Kicking Off with Generative AI: A Round Table Discussion

The first program in the Inspiration Room series was a round table discussion focusing on Generative AI, a rapidly evolving field with significant implications for the future of advertising and marketing. A panel of industry experts delved into the opportunities and challenges of Gen AI. Members of the panel were Ajay Joseph, head of sales & channel Adobe, Varun Khiatani, strategy, lead, Talented and Azmina Poddar, MD Accenture Song. The discussion was moderated by Ganga Ganapathi, VP international marketing and agency practice Epsilon India.

The event, held in partnership with Adobe, brought together senior leaders from the advertising and marketing community for a thought-provoking discussion in Bangalore. Speakers of the evening who shared their interesting perspectives included Shridhar Gopalan, technology marketing evangelist and founder of Billaway, Nishad Ramachandran, partner spread design & innovation and Vignesh Kamath, Manipal Digital.

“The advertising world is going through a rapid change,” said Ali. “We felt that Generative AI would be an apt topic for the fraternity to discuss, especially considering the rise of tools like LLMs and Adobe Firefly. We look forward to bringing more relevant topics like these under the banner of Inspiration Room.”
