The latest independent study by the Global Strategy Group shows that just 42% of Americans polled think artists should be compensated when AI uses their work — a shockingly low figure, but one that the Human Artistry Campaign says is supportive.
A new learn The Global Strategy Group (GSG) study shows that just 42 percent of Americans polled think content creators should be compensated for having AI leverage their work. Additionally, just 12 percent of respondents say they would trust companies that rely on AI more than those that rely on humans.
While 42 percent seems surprisingly low, it’s a sign of endorsement from the Human Artistry Campaign, a global-supported initiative for responsible and transparent technology that keeps human creativity at the heart of innovation.
“As AI advances rapidly and new tools are introduced to the public with limited testing or verification, we are encouraged that even in the early days of this debate, people are realizing that human creators should be compensated when their irreplaceable expression and performance is copied and used by those platforms,” says a spokesman for the Human Artistry Campaign coalition.
“Human art will always be crucial in shaping culture and depicting our history. We applaud GSG’s insightful research as an important contribution to this fast-paced debate and are proud to stand as a united creative community that supports responsible and legitimate collaboration and innovation.”
The Human Artistry Campaign debuted at SXSW 2023 to encourage open dialogue and leadership from the united creative community in the AI debate. The growing coalition is built on upholding seven core principles to keep human creativity at the heart of technological innovation.
GSG research shows that Americans seem divided on whether advances in AI will have an overall positive or negative impact on society. Respondents seemed more conflicted on this issue than on whether artists should be compensated for using AI in their work – 28 percent believe advances in AI will have a negative impact.
In comparison, 24 percent believe it will have an overall positive impact. Likewise, 25 percent believe it will have both positive and negative effects, while 23 percent are undecided.
