Can AI Make Mail Better?
Everyone is still learning about what artificial intelligence can do and how to use this technology. How can mailers put AI to use to help meet business needs? How can organizations that produce the mail take advantage of AI to help their customers gain greater benefits (and mail more often)? Can print/mail service providers use AI to develop new business?
