New Digital Age Foresight Focus Report: Sustainability & Brand Safety | Featuring Emma Lacey SVP EMEA

Emma Lacey expanded on the ways the AI might create both new problems and new solutions for brand marketers. She said:

In addition, generative AI has made it possible for anyone to create vast quantities of content at the click of a button. That combination means that assessing the level of brand risk associated with online content in real-time has become more important than ever.
