Kickstarter Mandates AI Transparency: Projects Required to Disclose AI Utilization
Kickstarter, the popular crowdfunding platform, is taking a proactive step towards ensuring transparency and accountability in projects that utilize artificial intelligence (AI). The company has announced that starting from August 29th, it will require all creators to disclose if and how they are using AI in their projects. This new policy is aimed at ensuring that human creative input remains central to projects and that proper credit is given to any artists whose work is referenced.
Susannah Page-Katz, Kickstarter’s director of trust and safety, emphasized the importance of transparency and specificity in disclosing the use of AI. By providing clear information about the role of AI in their projects, creators can build trust among backers and set their projects up for success. This move comes as AI continues to play an increasingly prominent role in various fields and raises concerns about its ethical and creative implications.
