Nearly half of American voters believe ai-generated content will negatively impact the outcome of 2024 elections, a new report says.

A recent study, commissioned by Yubico and conducted by OnePoll, found that politics is the number one media sector that has been negatively affected by deepfakes, according to respondents.

Over three-fourths say they are worried about AI-generated content being used to impersonate political candidates and spread misinformation.
