A Friendly Reminder: A.I. Work Isn’t Yours

The New York Times: “Many organizations are grappling with how to manage A.I. in the workplace. The next time someone turns in work generated by A.I. without an appropriate acknowledgment, simply tell them that moving forward, they need to identify all A.I.-generated work. But it’s also important to take a more expansive approach instead of trying to address the issue on a case-by-case basis. Collaborate with relevant stakeholders to develop A.I. guidelines that reflect the realities of the work your organization does. When is it appropriate for employees to use A.I.? How should they acknowledge and cite A.I.-generated work? When is using the technology not appropriate? What are the consequences for employees who do not follow these guidelines? How are you going to train staff to use A.I.? How are you going to train managers to identify work that is generated by it? These are the early days of the mass adoption of A.I. It is an imperfect tool, however exciting its potential may be. We need to think carefully about the ethics of using A.I. and remember that artificial intelligence is not human. It lacks a moral code. It lacks judgment. There are limits to what it knows and what it can do.”
