As 4 billion people world-wide head to the polls, will 2024 be the last year ever of traditional elections? From now on, will the winning candidate will be the one with the greatest ability to manipulate reality through filters, algorithms,bots, generate fake news, and fake identities? ,Will AI transform electoral integrity, and does it pose an irreversible threat to the very foundations of democracy? Or, conversely, will AI tools help people to organize, mobilize, collect funds, and raise awareness? Will it transform news and journalism?
