How Will AI Affect the 2024 Election?
The explosive rise of artificial intelligence during the past two years coincides with widespread concerns about the security of American democracy. 2024 will bring the first presidential election of the generative AI era. Americans have many questions: will AI help quell the fears of another hotly debated election outcome, or will it fuel the fire? As generative AI produces output that is increasingly difficult to distinguish from human-created content, how will voters separate fact from misinformation?
The Brennan Center for Justice and Georgetown University’s Center for Security and Emerging Technologies have convened experts to examine critical questions about AI. They will explore how it might impact high-stakes areas like election security, voter suppression, election administration, and political advertising and fundraising.
A panel ready to break down these complex topics. The conversation will address near-term risks of AI that could become critical in the 2024 election cycle and explore what steps the government, the private sector, and nonprofits should take to minimize the possible dangers while harnessing the benefits of these new and powerful tools.
