– The importance of having clear policies and procedures in place when using AI, especially for sensitive information

– The legal landscape around AI and content creation is still evolving, with many open questions and subjective determinations

“We need to make sure that if that output is something that we want to have exclusive rights to, and protected under intellectual property laws, then we want to make sure that we have sufficient human creativity applied to that work that it would be eligible.” – Erin Austin, 22:51 (The AI-Powered Thought Leader)

“The more accurate, the more data I can feed in, the better the output. So, for example, I’ve created custom GPTs, where I’ve uploaded several of my books, and all of my blog posts. So what I was able to do was get that to write some content that sounds like me, and has my opinion, which is quite interesting.” – Alastair McDermott, 31:02 (The AI-Powered Thought Leader)
