"2023 will be remembered as a pivotal year for our relationship with technology. AI will continue to amplify and accelerate human innovation in positive ways. Algorithmic art generated via data farming will inevitably serve some, driven by economic efficiency and the market's desire for instant gratification. Wide adoption of the VerifiedHuman™ label defends and advocates for human creativity by weaponizing the uniquely human behavior of trust."

"Global events of the past few years have tested our ability to trace and verify the origins of goods, ads, and news. It is vital that we safeguard our need to trust the source of media and communications. AI can be a powerful tool with amazing benefits, but it can also be grossly misused. Knowing that some will choose the latter, the promise that creators can make by certifying their work with VerifiedHuman™ as fully human-made, constructed using AI, or a hybrid of both will provide truth in sourcing what we see, hear, and read."

“AI will always be lacking in its ability to reproduce the essence of a story behind every human-created piece of art. VerifiedHuman™ preserves the one thing that distinguishes humans from everything else, our ability to create something real and meaningful.”

"Was it really created by a human or just a product of intelligent software? In these days, it is difficult to be assured of the integrity of any created product.  VerifiedHuman™ is an important early entry into this space, helping assure us of human creation and actual protected intellectual property in a world of confusing, programmatic creativity."

Confidence and credibility in creative expresssion...

Quotation Mark

Generative AI represents an inflection point in the history of human development. No longer can we read a story, listen to a song, or enjoy a painting secure in the knowledge that we are enjoying the fruit of human creativity and artistic endeavor. Because of this, it has become necessary to provide a framework for distinguishing between human innovation and the output of pre-trained AI models. Verified Human™ is that framework - a commitment to transparency around the use of AI for content generation and an acknowledgment that it is critical, from a valuation perspective, to differentiate between human output and the output of models.

VerifiedHuman™ is that framework...

VerifiedHuman™ is a huge step in harnessing the power of AI in service to humanity and not the other way around. By knowing what is made by a human and what is made by a machine, we can begin to build checks, balances and fair systems for further accelerating human progress.”

VerifiedHuman™ has launched at just the right time in this rapidly changing world of technology. The unique work of artists, students, and businesses must be supported and protected at all costs. VerifiedHuman™ values the vital role of  technology and innovation, but most importantly, values people.”

"Story makes up the fabric of human existence. Technology and AI will constantly advance and have an important place in our lives, but they lack the authentic, raw, vulnerable stories that make up our uniquely human experiences. Without story, life has no luster, originality, or color. As a musician, I see VerifiedHuman™ helping ensure that my stories and creative work don't get lost and forever disconnected. As an educator, the model allows me and my students right-size technology's role in our lives, gives us an ethical framework to follow, and reminds us of what it means to be truly human. VerifiedHuman™ is the solution I didn't know existed until now."

Now and for future generations...

Quotation Mark

"In a world where human created original art is being replaced by AI spinoffs like cane sugar was replaced by high fructose corn syrup, I say, "No!"  No to copy-cat ripoffs. VerifiedHuman™ is helping us walk the line. Sure, all artists borrow from the art and artistry of  past artists, but AI pays no homage or price. AI art of any sort is simply not authentic."

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.
