Our AI Policy, written by Humans

At GDC Marketing & Ideation, we use AI to assist in some content development. To ensure transparency, accountability, quality and privacy, we adhere to internal AI usage standards. These standards help us safeguard against biases, maintain data security, and uphold our commitment to ethical marketing practices. One of these standards is that AI should be used to assist in content creation, not fully automate it. We ensure every piece of content we develop is shaped and reviewed by people who have an understanding of our audience and AI’s limitations.
