Upcoming elections in over 50 countries, including the US and Poland, will encourage creators of harmful content to increase their activities using artificial intelligence. The most deepfakes are likely to be created in the summer of this year. Analysts have investigated which places in the digital world are incubators for "bad actors" and have created a map of them. Small platforms are the main source of the creation and distribution of harmful content.

"Everyone talks about what AI can achieve when it operates unchecked in social media. Considering the threats and so-called bad actors, and the elections that are due to take place in many countries this year, including Poland, probably also in the UK, and certainly in the US and India – a total of 3 billion people will be voting – we are dealing with the problem of fake news and disinformation on the internet. Of course, a lot can go wrong," said Prof. Neil Johnson, a physicist at George Washington University and director of the Dynamic Online Networks Laboratory, which maps the Internet.
