Creative works shape our identity, values, and worldview. 

And there are fundamental elements of our culture that are uniquely human. Only humans are capable of communicating the endless intricacies, nuances, and complications of the human condition through art - whether it be music, performance, writing, or any other form of creativity.

 

Developments in artificial intelligence are exciting and could advance the world farther than we ever thought possible. But AI can never replace human expression and artistry. 

As new technologies emerge and enter such central aspects of our existence, it must be done responsibly and with respect for the irreplaceable artists, performers, and creatives who have shaped our history and will chart the next chapters of human experience.

 

These principles outline how we can responsibly use artificial intelligence  – to support human creativity and accomplishment with respect to the inimitable value of human artistry and expression.

Core Principles

for Artificial

Intelligence Applications 

in support of human creativity & accomplishment

1. Technology has long empowered human expression, and AI will be no different

2. Human created works will continue to play an essential role in our lives

3. Use of copyrighted works, and the use of voices and likenesses of professional performers, requires authorization and
free-market licensing from all rightsholders

4. Governments should not create new copyright or other IP exemptions that allow AI developers to exploit creators without permission or compensation

5. Copyright should only protect the unique value of human intellectual creativity  

6. Trustworthiness and transparency are essential to the success of AI and protection of creators  

7. Creators' interests must be represented in policymaking
