ChatGPT and related artificial intelligence bots seem to be everywhere – and they raise ethical questions everywhere they go. The Project on Ethics in Political Communication was excited to host a discussion about the ethical questions raised by the use of AI and bots on political campaigns.
Our panel was:
Prof. Dave Karpf, a leading expert on digital politics and historian of the digital future;
Zainab Choudary, a strategic communication and campaign consultant who has been thinking about these questions a lot lately;
Yvonne Liccione, a political communication student whose coursework includes political communication ethics.
This is one of the first (if not the first) public discussion of the topic – but it most certainly will not be the last.
