The technologies help the marketers better understand the customers and enables them to target them better and customize the marketing actions and messages. Learning about the impact of AI on marketing is very important in terms of understanding the current technological developments and thinking about their capabilities.

This paper provides a research agenda to the current application of artificial intelligence in marketing practices, future trends and their influence on the future of marketing practices. The paper includes a broad literature review over the topic of artificial intelligence and identifies that future research should be done in the areas of master algorithms, real- life customer interaction, independent machines and strong beyond human artificial intelligence as well as the potential ethical problems that come along.
