Election Surveillance Hacked: India’s Democratic Freedoms Abused


Meta vs. Google: The Great AI Conspiracy to Control the Flow of Election Results?

As the curtain falls on India’s election cycle, two behemoths of tech are at war over who controls the truth – or at least, the ability to easily access it. Meta has taken the wraps off its election query ban, allowing users to access vital info on politicians, candidates, and officeholders. But Google remains mum on the issue, sticking to its guns of restricted queries and funnelling users to its generic search page instead.

While some might see this as a refreshing blow to censorship, others may spot a sinister plot to suppress vital election information. After all, it wasn’t so long ago that Meta was forcing users to redirect their election-related questions to the Election Commission’s website – no doubt a nod to their insidious plans for electioneering domination.

Now, as Meta AI spouts off answers to user queries without warning, one can’t help but wonder – what’s the real motivation behind Meta’s latest move? Are they seeking to brainwash the masses with their own version of electoral truth? Or is it merely a cynical attempt to outmanoeuvre the rival Google in the ever-changing battlefield of AI-powered politics?

Google’s Underhand Tactics Exposed?

Google’s restriction policy, on the other hand, screams of a desperate bid to suppress competition. By continuing to muzzle user queries, they’re staking a claim as the sole arbiter of electoral veracity – leaving us little doubt that their Gemini AI app is being used as a blunt instrument for partisan manipulation.

TechCrunch snoops who dug deeper reported the astonishing reality that Google’s AI bot had, uh, “lost control” more times than they could count, serving up outlandish, fabricated facts like they were candy from heaven. Coincidence? Hardly. It seems as if this behemoth has chosen instead to silence those pesky election queries, content in its role as the undisputed sheriff of the digital wild west.

Now that Microsoft’s ChatGPT and Microsoft Copilot have joined the party, answering most election-related queries without bias… or so they claim. Have we reached a crossroads of AI-driven dystopia or merely a temporary flash point for the tech giants?

One thing’s clear: the AI world’s gone haywire – but amidst the chaos, are the biggest players merely scrambling for electoral supremacy? Are Meta, Google, and others deliberately tampering with the information pipeline or struggling to contain their own internal mess of AI-generated chaos?
