On generative AI use cases in retail and CPG: “In terms of content generation … instead of just creating one piece of content for one particular use case, we can use the AI to create thousands of versions very, very quickly. And we can also create that content in multiple languages as well. One of the things that I'm particularly interested here in the U.S. market is the Spanish language, considering I work in baby formula, and one in three babies in the U.S. are of Hispanic heritage or have Hispanic heritage. We want to do way more things in Spanish, but to do that, we would effectively be doubling our costs if we did everything from scratch. But using AI, we can do all of this stuff and get to mass customization and personalization, without having to double the team size and double all of the budget. 

“The other piece where this gets really cool, and gets me really excited, is when talking about Spanish, how do I get to the native dialect of Spanish for every single region or zone within the U.S. that I'm targeting? So I'm not just talking English and broad American or broad New Jersey. How do I get to every single cluster that I want to go after the Midwest, New York, LA, etc., and speak in that local language at scale? And present my content in a way that really resonates with the audience?”
