Explore attendees listen to a keynote speech by UCB’s Bharat Tewarie

UCB uses AI to assess unmet needs of more than half a million patients

Bharat Tewarie, UCB Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, gave the conference’s keynote address on his company's work with Quid and Artis Ventures. Using Quid, the project analyzed more than 500,000 anonymous public posts in order to better understand the needs of patients living with chronic conditions. “Artificial intelligence for us,” he said, “is a way to listen to patients in their own voice, using their lens.”

Wunderman leverages 17 years worth of consumer feedback to drive client impact

Anna-Lee Bridgstock, Digital Performance Director at Wunderman UK, demonstrated how AI-backed insights can drive real world impact. When Ikea came to their agency looking for creative ways to better engage with parents, her team went straight to the source. They worked with Quid and parenting website Mumsnet to analyze 50 million rows of anonymous comments in just a few days. The result? A campaign strategy built on an innovative solution to one of the most pressing concerns expressed by parents. Learn more by watching her full presentation here:
