LAC 2017 – Speaker Interview with Jonathan Epstein of Sentient Technologies
Last week iGB Affiliate spoke with the CMO of Sentient Technologies, Jonathan Epstein. Jon gave them a few insights into artificial intelligence ahead of his talk on disruptive technologies on Saturday at LAC 2017.
Jonathan Epstein is the chief marketing officer of Sentient Technologies, one of the best-funded independent artificial intelligence company. In that role, he oversees all marketing strategy and execution for Sentient’s two Intelligent Commerce products: Sentient Ascend, the AI-powered CRO solution which has ushered in the era of massively multivariate testing, and Sentient Aware, which uses AI to create product-driven customer experiences for the world’s leading retailers.
Artificial intelligence is enabling new – and better – ways of finding and winning customers. The affiliate marketing and e-commerce winners and losers of the next decade will be determined in large part by how retailers leverage AI (or not) to better personalize and optimize their landing pages and customer interactions.
iGB: HOW IS YOUR TOPIC RELEVANT TO THE GAMING INDUSTRY?
Jon: Affiliate marketers that are able to master the use of artificial intelligence to win customers for their clients will have a profound advantage over those using legacy techniques. AI promises to bring new levels of profitability to affiliate marketers that utilize it correctly.
Artificial intelligence is enabling new – and better – ways of finding and winning customers. The affiliate marketing and e-commerce winners and losers of the next decade will be determined in large part by how retailers leverage AI (or not) to better personalize and optimize their landing pages and customer interactions. Attendees to this session will get an overview of how AI is already reshaping affiliate marketing and e-commerce today, and what they can look for from AI solutions just around the corner.
iGB: WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU HOPE DELEGATES GET OUT OF YOUR SESSION?
Jon: How they can use AI today (vs. 5 years from now) to impact the key drivers of their affiliate programs – customer acquisition and conversion.
iGB: WHY CHOOSE THIS EVENT AS YOUR PLATFORM TO VOICE YOUR FINDINGS?
Jon: The models of affiliate marketing mean that the performance lifts that AI can bring to the discipline go straight to the bottom line. We see the affiliate marketing segment as a key adopter and beneficiary of AI technologies, and LAC 2017 brings together the leaders from a leading sector of affiliate marketing.
iGB: HOW DO YOU PLAN ON MAXIMISING YOUR TIME AT THE EVENT?
Jon: Our goals are to use the event to meet and learn from affiliate marketing leaders in the gaming sector as well as leaders in the gaming sector itself. I hope to meet and network with these leaders, and learn more about the challenges they share with other marketers, with other affiliate marketers, and those that are unique to LAC.

1xBet to share vision for betting’s future at iGB Live!/iGB Affiliate Amsterdam
‘A glimpse into the future and a chance to see what the industry will be like tomorrow’ is how Alex Sommers, Director of Affiliate Marketing at 1xBet, described the opportunities that he believes will be available to visitors attending the forthcoming iGB Live!/iGB Affiliate Amsterdam which is taking place across 28 September – 1 October at the RAI, Amsterdam.
The leading online brand which is the Diamond Sponsor for the affiliate event series, believes the long gap between major in-person gaming events has made industry professionals hungry for knowledge and networking. He explained: “We are confident that brands will be looking to the future. There was a long pause between major exhibitions, and we’re all clearly gathering here for big plans. And given that such a variety of companies will be represented in one place, it seems that we will discuss all aspects of the betting industry in general. Starting from the work undertaken by brands during the conditions that were in place last year, and ending with the new challenges that will face us.”
Presenting a compelling and passionate case for in-person and the reasons why the industry will be out in force at the Amsterdam-based shows, he argued: “Of course technology allows you to arrange a call with partners on the other side of the world in just a couple of clicks, but we are convinced that live interaction is a much more enjoyable method of communication. We are all human beings who enjoy interacting, communicating and meeting at events such as exhibitions.
“Moreover, at large events, there is always a festive atmosphere and the whole scale of the industry is felt. These emotions cannot be conveyed in the same way via virtual meetings. We’ve made big plans and look forward to meeting old acquaintances.”
The focus is firmly on partnerships both existing and new. “Many meetings with current partners are planned plus we also expect to meet new faces – all the time discussing interesting proposals and ideas ‘ he stated.
“Exhibition days are challenging but incredibly interesting. Our staff get up early in the morning and return late at night. And in the meantime – dozens of meetings and negotiations are planned. Such events help to unite our team even more, we get to not only know our competitors better but also ourselves. Therefore, we look at iGB only in the most positive way. We look forward to our trip to Amsterdam and invite everyone to chat and discuss partnership opportunities with us. There are very specific areas in which we will act, but we like to keep our cards close to our chest – what we can divulge now though is that people will be pleasantly surprised as we share our vision of innovations that will be introduced in the field of betting!”
