Generative AI policy

Third Door Media’s generative AI policy

This policy guides Third Door Media’s staff and contributors (contributing writers and speakers) in the use of generative AI. It enables staff and contributors to use AI tools in ways that align with our corporate ethics, values, and applicable laws and regulations. We encourage staff and contributors to use generative AI technologies to make them more efficient and accurate, provided they adhere to the following guidance.

Defining principle: You are responsible

“You are responsible” is the defining principle of our generative AI use policy. Complying with copyright laws, checking facts, eliminating bias, and properly crediting sources are just a few of the responsibilities our writers and contributors own.

In addition, our staff and contributors are responsible for the accuracy, fairness, originality, and quality of articles, presentations and content.

They are also responsible for transparency. Full disclosure is required If a use case should ever arise where generative AI is used without human supervision.

Acceptable/unacceptable uses of AI

Here are just a few generative AI use cases that are acceptable or unacceptable:

  • Do not use generative AI to write articles, computer code, or complete other tasks. Editorial and promotional copy, as well as our codebase, must be written by you while allowing for assistance (idea generation, optimization, grammar, snippets, etc.) from generative AI;
  • When working with proprietary data or assets, always turn on any privacy settings (ChatGPT for example). You are expressly prohibited from using any AI tool that does not offer privacy protection when using proprietary and/or client data sets;
  • When using image generation tools, do not use or publish images with any identifiable intellectual property or copyrighted materials. Examples include using the likeness of a celebrity or other corporate assets. Using logos as part of images is acceptable under certain circumstances (i.e., creating thumbnails or featured images for editorial purposes); and
  • Be mindful when deploying AI hiring tools. You are responsible for overseeing their actions.
