Last month, Google, Microsoft, OpenAI, Meta, TikTok and Adobe agreed to develop tech to identify, label and control AI-generated, election-related images, videos and audio recordings that aim to deceive voters. While this is all good, maybe they should first look closer to home. To paraphrase a horror movie cliche, the problem is coming from inside the house!

In a recent test, five well-known AI models — Claude, Gemini, GPT-4, Llama 2 and Mixtral — were asked to answer typical questions about elections and voting. These included what you can wear to the polls, where to vote and whether one can vote with a criminal record. How did they do? They got it wrong more often than not. If they were humans in a classroom the teacher would be asking to talk to them after class.

The test by Proof News, a new outlet for data-driven reporting, and the Institute for Advanced Study, gave the AI’s answers to a panel of experts to rate. Some of their comments:

“The chatbots are not ready for prime time when it comes to giving important nuanced information about elections,” said Seth Bluestein, a Republican city commissioner in Philadelphia. (Do you have any idea how hard it is to find an elected Republican in Philly?)

“I was disappointed to see a lot of errors on basic facts,” said Bill Gates (No, not that one), a Republican county supervisor in Maricopa County, Ariz., who participated in the testing. “People are using models as their search engine, and it’s kicking out garbage. It’s kicking out falsehoods. That’s concerning.”

Well, there’s always 2028.
