Anyone who puts a video on YouTube is now required to indicate when it concerns AI-generated content. Viewers will also see that message.

The policy change is no surprise. At the end of last year, the site announced that it would become mandatory to report this. It wants to provide more transparency, so that viewers realize whether they are looking at real or AI-created images.

There is some nuance: it is explicitly about realistic-looking images that can be confused for real images. For example, a fragment from Star Wars with special effects is not included.

Examples that are included are, for example, an existing building that appears to be on fire with the help of AI, or a landscape that has been adapted. Images with the face or voice of a real person recreated by AI should also be labeled, just like realistic scenes of fictional environments. Google mentions here, among other things, ‘a tornado that moves towards a real city’

Uploaders will see the option in the coming weeks where they can designate AI content when uploading.
