Civitai Joins Thorn and All Tech Is Human to Enact Strong Child Safety Commitments for Generative AI

BOISE, Idaho--()--Civitai, alongside industry leaders such as Amazon, Anthropic, Google, Meta, Metaphysic, Microsoft, Mistral AI, OpenAI, and Stability AI, has committed to implementing robust child safety measures in the development, deployment, and maintenance of generative AI technologies. This initiative, led by Thorn, a nonprofit dedicated to defending children from sexual abuse, and All Tech Is Human, an organization dedicated to collectively tackling tech and society's complex problems, aims to mitigate the risks generative AI poses to children.

By adopting comprehensive Safety by Design principles, Civitai and its peers are setting new standards for the ethical development of AI, ensuring that child safety is prioritized at every stage. As part of the working group, Civitai has also agreed to release progress updates every three months.

This commitment marks a significant step forward in preventing the misuse of AI technologies to create or spread child sexual abuse material (AIG-CSAM) and other forms of sexual harm against children.

“Civitai is aligned with Thorn, All Tech Is Human, and the broader tech industry,” said Justin Maier, Founder and CEO of Civitai. “This pledge underscores our unwavering commitment to fostering responsible AI development. In our pursuit of harnessing AI's potential, we recognize the imperative of safeguarding children and upholding ethical standards. We are steadfast in integrating the Safety by Design principles, ensuring that our AI technologies are not only innovative but safe for our users.”

This collective action underscores the tech industry's approach to child safety, demonstrating a shared commitment to ethical innovation and the well-being of the most vulnerable members of society.

Thorn has published the principles at Additionally, select participating companies joined Thorn and ATIH to publish a comprehensive paper, "Safety by Design for Generative AI: Preventing Child Sexual Abuse," that features these principles and additional mitigations, detailing actionable strategies that AI developers, providers, data hosting platforms, social platforms, and search engines may take to implement these principles, making it more challenging for bad actors to exploit generative AI technologies for harmful purposes.
