Today the Associated Press (AP) has a disturbing story about the danger artificial intelligence (AI) poses for our next national election. Concerned voters need to read it and be aware of what could be coming.
No, correct that. Be aware of what is coming, of what has already come. Deep fake photos of candidates or the president doing things they didn’t actually do, saying things they didn’t actually say. Political ads with deep fake images of events that didn’t happen. Use your imagination. Because it’s a cinch others will. And to your detriment.
The next election could be awash in AI-generated images, voices, claims, accusations, events, and news. The potential is certainly there. And you know it will be exploited.
The AP story is titled “AI presents political peril for 2024 with threat to mislead voters.” You owe it to yourself to read it.
Forewarned is forearmed.
