+ ABOUT VerifiedHuman™
When we embrace the benefits of AI in our lives and are transparent about how we create, everyone wins.
VerifiedHuman™ doesn't claim all the answers, but we think we're shining a light on a vast (and surprisingly absent) part of the answer.
A BIG PART OF THE SOLUTION.
What can we do?
We do as humans have always done.
Figure it out. Assemble and use better tools. Make things that matter. Trust in the greater good.
+ VerifiedHuman™ begins as a think tank led by Micah Voraritskul to address the apparent gaps in legislative and technological remedies to the current global AI concerns.
+ We seek to answer a fundamental question: To address the problem of AI-HUMAN differentiation of created content, is there a solution that transcends laws, copyrights, NFTs, digital watermarking, etc., takes into account understood human behavior, and leverages the values of trust, confidence, accountability, and equity?
+ In concert with third-party auditing service providers, VerifiedHuman™ is developing comprehensive models for ongoing verification of written work for schools and organizations.
+ VerifiedHuman™ adds a new standard category for Voice Actors.
+ VerifiedHuman™ is partnering with public and private schools in China, the Philippines, EAU, and the US to pilot a program to verify student writing and develop recommendations for instruction, including the responsible use of AI in the teaching/learning process.
+ VerifiedHuman™ announces the release of the Standard for Organizations.
+ We also plan to launch the VerifiedHuman™ Gold Standard Label, which will include active, ongoing verification of content creation for commercial writers, artists, musicians, publishers, studios, distributors, and other organizations seeking the highest level of authentication of human-created content.
+ We plan to pilot and release a more comprehensive standards-based model for educational institutions (to be implemented for the school year 2024-2025) and more specified verification options. for organizations such as traditional businesses, non-profits, governmental entities, and media distributors of music, art, and publications.
We are a collective of creatives, thinkers, educators, translators, engineers, writers, visual artists, musicians, voice actors, craftswomen & men, filmmakers, philosophers, and just about everything in between.
We would love for you to join us.
We are just like you.
People who value authentic human work. People are trying to figure out how AI technology affects how we think, move, and work.
We are optimists and problem-solvers. We don't despair of progress. We embrace it and choose to move with it. For us, AI isn't a problem to mitigate. We see that it can drive society toward equity–to shine a light on individual human contribution in an evolving world.
In this way, "VerifiedHuman™" is not simply a model for human–AI differentiation. Instead, the ideals we share become part of a new global appreciation for the inherent value of every human person.
And we love technology, but machines do not have stories to tell...
But we will not let it pull us under.
Humans are resilient and possess an innate desire to lead fulfilling lives and connect with others. Honesty and the ability to express ourselves while embracing innovation are values most of us hold dearly. Embracing and advocating for these values is precisely what we are doing.
The tide may be pulling us all out.
A powerful tide is pulling society in a troubling direction. Unable to discern between AI and human content, we are heading toward a world in which everyone–by default–will assume whatever they're reading, seeing, and hearing was probably created by AI–unless proven otherwise. This is a massive problem.
