Arthur Sadoun takes a break at the VivaTech conference in Paris on the launch day for "Marcel." Jim Edwards Arthur Sadoun is betting the future of Publicis Groupe on an AI platform called "Marcel." The ad agency network desperately needs to change: Its revenues — $11 billion a year — and stock price are in decline, because Google and Facebook are eating its business.

The labs have dogbone-shaped tables so everybody can stand close to each other and to their prototypes (Some of those tables are hooked up to a 24-hour-a-day video conference system to identical tables in other offices.) There’s a room where a hundred speakers have been entombed to play at maximum volume for months on end. But thinking of Sonos as just a transported Silicon Valley company misses the point entirely. It’s something different, … [Read more...] about The Beam is Sonos’ ambitious attempt to win the living room
