Horse. Shit. I applied mathematical certainty in the choice of those two words.

The only way to achieve mathematical certainty is to create lowest common denominator advertising which generally speaking does not work. What AI will do is what all programmatic has done for the last 10 years which is nothing more than real time A/B testing with iterative results. In other words it will optimize the message one word at a time until it reaches the desired KPI CTR. None of this ensures conversion. In the end it’s most likely one bit getting another bot to click which it was going to do anyone.

You guys ever do the drosophila fly experiment in middle school science class? Essentially, you start off with one breeding pair, and as the population expands along the Malthusian curve, the flies will replicate much of what happens in human societies—including famines, plagues, and wars. There’s always a grand collapse, of course, usually preceded by the colony reaching a fever pitch of activity and conflict—as if the insects sense an ending is near. Anyway, not sure why the back-and-forth above puts me in mind of that, but it does.

Like every ad-based company these days, it’s all smoke and mirrors. Human copywriters write the actual copy and then the company feeds it through a thesaurus-type algorithm that that selects the most “dynamic” words (those which have shown to provide the most optimal conversion results). In other words, it’s testing via computers. That’s all. And as usual, the results don’t guarantee conversions. But hey, it’s the latest thing and for agencies desperate for scraps, it gives them another temporary tool to sell to clients in the hopes of retaining them.

Did their AI write that? Because it’s garbage.

“Certainty”? What is that supposed to mean to human beings? “Advertising is principally concerned with persuasion — and that is an art, not a science.”
