Before we dive into the roundup, here’s a quick look at some recent research on marketers’ use of AI:

More than half (51.3%) of global marketing leaders say cost is a significant barrier when adopting AI, according to a new study by Algomarketing, a workforce solutions and marketing operations consultancy.

Also, 77.5% said that they have had to delay the implementation of AI and automation due to concerns about bias and fairness. Almost half (44.4%) said they have issues finding people who have the skills in marketing and AI to undertake projects. Only 23.2% of the world’s biggest companies have adequate internal resources to take advantage of new technologies, with over half (52%) opting for a blended skills approach to AI implementation using in-house staff alongside external suppliers.

U.S.-based marketers are less likely to adopt AI than those in other regions. Only 26.7% of U.S.-based, and 14% of Singapore-based marketers, said they have been using AI tools in the last three years. This compares to 54.5% of those based in Australia and 45.3% in the U.K.

The study surveyed over 300 global marketing leaders working in firms with 10,000+ staff about the current use of AI and automation in their marketing operations.
