The next American president may be chosen by China or Russia
With the rise of this new technology, the ability to sway an election has moved away from the people and into the hands of countries like China and Russia. These countries can use ChatGPT3, a powerful tool for artificial intelligence, to make millions of
In 2018, a big data scandal called the Cambridge Analytica scandal came to light. It was done by the British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica, which obtained personal information about millions of Facebook users without their knowledge or permission. Then, the data may have been used to target voters with personalized online ads to try to change the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The scandal has caused people all over the world to talk about data privacy, the use of technology in elections, and the morality of targeted advertising.
People think the Trump campaign ran more than 50,000 targeted ads per day during the 2016 election. These ads were used to reach specific groups of voters and send them messages meant for them. People have said that Cambridge Analytica made and shared these ad assets, but the company has denied these claims. On the other hand, using targeted advertising in the 2016 election was new and had a big impact on who won. In the end, it was found that Russia spread fake news through social media to help Donald Trump win the election. People are worried that this means foreign powers were able to affect the election in ways that weren't possible before social media and the Internet.
Trump’s digital campaign director, Brad Parscale, said in an interview how many ads they had launched daily in the 2016 election campaign:
“We were making hundreds of thousands of them (ads on Facebook) programmatically. … (On an) average day (we would make) 50,000 to 60,000 ads, changing language, words, colors, changing things because certain people like a green button better than a blue button, some people like the word ‘donate’ over ‘contribute.’”
The research published in The Guardian says that more than 218,000 ads were made for the 2020 presidential election. Here are some stats and sample ads from the campaign.
Now we are in a new era of artificial intelligence. The ChatGPT3 algorithm created a huge impact on social media, and millions of people started to use this technology in one week. This technology can create ads, blog posts, and fake news in less than a minute, and it just needs hours to amplify the amount of content generated to a hundred thousand. With this technology, every company, every candidate, and every foreign country can make millions of pieces of content that can be used to influence the next election.
With the rise of this new technology, the ability to sway an election has moved away from the people and into the hands of countries like China and Russia. These countries can use ChatGPT3, a powerful tool for artificial intelligence, to make millions of pieces of content that can be used to trick voters and change the outcome of an election. This means that the next president of the United States might not be chosen by the people who live there but by a foreign power that can change the election results with its high-tech tools.
This could have a huge impact on American democracy, as the country's citizens would no longer have control over who is chosen to lead them. It is important to take steps to make sure that foreign powers can't use AI and other technologies to change the results of the next election. Is it possible? Unfortunately, not.
On the other hand, America is capable of influencing any election anywhere in the world. Dictators can control the decisions of their own people if they have access to the technology and money needed to make content. Deep-fake technology will be the next threat.
While I see a lot of promise in AI tools, I think it's important to weigh the potential downsides. While it's exciting to see AI making strides in the world, it's important to keep an eye on the risks it poses and work to ensure the fairness of elections.
