AI could pose a threat to democracy in the US election campaign

Artificial intelligence is likely to play an important role in the upcoming US presidential election campaign. The American computer expert Jennifer Golbeck, who examined the elections four years ago, warns of the effects of the new technology.

The US presidential election is the first in which artificial intelligence (AI) is readily available to everyone. What do you expect?
It’s going to be absolutely wild. It’s a huge problem, a nightmare. Generative AI, i.e. artificial intelligence that writes texts, creates images or films, has only been available to everyone for about a year. Nobody currently knows how to deal with it. Here in the USA there are no rules, no laws, nothing. But the people who want to use them for misinformation and propaganda clearly understand how to use them.
