GumGum, an artificial intelligence company with deep expertise in computer vision, will release this week the full findings of a November 2018 market research survey, undertaken in partnership with Digiday Media, that queried the current state of brand safety in the advertising industry.
The study assessed market sentiment on the question of brand safety and examined what brands, agencies, and publishers are doing to identify and reduce exposure to unsafe content. GumGum’s research, which follows on similar research it conducted in 2017, signals positive trends but also underscores the fact that brand safety remains a work in progress.
“Unsafe brand exposures were a huge pain point last year, but now we’re finally seeing more confidence across the board when it comes to brand safety,” said Phil Schraeder, President and Chief Operating Officer of GumGum. “The problem is that some of the improvement for brands has come at the expense of exposure to viable audiences.
