. I explored this theme in my 2016 Admap Essay, "The Uncanny Valley of Personalisation", which explored the pitfalls of personalisation in advertising and how to avoid them. I have since written a Dissertation for the IPA Excellence Diploma on “Unleashing Cyborg Creativity”. I also like trains, obscure walking tours, police procedurals and buying books that I will never get round to reading. I also cook a fabulous bolognese.

Testimonies

"It was packed with information and really helpful tips. I really enjoyed it and felt very inspired coming out of it."

"Fantastically useful. Oli is a great presenter and he provided really good understanding and practical advice on how to maximise the value of AI. Lots to think about and act upon."

"Oli’s session was incredibly insightful. A lot of information superbly conveyed. Left me wanting more, which is a good as there’s more to come!"

"Excellent session. I think Oli had some really concise and provocative ways to explaining GenAi’s strengths and weaknesses, lots to take away and think about. Definitely feel better prepared and armed to try new approaches in a more informed way."

"The content was helpful and relevant. The information was well organized. Best practices were actionable and easy to apply to everyday life. The speaker was true planner and truly knew about AI (as opposed to half-a expert with a couple of tricks)."
