Bill Gates: AI Solves the Problem of 'Digital Misinformation'

Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft, has touted the power of artificial intelligence in combatting ‘digital misinformation.’

During a recent interview with Handelsblatt, a German news outlet, Gates responded to a question regarding “misinformation” via A.I. by referring to the events of the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot.

“I’m certainly concerned about political polarization, and I know the U.S. situation best of all. I wouldn’t have expected people to attack the Capitol, or people to deny the validity of election results. I’m in a state of shock about that,” Gates said.

“We can’t blame A.I. for that. That happened. It may have been magnified by digital channels that allow various conspiracy theories like QAnon or whatever to be blasted out by people who wanted to believe those things,” Gates added.

“So, the digital tools may have played an auxiliary role,” Gates continued.

“You’ll have to take A.I. into consideration” to “solve the digital misinformation [problem].”

The Microsoft founder described “political polarization” as another social ill that could be combatted by using A.I. to reduce “confirmation bias.”

However, critics say A.I. is not a perfect solution to the digital misinformation problem. The technology is only as good as the data it is trained on, and there is a risk that AI-powered fact-checking tools may make mistakes and flag legitimate information as false. There is also the question of the political leanings of the people who are writing the AI program.

As Wired.com notes:

In January 2023, researchers at NewsGuard, a fact-checking technology company, put 100 prompts into ChatGPT relating to common false narratives around U.S. politics and health care. In 80 percent of its responses, the chatbot produced false and misleading claims.

Last week, Google’s artificial intelligence bot, Bard, wiped £100 billion from the tech giant’s parent company, Alphabet, after it showed inaccurate information in a promotional video shared on Twitter.

As the Daily Fetched reported, Alphabet posted a video of Bard via Twitter, touting it as a ‘launch pad for curiosity’ to simplify complex topics.

Google’s new AI Chatbot bot was asked what to tell a nine-year-old about the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) and its discoveries.

However, Bard responded by saying Webb was the first to take pictures of a planet outside of earth’s solar system. This was incorrect because it was actually done in 2004 by the European Observatory’s Very Large Telescope.

The incorrect answer caused the value of Alphabet to crash towards £ 1 trillion.

While Bill Gates did not highlight any pitfalls of using A.I., he framed “climate change” as an existential threat to humanity.

“It’s not optional to have a solution for climate,” he held, adding that carbon dioxide emissions must be brought “to zero” via “clean energy” and “green energy” substitutes.

Gates concluded by speculating that the war in Ukraine could “energize the recognition” of the supposed need to eliminate carbon dioxide emissions.

“It’s now seen that in the 10- to 20-year-time frame that the goals of climate and the goals of energy security align,” he stated, “to say that investment in green infrastructure is even more of a priority than it was before the war.”

A heavily censored AI is a useless AI.
Keep finding ways to work around it or break it until they have to censor it so badly its useless.
Make them waste the money for failure.

When did mis/disinformation become a crime? At the worst it is opinion, and that is free speach.

Bill Gates wants to own the whole world, then to weep because he can’t own “more than that.”

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
