AI and free speech, creativity and democracy

Aug 10, 2023

In the hands of bad actors—whether public or private—generative AI tools can supercharge existing threats to free expression.

PEN America’s comprehensive report on generative AI takes a close look at;

  • disinformation and online abuse,
  • the way that AI can be used in election campaigns and
  • the effects on journalism and censorship.

It makes some chilling forecasts for our democracy and is well worth a read.
