Human creativity in

the age of AI music

Welcome

Welcome to AI:OK, an elegant solution to a complex challenge. We ask you, the stakeholders, the people who work in and love music: What do you care about? And we signal that care.

AI:OK, is a platform to protect and uphold shared values, collaboratively shaping the future of music through consensus and a human-centered vision.

Responsibility

As technology advances we are experiencing an unprecedented rate of change and a threat to the inclusion of humans in creativity.

AI:OK is an industry-driven initiative promoting ethical and sustainable practices in music through promoting a responsible, innovative music ecosystem. The commitment to these principles can then be represented by AI:OK.

The presence of the logo will signal to people that the creation of the music was driven by humans and respects the creators’ commercial and moral rights. The criteria for the use of the logo will be determined by consensus amongst music industry stakeholders including; creators, labels, retailers, music technology companies, etc.

This logo is comparable to Good Housekeeping or Red Tractor.
