AI bot ‘Jennifer’ reaches out to California voters in support of Congress candidate – Global


Jennifer, an artificial intelligence volunteer, spent her weekend calling California voters to encourage them to vote in the upcoming primary election for Democrat Peter Dixon. She can make thousands of calls without breaks and maintains a cool demeanor. Dixon’s campaign recently began using Jennifer, developed by Civox, to reach more people efficiently while human volunteers focus on personal interactions. Despite concerns about AI technology, Dixon believes in using it ethically and transparently. Civox’s co-founders are working on AI tools for politics and believe that campaigns with the best technology will have an advantage in the future. They acknowledge the challenges of creating believable AI characters that can have fluid conversations and respond quickly. Despite concerns about disinformation, Jennifer and other AI volunteers using Civox technology are upfront about their artificial identity and do not pretend to be someone they are not.
