Free elections and democracy in Europe and globally can be detrimentally affected by a malicious use of new technologies, in particular artificial intelligence (AI). AI can be used as a tool to produce and spread disinformation or facilitate psychographic micro-targeting of voters in the run-up to elections. At the same time, AI can effectively counter such uses of technology. This article discusses the ways in which freedom of elections and democracy can be impacted through the deployment of AI.
