According to research conducted by the conservative watchdog group American Accountability Foundation (AAF), the Biden administration is using artificial intelligence (AI) to promote a woke, progressive ideology. The AAF warns that top officials under President Biden are aiming to inject “dangerous ideologies” into AI systems. They argue that the administration’s focus on “algorithmic discrimination” and “harmful bias” is an attempt to rig AI to follow the ideology of the woke left.
The AAF points to several examples to support their claims. They cite the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy’s “Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights,” which calls for proactive equity assessments and bias review of data used in AI system development. They also highlight the National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan, which emphasizes the need to fight harmful biases that can be present in AI systems.
The AAF argues that the Biden administration is relying on racially obsessed social academics and activists rather than scientific experts to shape technology policy. They express concern that this alignment between technology and a woke agenda could have far-reaching and troubling consequences.
The AAF’s research comes amid increasing discussions about the potential impact of AI on issues such as bias, discrimination, and disinformation. Critics warn that training AI to conform to a particular ideology or agenda can lead to misleading or false information being disseminated.
Neither the White House nor the Biden administration has provided a comment regarding these claims. The AAF states that their investigation into “woke” AI is ongoing and promises more revelations in the future.
