The Shop is at the intersection of communications, marketing, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and the things you can create with them, good and bad. A place to learn what AI is and how to integrate it into your life and business. How to use new computer vision technology built to immerse you in a situation or take you to a completely new environment. There are all kinds of things to learn and build at the Shop.
Our goals are simple and massive
PR, marketing and communications managers at brands, agencies, not-for-profits, government and private industry who share a range of interest in AI, XR & disinformation. From the curious to a potential change-agent in their own organization.
Our content is the bricks in a path showing communicators and marketers how to create an organization powered by 21st century technology.
Not to mention the nuts and bolts of writing, media management and events. As well as video production in 2D and 3D.
Building upon my successes in marketing and public relations, I went back to school to earn my Master of Science in Global Strategic Communication from Loyola University Chicago. My focus was on communication strategy, artificial intelligence, content creative, virtual, mixed and augmented realities. I think good communicators should tell stories and find opportunity using the tools of the time. Plus, I became fascinated by computational propaganda—Cambridge Analytica, Myanmar, Thanksgiving in New York, 2015 and much more. I also completed an MIT certificate program on AI as a business strategy.
Now, I’m learning how to think and code like a data scientist. I learned how to use the tools of data scientists at Northwestern University’s Data Science Bootcamp, a six-month, 480-hour data science certificate program. API’s, MySQL, visualizations, analytics, Python and what seemed like everything in between.
