Voters Concerned About AI Influence On Elections

 December 26, 2023

American voters are apparently concerned about the type of influence that artificial intelligence is going to have on future elections.

A survey from Morning Consult and Axios recently proved exactly that.

According to the poll, most Americans think that AI-spread misinformation will influence who wins the 2024 presidential election.

"2024 will be an AI election, much the way that 2016 or 2020 was a social media election," said Ethan Bueno de Mesquita, the interim dean at the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy who worked on the poll, said, adding:

We will all be learning as a society about the ways in which this is changing our politics.

"They are a very powerful tool for doing things like making fake videos, fake pictures, et cetera, that look extremely convincing and are extremely difficult to distinguish from reality -- and that is going to be likely to be a tool in political campaigns, and already has been," Bueno de Mesquita added.
