Elections are increasingly susceptible to AI-enabled threats—from the spread of malicious deepfakes intended to sew discord to the surreptitious manipulation of public opinion on social media through disinformation. This presentation provides examples of the use of deepfakes and disinformation to influence elections and the legislative and industry actions that have been taken to mitigate their harmful effects. The presentation concludes with recommendations for appropriate technology and policy strategies that can be implemented by the public and private sectors to better support election integrity in the age of AI.
