In big election year, AI's architects move against its misuse

·1 min

Artificial intelligence (AI) companies are taking steps to set limits on the use of AI in elections. OpenAI, the maker of ChatGPT, is working to prevent abuse of its tools by forbidding the creation of chatbots that imitate real people or institutions. Google has also limited its AI chatbot, Bard, from responding to certain election-related prompts. Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, has promised to label AI-generated content on its platforms to help voters differentiate between real and fake material. A voluntary pledge was signed by 20 tech companies to prevent deceptive AI content from disrupting voting in 2024. The companies agreed to collaborate on AI detection tools and other actions.
