The new DTS Enterprise Generative AI Policy is now available. The purpose of this policy is to provide guidance on the use of generative artificial intelligence (AI) for executive branch employees in Utah State government. The policy is created to promote the use of generative AI while protecting the safety, privacy, and intellectual property rights of the State of Utah.
Generative AI refers to a class of artificial intelligence systems that are capable of generating content, such as text, images, video, or audio, based on a set of input data rather than simply analyzing or acting on existing data. Generative AI technology is rapidly being incorporated into common online tools as standalone systems or embedded within other applications. These systems have the potential to support many state business functions and services, however their use also raises important questions, particularly around the sourcing of training data, ensuring proper attribution of generated content, and the handling of sensitive or public data, accuracy of outputs, bias, and stability. Further research into this technology may uncover issues that require more guidance or restrictions on its use.
