IZEA Uses AI to Automate Influencer Screening

Influencer marketing platform IZEA announced it is now using artificial intelligence to vet members of its influencer network. Aligning nicely with the current mood, it positions this as helping to ensure brand safety by protecting marketers from associating with undesirable partners. But it also casually mentions the new system has replaced many of the human workers who previously did the vetting. That’s probably the bigger news.
