AI was always poised to disrupt business as we know it. But thanks to huge advancements in the past year, that reality seems closer than ever in advertising.

From ChatGPT to Midjourney, AI is proving it can handle creative as well as computational tasks — and that has huge implications for the ad industry. Join us at our next virtual event, where we will delve into the impact of AI on advertising and prepare you for the challenges and opportunities of a more automated future.

Session 1: AI and creativity: The risks and rewards
