Amazon Kindle Issues a Warning About AI Content
Last Update: Sep 8, 2023
A friend recently forwarded me an email about Amazon's new requirements for disclosing the use of AI-generated content. Some content providers use AI secretly across their catalogues. According to Amazon, this is a very unethical practice that risks full Amazon account suspension.
Amazon now requires formal disclosure and classification of all and any AI-generated text, images, or translations. This includes children's books. You must declare the extent of AI use across three categories, ranging from "full AI generated" to "light AI assistance".
You don't have to declare AI Assisted content
Importantly, only AI-generated content requires disclosure, not AI-assisted content. The difference is that generated means letting the AI fully create the work, while assisted entails focused AI help like brainstorming, editing, and refinements, expansions and improvements.
While I steer clear of AI on Amazon, others should be aware of these rules if leveraging this technology. Full transparency remains critical, both ethically and to avoid account jeopardy. I hope this heads up helps content creators use AI judiciously and align with Amazon's disclosure requirements.
For me it is about time there has been a plethora of travel books and guides recently that have obviously been written by people who know nothing about the place they are visiting. AI generated content is out of date or just plain wrong.
