Key stat: 61% of US paid search marketers think future chat-based search advertising will be very or extremely effective, according to NP Digital.

Disney’s future is built on AI: The company has a task force looking for ways to implement the tech across its vast entertainment empire.

The initial wave of excitement over generative AI is fading, leaving many retailers asking, “Now what?” Some might want to look toward Shopify, which is incorporating generative AI capabilities across its platform to help sellers build and scale their businesses more quickly. Or maybe take a cue from eBay, which is using the tech to make more accurate and helpful product recommendations. Meanwhile, Etsy is working to democratize access to machine learning models to help speed up deployment across its organization.

Since Google debuted its Search Generative Experience AI-based interface in beta three months ago, it’s made a lot of updates to alleviate early concerns from testers. But according to search expert Lily Ray, Google still has some work to do to fix issues with its new AI-driven experience. Meanwhile, Microsoft—which is still a very distant rival—continues to innovate on Bing Chat, which Ray called “the best AI product that’s out there right now.”

What’s driving bank switching: A survey found that dissatisfaction with digital experiences and being treated like a number, not a person, is the surest way to send customers to a competitor. And those chatbots aren’t helping.

On today's episode, we discuss how a new era of social media is rising, whether folks want to pay for things with their hand, when the best time to email your co-worker is, how Walmart+ is getting on, what AI in the home might look like, the most popular cars in the US, and more.

Generative AI hype has faded, but adoption is still increasing, uses are advancing, and it’s influencing marketers’ workflows and consumers’ behaviors. Here are five charts breaking down the current state of generative AI.

Meta's strong earnings boost stock by 6%, owing to efficient cost-cutting measures, rebounding online ads, increased Reels engagement, and successful AI integrations.

Generative AI was the shiny new thing this year (despite having been around for quite a while). Curious consumers wrote poems with ChatGPT, created masterpieces with Midjourney, and browsed Google’s and Microsoft’s AI-chatbot search functionalities. As the hype clears, which generative AI applications will be most relevant for business? And how can marketers put those applications to use?

The launch of ChatGPT kick-started the use of genAI. The number of ChatGPT and genAI users will increase at a healthy clip over the next two years, but at a decreasing rate of growth. Even so, by 2025, over three-quarters (75.2%) of genAI users will use ChatGPT, and more than a third (34.0%) of the US population will use genAI.

Here are four ways to use generative AI holistically in daily workflows.

On today's episode, we discuss a milestone for digital video, why TV lovers still love their TVs, and the relationship between digital audio and social networking. "In Other News," we talk about how many US shoppers use their phones to pay for things at the register and how many generative AI users there are in the US.
