AI as a political tool
- AI has already participated in political work in various ways even people recognised or not. Political Campaign AI would be one example for that. AI analyses particular people’s interests and suggest adverts or lots of resources such as articles, photos, videos and etc via social network service like Facebook and Instagram by using existing data base algorithms by itself. For example, on Facebook when we play one video, they automatically provide video lists which are related the video we already chose and place those videos below the video you selected. And, we may check advertisements, photos, videos and live streaming on suggesting page depending on what we pushed ‘like’ option about contents on Instagram. Even, your phone AI can track your photos and locations. Photo AI in your phone is educated to find people accordingly faces and gathering photos by places. It proves your phone has algorithm associated with certain logics. Of course, it only works on your phone and nobody can see your privacy. Accordingly, Whether or not we intend to see those things, AI already has practical implementations in our life and it knows what we are interested in. So, AI could be called the political system. Thus, some people say the AI turned SNS(Social Networking Service) into a weaponised technique for manipulating people’s thoughts by using suggestion. On the one hand, AI now being use to retain individual person’s interests with reflecting the particularity of each human being. On the other hand, this automation have a possibility to influence determining organisations and even people’s own thoughts. It’s not difficult to find the cases which SNS instigate the crowd and they easily follow what they saw and heard from SNS beyond any doubt and they go so far as to distort manipulate the truth. Even though this tendency is not the fault to AI, the crucial thing is AI has been revealed to operate for powerful actual roles in politics.
