Safeguard Your Brand in the Era of AI-Powered Misinformation
11:10 -11:25 AM CEST

One of the most critical media quality challenges facing advertisers today is the rampant spread of misinformation, especially as AI-powered deepfakes target a global election year, with voters in 60 countries heading to the polls. While misinformation in media is nothing new, Gen-AI and user-generated content has taken it to a whole new level, endangering brands’ ability to effectively reach consumers across social media and the open web. Join Lisa Utzschneider, CEO of IAS on how best to navigate the rise of misinformation, protect your brand, and continue to scale throughout this election season and beyond.

Brand safety and suitability is essential in today’s advertising climate as consumers increasingly hold advertisers’ feet to the fire for ad placements adjacent to inappropriate content. Making matters worse, the result of misplaced ads may lead to lower levels of brand favorability and trust, which in turn can severely hurt a brand’s reputation. Hear from leading media and marketing executives on leveraging AI to ensure brand safety and suitability across CTV, social, the open web, and emerging media.
