State Department testing new AI tools to 'combat disinformation,' Blinken says

Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Friday his department’s artificial intelligence overhaul includes testing new technology to combat foreign disinformation as part of an ambitious media monitoring and analysis project that spans the globe.

The State Department’s previous work in the field has come under congressional scrutiny following complaints that the federal government played a role in stifling speech.

With the future of the State Department’s disinformation-fighting efforts in jeopardy amid concerns about government censorship, new AI tools may give the department another means to pursue the same goals.
