Event Description:

Using artificial intelligence and machine learning to create personalized messaging and customer experiences

Speaker:  Sherif Mityas, CIO and chief experience officer, TGI Friday's

A growing number of companies are using AI and machine learning to not only better understand their customers but also to create highly personalized experiences and messages.  One of DFW's leading pioneers in this journey is TGI Friday's.  In June 2016 TGI launched TGI Digital, a digital transformation project with the objective to reconnect with customers on a 1 to 1 basis and become an advisor helping customers answer the question, "What should we do tonight?"  TGI uses AI to achieve deep insight into their customers' preferences and life styles so that they can provide highly personalized and timely messaging.  TGI has seen a 500% increase in engagement with customers on social media channels since implementation.  Attend this fascinating case study presentation to learn:

  • What you need to think about and plan for beforehand
  • Identifying your best data to understand your customers and garnering insights
  • Opportunities, challenges, and risks with AI
  • Lessons learned - the good, the bad, and the ugly

Sherif Mityas is responsible for TGI Friday's global strategy, digital and technology efforts.  He has more than 20 years experience in the retail and hospitality industries in both senior consulting and executive industry roles.  Prior to joining TGI Friday's, he served as the managing partner for JS Consulting and as the CEO for Hollywood Video/Movie Gallery.  He received a BS degree in aerospace engineering from Boston University, a MS in mechanical engineering from Rensellaer Polytechnic Institute and a MBA from Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management.
