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;
- the impact on writing and creativity,
- 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.
