Description & Show Notes

In which we discuss three further areas where artificial intelligence begins to touch on democracy: equality, elections, and the systemic competition between democracy and autocracy.

In this episode, we focus on three further contact areas between AI and democracy at different analytical levels:

At the group level, AI impacts equality of rights among different groups of people in society.

At the institutional level, AI impacts the perception of elections as a fair and open mechanism for channeling and managing political conflict.

At the systems level, AI impacts competition between democratic and autocratic systems of government.
