Many elections, AI’s dark dimension


The rapid advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI) models has sparked discussions about its potential impact on human progress, especially with the looming possibility of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) that could mimic human capabilities.

AI and Electoral Landscape:

  • Consideration: The upcoming general elections in India, along with those scheduled in numerous other countries, highlight the need to consider the influence of AI on electoral dynamics.
  • Opportunities and challenges: Technological advancements in AI, particularly Generative AI, present both opportunities and challenges in the electoral process, raising concerns about its potential impact.
  • Tackling AI 'Determinism': The proliferation of AI technologies facilitates the spread of disinformation and misinformation (hyper-realistic Deep Fakes), posing a significant challenge in electoral contexts.

India's Handling of AI:

  • Dual challenge: As a digitally advanced nation, India faces the dual challenge of harnessing the benefits of AI while remaining vigilant against its potential disruptions.
  • Preventive measures: While awareness of AI's disruptive nature is essential, democracies need to implement measures to prevent AI-driven tactics from distorting electoral processes and influencing voter behavior.
  • Responsible behaviour: India's expertise in digital technologies positions it uniquely to navigate the complexities of AI, but policymakers must tread carefully to ensure AI's responsible and beneficial integration into society.
