National Council on Election Integrity Calls on Congress to Address Threat of Generative AI and Prioritize Election SecurityIssue One
As concerns grow over the threat that generative artificial intelligence (AI) poses to U.S. national security, Issue One’s bipartisan National Council on Election Integrity released the following statement urging Congress to pass commonsense safeguards to protect our elections and provide adequate funding to the dedicated officials who administer them:
“Generative AI poses a direct threat to U.S. national security that requires a rapid policy response. Generative AI is capable of creating convincing false images, audio, and text on a mass scale. This capability in the wrong hands and without safeguards may be destabilizing to our elections, our economy, and our social fabric as it strikes at the very nature of truth.
