2020, we had Covid, which was basically just a new cold virus, and only a threat to those in poor health, like any respiratory infection. It was new, so spread quick and easy. It had already entered the world population, before an alert, so containment was never possible. The other guidelines were mostly nonsense, or hygiene/sanitation practices, people already, or should have been doing anyway. The hype, the hysteria, the control, virtue signaling...


AI presents political peril for 2024 with threat to mislead voters: 'We're not prepared for this'
Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) — Computer engineers and tech-inclined political scientists have warned for years that cheap, powerful artificial intelligence tools would soon allow anyone to create fake images, video and audio that was realistic enough to fool voters and perhaps sway an election.

The synthetic images that emerged were often crude, unconvincing and costly to produce, especially when other kinds of misinformation were so inexpensive and easy to spread on social media. The threat posed by AI and so-called deepfakes always seemed a year or two away.

No more.

Sophisticated generative AI tools can now create cloned human voices and hyper-realistic images, videos and audio in seconds, at minimal cost. When strapped to powerful social media algorithms, this fake and digitally created content can spread far and fast and target highly specific audiences, potentially taking campaign dirty tricks to a new low.

The implications for the 2024 campaigns and elections are as large as they are troubling: Generative AI can not only rapidly produce targeted campaign emails, texts or videos, it also could be used to mislead voters, impersonate candidates and undermine elections on a scale and at a speed not yet seen.

"We're not prepared for this," warned A.J. Nash, vice president of intelligence at the cybersecurity firm ZeroFox. "To me, the big leap forward is the audio and video capabilities that have emerged. When you can do that on a large scale, and distribute it on social platforms, well, it's going to have a major impact."

AI experts can quickly rattle off a number of alarming scenarios in which generative AI is used to create synthetic media for the purposes of confusing voters, slandering a candidate or even inciting violence.

Here are a few: Automated robocall messages, in a candidate's voice, instructing voters to cast ballots on the wrong date; audio recordings of a candidate supposedly confessing to a crime or expressing racist views; video footage showing someone giving a speech or interview they never gave. Fake images designed to look like local news reports, falsely claiming a candidate dropped out of the race.

Didn't even quote half the story, it was long, mostly just more, similar fear-mongering. Most people don't understand the technology, so will accept whatever the 'experts', the media drums up to quote. Pay for an opinion, you'll get the opinion you paid for...

We've had the tools to edit photos and videos for decades. Even the 'free' tools work pretty good, and decent broadcast quality can be produced. Photo-shopping is old news. AI might make it quicker/easier, not necessarily any better. Still the work of a human mind, to create the idea. TikTok has video filters. I don't do Tiktok, but a lady I work with, shares videos almost every break. Lot of funny stuff. Not sure if the filters are AI. Some are kind of obvious, some pretty subtle. Maybe why Biden was talking banning TikTok...

Biden, the gaff-master, doesn't produces 'material', every time he steps in front of a camera. Going AI wouldn't be needed. I've suspected that many of Biden's video, specially during 2020, was AI enhanced. He was a mess campaigning, pre-covid, just a state away from dropping out. Covid hits, basement-dwelling became popular, and so did Biden. his competition drops out kind of quick,even when doing well in the Primaries.

Sure, there will be some AI generated ads, probably a lot. Mostly to generate controversy, and steer attention away from other uses. Mail-in ballots will still be a major factor as well. Those covid-era changes are there permanently. Basically, you no longer need a reason, to not get off your lazy ass and vote in person. I think a lot of people will get ballots in the mail, who don't usually vote, or even knew they registered/requested a ballot. They'll also receive helpful literature in the mail, from the democrat party, showing them how a 'good' democrat votes. Just copy the marked 'example ballot', and send it in. The literature will imply that they might get into legal trouble, if they don't mark the ballot, and return it. Registration can be done online, and updated anytime. AI can be used to find and exploit a lot of deadbeat voters.
