Generative AI is the next step in the decade we’ve put into developing Adobe Sensei. As we harness its power across our cloud technologies, we’re more committed than ever to thoughtful, responsible development.
Taking an ethical approach to artificial intelligence.
“AI is transforming the way we create, work, and communicate. By taking a thoughtful and comprehensive approach to AI ethics, Adobe is committed to ensuring this technology is developed responsibly and respects our customers and our communities.”
— Dana Rao, Executive Vice President, General Counsel, and Chief Trust Officer
AI ethics in action.
Guided by our AI Ethics principles of accountability, responsibility, and transparency, we’ve created standardized processes from design to development to deployment, including training, testing, and a review process overseen by a diverse AI Ethics Review Board.
AI is only as good as the data on which it’s trained, and what results are considered appropriate depends on each use case. That’s why we build datasets specifically to meet the needs of each of our businesses, to ensure we have diverse and ethical results that are appropriate for the way in which the AI will be used.
We conduct rigorous and continuous testing of AI-powered features and products to mitigate against harmful biases and stereotypes. This includes automated testing and human evaluation.
Engineers developing any AI-powered features submit an AI Ethics Impact Assessment. This is a multi-part impact assessment designed to identify features and products that can perpetuate harmful biases and stereotypes. This allows our AI Ethics team to focus their efforts on features and products with the highest potential ethical impact, without slowing down the pace of innovation.
Diverse human oversight
AI-powered features with the highest potential ethical impact are reviewed by a diverse cross-functional AI Ethics Review Board. Diversity of personal and professional backgrounds and experiences is critical to identifying potential issues from a variety of different perspectives that a less diverse team might not see. Hear from members of our board. Watch the video.
We provide feedback mechanisms so users can report potentially biased outputs and we can remediate any concerns. AI is an ongoing journey, and we want to work together with our community to continue to make our tools and products better for everyone. If you have a question about AI ethics or want to report a possible AI ethics issue, please contact us.
How we’re using AI today.
Adobe Creative Cloud
AI unleashes our customers’ creativity in new ways, removes tedious and time-consuming tasks from their daily work, and makes it easier for them to tell their stories while spending more time on inspiration and design.
Adobe Document Cloud
Our AI-enabled features help streamline form-based processes — from how digital documents are consumed to how organizations extract document intelligence to gain a competitive advantage — resulting in a smoother, more enjoyable PDF experiences.
Adobe Experience Cloud
Enterprises use our AI to analyze customer journey data that informs decisions, deliver personalized experiences at scale to key audiences, manage data-driven marketing content, and more.
Firefly is the new family of creative generative AI models coming to Adobe products, focusing initially on image and text effect generation. Firefly will offer new ways to ideate, create, and communicate while significantly improving creative workflows.
