The acceleration of artificial intelligence may already be disrupting democratic processes like elections

In the case of the US, it was already given it's death blow by the Citizen's United decision allowing corporations to buy politicians and similar political economic manipulations in other G7 nations

I am on the accelerationist side that maybe unrestrained, open source AI can upend the corporatocracy .

democracy?

I wonder how many people out of those speaking there have ever trained a model/evaluated it/wrangled data for training. I bet it’s less than 5%.

when one can’t do anything but wants to ride the wave of success, the best they’re left with is talking. And talking. Without no clear understanding of what they’re talking about though. This is a perfect example of that.

Or the other way around? Like in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yugoslavia?

Don't worry, just pulling the plugs helps here. That deactivates the models completely or resets them to initial values if further use is necessary. Just handle it pragmatically, not with such a fear mongering.

The acceleration of artificial intelligence may already be disrupting democratic processes like elections and could even threaten human existence.........So who are these so-called nameless experts. There has never been a true democratic nation on this planet, we, the surfs, have been ruled over by the 1% rich ever since the cave men........and I bet they had leaders who lived in bigger caves, and had slaves. Regardless of technology and AI nothing will change for us, the money and power will stay with the rich. Human society has been been designed this way.

Yes, Hercolobus, the US is a threat to AI. Better hide your laptops and phones.

there are a lot of elections around the world in 2024, and the chance that none of them will be swung by deep fakes and things like that is almost zero

While AI may be powerful, I have to wonder whether it can beat the fakery of politicians.

Rapid AI proliferation programmed by news corporations is a threat to democracy.

Like a river or the sea or the ocean, it will not take long for it to be clogged with AI generated data. Then it becomes hazardous to use.

You'd think with all the Smart Tech people producing AI Systems that threaten our daily existence, that at least one of them could spare a bit of time to fix the broken Credit Card payment system in Japan...
