SEATTLE, WA - In the busy world of advertising, it's clear that generative AI (GenAI) has a lot of potential. Even though it's growing in popularity, hurdles persist in its widespread adoption. Andrew Richardson, VP of Analytics & Measurement at New Engen, shared insights with eMarketer alongside other industry leaders, shedding light on the implications and potential of GenAI in advertising.

Here's a concise breakdown of the latest insights and trends shaping the intersection of GenAI and advertising:

Key Stat: The number of marketers worldwide using GenAI for data analysis (39%) is more than twice the number using it for image generation (16%), per Mediaocean.
