Ad agencies are increasingly investing in technology and analytics to comb through reams of data and serve precise messages to specific groups of consumers.
But mostly that push has been about hitting the right people at the right time, and less about the art of making a great ad.
That may be changing.
AI may be able to make better ads by figuring out what colors and images people like
On Thursday, Omnicom Group, one of the world's biggest ad agency groups, unveiled Omni, a platform that allows for all its agencies globally to access integrations from companies like Neustar, The Trade Desk, Liveramp and Salesforce. The tool also includes tools for planning, buying and tracking media.
In an interview with Business Insider, Omnicom Digital CEO Jonathan Nelson said that he's particularly interested in how creatives will be able to use the tool. Omnicom's roster of creative shops includes BBDO, DDB and TBWA.
Artificial intelligence has been a buzzword in the advertising industry f or a few years but its uses have mostly been limited to media buying with souped-up programmatic algorithms that are able to set pricing and determine the best time to run a campaign.
The creative side of the industry has been notoriously slower to embrace the technology, partly due to fear that AI will replace roles like creative directors that come up with ideas for clients.
In one example, Omni can create "mood boards," said Nelson. A telecom advertiser, for example, will able to zero in on digital audiences of people who show characteristics of wanting to switch to a new service. Omni can also dive into what those people are specifically looking for in a new service—like the cost or features of a telecom package.
From there, artificial intelligence can surface 30 videos that an audience is interested in and pick apart the individual colors, words and images featured in the video. A video with a lot of blue in it can spark a creative agency's idea to create a campaign for the telecom brand, Nelson said.
