UK DEPUTY PM LAUNCHES GLOBAL PUSH TO PROTECT ELECTIONS FROM AI MISINFORMATION – US Federal grants have specifically targeted political opponents and Christians

Deputy Prime Minister Oliver Dowden said, that Democratic countries around the world should band together to confront the threat of AI used by malign states to threaten free elections and spread misinformation, 

The UK is leading a government-led agreement to tackle the threat from AI (Artificial Intelligence) from foreign states, this was launched on Monday.

Details of the compact are still being worked out, but Dowden said several countries had signed on, without naming any.

However, in the last couple of years, US Federal grants have been given to Universities and charities through organisations like the National Science Foundation in the United States to develop AI tools to tackle misinformation and disinformation.  

These Federal grants have specifically targeted political opponents, Older Age people, Christians and US Military Personnel.

Senators in the US say this in itself is a contradiction to the First Amendment which guarantees the Freedom of Speech.
