·1 min

A robocall featuring an AI voice resembling President Joe Biden’s has been tied to two Texas-based telecommunications companies, according to New Hampshire’s attorney general. The calls, which occurred before New Hampshire’s presidential primary, urged voters not to participate in the contest. The attorney general has issued a cease-and-desist letter to one of the companies involved and has opened a criminal investigation. The investigation is ongoing, and there is no information yet on who is behind the disinformation campaign. The attorney general stated that the use of AI to interfere with an election is a concerning issue. Biden’s campaign denounced the call as disinformation.
