How AI could manipulate votes, threaten democracy in upcoming election
Briefly

Concerns are growing about the potential manipulation of the upcoming U.S. elections through the use of artificial intelligence (AI). Generative AI, which can generate photos and written information based on models and user prompts, is a particularly worrisome technology. It can be misused to suppress eligible voters, spread incorrect information, and amplify divisive issues. Additionally, tech and AI companies are failing to invest in election integrity initiatives, which exacerbates the risks associated with AI in elections.
While AI has been utilized in a multitude of ways in society, there are growing concerns about the use of generative AI during this election season, which may manipulate voters and undermine the elections.
AI can potentially undermine election integrity through its ability to generate and spread misinformation. It can be used to exclude eligible voters or spread false information that can sway voters against certain candidates. The lack of human oversight and accountability in AI-generated information poses a significant risk. Moreover, tech and AI companies have not prioritized investment in election integrity initiatives, leaving the door open for potential exploitation.
Tech companies aren't investing in election integrity initiatives. AI companies don't have the connections and funding to manage any risks involved with how their tools get utilized for elections. This means that there is less and less human oversight on what AI generates as well as how the AI-generated information gets used.
