Steven Feldstein, the Frank and Bethine Church chair of public affairs andan associate professor in the School of Public Service, published an article in The Conversation titled “How artificial intelligence systems could threaten democracy.”

An excerpt from the article reads:

“As my research shows, the advent of digital repression is profoundly affecting the relationship between citizen and state. New technologies are arming governments with unprecedented capabilities to monitor, track and surveil individual people. Even governments in democracies with strong traditions of rule of law find themselves tempted to abuse these new abilities.”
