The New Arbiters of Taste

Sunday, 3/11 - 11:00am CST

Pinterest House @ Container Bar

It used to be that magazine editors dictated lifestyle trends for the world. With the democratization of content creation and new forms of distribution, individuals with great taste are now just as influential. Through AI and machine learning, platforms aren’t just enabling these new arbiters of taste, but they’re tapping into collective human intelligence of everyday tastemakers to power their own content and personalization engines. How can brands market in this new age of the tastemaker?

Join our panel moderated by Vikram Bhaskaran, Head of Market Development, Pinterest with Kate Barnett, CEO, Man Repeller, Anjelika Temple, CCO, Brit + Co and Michael Broukhim, Co-Founder, Co-CEO, FabFitFun.
