Are your contracts AI ready? 5 things you should know

Are your contracts AI ready? 5 things you should know 1

Are you ready for AI in your business?

Artificial intelligence (AI) based software and chatbots are increasingly popular in the business world. After all what’s not to like? Why not pay a small fee for software to generate everything you want from words, to images, to answering customer queries, analysing your data and more?

Here at KoffeeKlatch we are all in favour of anything that makes you or your business more efficient and reduces your costs, but there is a dark side to AI and a few problem areas that you and your contracts need to take care of.

Not all AIs are created equal

AI is a broad concept and quite a technical one for those of us who are not in the programming world. But there are a number of issues you need to be aware of:

Data leaking: Some AI programmes are nothing more than data harvesters designed to suck data from your business (not just the data you upload!) and share it with the people who wrote that programme and whoever they choose to share it with after that.

Data theft: There are reputable AI programmes that are transparent and clear about what happens to what you put into the programme – but sometimes similar sounding names are using that base to put their own programme on top. Be very careful you know exactly who you are dealing with.

Reliability: AIs work on something called machine learning. Some crawl the internet looking for content to use (or sometimes use turns into plagiarism). There is no filter or actual intelligence there. They tend to look at what is most popular or most often repeated. But what is often repeated is not necessarily true and this can cause untrue content and comments to be presented to you by AIs. This is often called ‘hallucination’.

Copyright: You may not have copyright in what is created (outputs). This depends in great part on the terms and conditions of the programme. Many assign you a right to use provided you credit the AI as the content creator. Others assign a right to non commercial use only. That is absolutely useless if you are creating on behalf of a client and also charging them for the ultimate result. And it is even more of a problem if your associate does this and you don’t even know.

Personal data: The data inputted may travel all over the world, which can cause problems if that is personal data!

Your contracts and processes need to be AI ready now

With more mainstream programmes providing AI assisted elements every day, you need to get your contracts and systems in line for the AI world – even if you have no intention of using it right now.

If you are creating content for your clients, or accessing personal or confidential data that they have collected you need to be able to work securely and appropriately.

KoffeeKlatch Virtual Assistant contracts are AI ready

We don’t mean you should run our contracts through an AI editor – that would be a breach of our contract with you! But we have updated the contracts you issue to clients (terms) and the contracts for your team (hiring) to give you:

Transparency make sure your associates and team don’t put the wrong data into the wrong programme

Clarity be clear with clients what type of rights you are offering them when creating content

Privacy be clear about which programmes can be used by whom and what can go into them

If you are a KoffeeKlatch customer within your support period these got dropped into your documents in the Zone – you don’t need to repurchase.
