Although Elon Musk warns everyone for A.I., he founded an open-source start-up and with his team (mainly Tesla related) managed to beat the worldchamp in a 1 on 1 Dota2 game with his bot, which self-learned the game from scratch. To give a bit of context about Dota2 and its complexity: the game has around 100 characters of which each and everyone of them has its own powers and moves. thus, to say at least, very complex. It takes 1 year to learn all the characters and 8 years of game play to become a pro. That puts things in perspective, doesn’t it?
Elon knows his marketing, for sure. While everyone is yelling about how its going to be an AI-first world in a few years, he pulls the marketing strategy of spreading ‘fear’, one of the most profound human feelings one can experience. Meanwhile, he’s training his own bots. After all, he’s just a businessman with a means to an end. Don’t get me wrong. He’s intent is good, but reality is an economic game.

Hmm. Amazon. Playstation. Prime video. Seems like a good match, right? The big screen. Right into the gaming community, launched, to people with a kinda binge-like attitude. Clever stuff but it seems so obvious right? Going to people with a big screen and it makes sense to answer demand on all platforms? Right? Well… there’s more to it. Gaming customers or customers with a decent hardware, are more open to high-end and more demanding virtual/digital/visual products that needs that hardware acceleration. Why only use that huge investment for gaming only? They’re the people that have everything in place already. Get it? :) - need to focus on 6 types of gamers. Have fun ;)
boom!

Starting with data at your company, then show this graph to explain the needed steps. Capturing these days is fairly easy. Understanding and reading the insights, that’s a different skill set. Best thing to do? Start small with Google Analytics & CRM for instance and understand the difference between both. GA is session-driven. CRM is user-driven. Don’t mix-up or compare both stats. They’re measured differently.
