In a recent post to the KDP Community Forum, Amazon announced new guidelines for the use of artificial intelligence (AI) on its Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) platform. The most significant change is that Amazon will now require users to disclose whether their book contains AI-generated content. This disclosure is crucial for maintaining transparency with readers and Amazon.
What is AI Generated Content?
AI-generated content is text, images, or translations that are created by an AI-based tool. This can include content that is created from scratch, as well as content that is edited or translated using AI.
What is the Difference Between AI Generated Content and AI Assisted Content?
AI-assisted content is content that is created by a human author, but that uses AI to improve the content in some way. This could include using AI to proofread the content, to find and fix errors, or to improve the overall style or flow of the content.
What are the new AI guidelines for KDP?
Under the new guidelines, users will be required to disclose whether their book contains AI-generated content. This disclosure must be made when the book is first published, and it can be made in the book's description or in the author's notes.
The guidelines also state that users are responsible for verifying that all AI-generated and/or AI-assisted content adheres to all KDP content guidelines. This includes ensuring that the content is not plagiarized, that it does not violate copyright laws, and that it is not otherwise offensive or harmful.
Why did Amazon issue new AI guidelines?
Amazon has issued new AI guidelines in response to concerns about the quality and accuracy of AI-generated content. In recent years, there have been a number of high-profile cases of AI-generated content that has been plagiarized, offensive, or simply nonsensical.
The new guidelines are designed to help ensure that AI-generated content on KDP is of high quality and meets Amazon's standards. By requiring users to disclose AI-generated content and to verify its accuracy, Amazon is hoping to prevent the spread of misleading or harmful content.
What does this mean for authors?
The new AI guidelines will have a significant impact on authors who use AI to create or improve their content. Authors will now need to be more careful about the use of AI, and they will need to make sure that they disclose any AI-generated content in their books.
However, the new guidelines also provide authors with some flexibility. Authors can still use AI to improve their content, as long as they make sure that the content is accurate and meets Amazon's standards.
Overall, the new AI guidelines are a positive step for Amazon and for authors. The guidelines help to ensure that AI-generated content on KDP is of high quality and meets Amazon's standards. This will help to protect readers from misleading or harmful content, and it will also help to ensure that authors are not penalized for using AI to improve their content.
