A Look at the Political Policies of AI Tools
Platforms’ policies on AI and politics is rapidly changing and will likely continue to do so
Greetings from the train again! This time I’m heading back to DC after a fantastic few days at Yale discussing the history of the trust and safety field. It was wonderful seeing former colleagues and meeting new people. The cohort of fellows was impressive - I especially appreciated how thoughtful Kate Klonick was in making sure there was geographic diversity.
It was also a ton of fun to go to Louis’ Lunch - the birthplace of the hamburger. Thank you to Adam Conner - who is sitting next to me right now - for asking me to take a later train so we could check it out.
But I’m also exhausted. Reliving some of my past Facebook life can be traumatizing. So, I hope you’ll forgive me that today’s newsletter is a re-print of the blog post I put up on the Bipartisan Policy Center website last week, looking at the political policies of AI tools.
BTW make sure also to check out The Dynamist podcast this week, where I had a great discussion with Evan Swarztrauber about the role that social media plays in elections and how platforms and governments are grappling with foreign interference, privacy, and free speech.
