Co-founders of the AI Democracy Projects Alondra Nelson, Harold F. Linder Professor in the School of Social Science, and Julia Angwin have penned an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times about the use of "artificial intelligence platforms to answer questions of where, when and how to vote."

With these findings, they then argue for increased government regulation and transparency from tech companies, who should be "publicly disclosing information about vulnerabilities in their products and sharing evidence of how they are doing so by performing regular testing."
