A Customer Centric Approach to AI
As a trusted partner to individuals and businesses of all sizes, Adobe develops and deploys AI capabilities with a customer-centric approach, guided by its AI Ethics principles to ensure content and data transparency. Adobe designed Firefly’s generative AI output to be safe for commercial use. Firefly for Enterprise offers businesses the opportunity to obtain an intellectual property (IP) indemnification for content generated by most Firefly-powered workflows.
By default, Firefly includes Content Credentials on every asset created using Firefly to indicate that generative AI was used, bringing more trust and transparency to digital content. Content Credentials are verifiable details that serve as a digital “nutrition label.” They can show information including an asset’s name, creation date, tools used for creation and any edits made. Powered by free, open-source technology from the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI), this data remains associated with content wherever it is used, published or stored, enabling proper attribution and helping consumers make informed decisions about digital content.
