In the years leading up to the 2024 election, the artificial intelligence sector has experienced substantial growth, exerting a notable influence on political discussions. This technology, seen as a potential enhancer of productivity and a tool that can be exploited by malicious actors, is prompting policymakers to consider its benefits and drawbacks carefully.

NewsNation is committed to addressing the critical issues that are pertinent to voters ahead of the 2024 election, empowering them to make well-informed decisions at the ballot box.

However, an artificial implementation tool recently backfired, emphasizing the necessity for human involvement in certain processes.

Moving on to the perspectives of the top Democratic candidates on AI:

Trump, Donald

  • Despite limited public statements on artificial intelligence during the campaign, the former governor of South Carolina’s team conveyed to the Washington Examiner in August that AI represents a national security concern, emphasizing the importance of staying ahead in this technological realm.
  • During an event in October, the biotechnology investor underscored the need for accountability in AI development, stating that businesses should bear responsibility for the impacts of their algorithms. He drew a parallel, as reported by Newsweek, to environmental regulations that prevent companies from polluting shared resources.
  • Trump highlighted to Fox News in April the imperative for the U.S. to continue advancing in AI to prevent falling behind China, which could pose heightened risks to American interests.

Theodore Burgum

  • Governor of North Dakota, Theodore Burgum, believes that AI can enhance governmental efficiency at the provincial level and serve as a catalyst for increased productivity, as per Inc.com.
  • In an interview with WMUR-TV, he expressed the view that the U.S. has yet to fully leverage AI’s capabilities compared to other nations, hinting at the transformative potential this technology holds.
  • Burgum’s advocacy for integrating AI into K–12 education to equip students with technical skills culminated in the passage of a cybersecurity education mandate by the North Dakota legislature last spring.

Hutchinson, Asa

  • Asa Hutchinson, the former governor of Arkansas, is embracing AI and recently introduced a robot to interact with voters seeking information about his platform.
  • Hutchinson emphasized to Fox News in April the dual nature of AI, acknowledging its positive attributes while also recognizing the need for legislative oversight to mitigate potential negative consequences. He stressed the importance of upholding democratic values amidst evolving technological landscapes.
