Biden’s AI Plan to Censor You Revealed: Researchers Say Americans Can’t ‘tell fact from fiction’; House Panel Demands Records From Agency Overseeing Biden’s AI Plan After Censorship Outrage

Biden’s AI plan to censor you revealed: Researchers say Americans can’t ‘tell fact from fiction’:
Twitter’s censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story in 2020 could soon be possible on an industrial scale — thanks to AI tools being built with funding from his father’s administration, a report from Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee claimed Tuesday.
The report reveals how the Biden administration is spending millions on artificial intelligence research designed to make anti “misinformation” tools which could then be passed to social media giants.
And it discloses how researchers who got funding for the plan — known as “Track F” — emailed each other to say that Americans could not tell fact from fiction online, and that conservatives and veterans were even more susceptible than the public at large.
The report was published by the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Weaponization of Government, which is chaired by Jim Jordan (R-OH).
It casts new light on how funding from the National Sciences Foundation is being given to elite institutions including Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Madison-Wisconsin and the University of Michigan, for a program called “Trust & Authenticity in Communication Systems.”
“Track F” was launched to identify “misinformation” and create “education and training materials” for those with “vulnerabilities to disinformation methods.”
It is part of a larger initiative, “The Convergence Accelerator Program,” that aims to solve issues with “significant national impact” by finding high-level research and which was quietly launched in 2021.
In theory, tools like this could be used to remove child pornography or deepfake photos — like the nude images created of Taylor Swift.
But the Republicans’ report details how researchers working on the technology aimed to censor the general public, with the $13 million program’s manager Michael Pozmantier describing it as “focused on combatting mis/disinformation.” --->READ MORE HERE
House panel demands records from agency overseeing Biden’s AI plan after censorship outrage:
The House Judiciary Committee has subpoenaed the Biden administration agency implementing an artificial intelligence research program to combat “misinformation” online — that would also help social media giants censor Americans’ free speech.
Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) wrote in a Tuesday letter exclusively obtained by The Post that the National Science Foundation (NSF) “has not produced the highest priority documents” about the controversial research program and failed to comply with voluntary requests for nearly a year.
The subpoena demands that NSF director Sethuraman Panchanathan hand over all internal records discussing the suppression or restriction of online content — including any potential documents on The Post’s censored October 2020 reports based on emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Other moderated content may include views on the origins of COVID-19, the efficacy of vaccines and other pandemic-era concerns; foreign and domestic election interference; the “Twitter Files” and the censoring of journalists; transgender issues; abortion; climate change; guns; and “the use of financial services and systems to further political or social objectives.”
“It is necessary for Congress to gauge the extent to which NSF officials have coerced, pressured, worked with, or relied upon social media and other tech companies and third parties to censor speech,” Jordan told Panchanathan.
“Moreover, the Committee is in possession of documents that demonstrate that NSF personnel regularly interacted and communicated with organizations receiving NSF funds, including for projects that focused on combatting alleged misinformation online. NSF has yet to produce any records related to these communications or any other meetings.” --->READ MORE HERE
