Georgia Tech AI Guidelines

Official Guidance on AI Use

Georgia Tech's Office of Information, in partnership with the Office of General Counsel, Institute Communications and Cyber Security, has crafted general guidance around the use of GenAI. While we understand that nuances exist with respect to GenAI use for research and academic discovery, these guidelines outline approved practices for general use of GenAI for work optimization and enhancements. The guidance will be updated regularly as the Institute reviews the rapidly evolving role of AI at Georgia Tech.

Generative AI Guidance for Privacy and Security

This guidance is provided to the Georgia Tech community members about the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), a rapidly evolving technology. The guidance will be updated as the university reviews the role of AI at Georgia Tech and explores formal contracts and agreements with AI vendors.
