Extremists in the US are using AI to spread hate speech and recruit members. They are creating their own AI models to produce propaganda content, including blueprints for weapons and bomb recipes. With the upcoming election, experts are tracking extremist use of AI video tools to create misleading videos. The technology is also being used by far-right extremists to generate fake accounts and violent content at a large scale, posing a serious threat.


Extremists Weaponizing AI Technology to Spread Hate Speech

Extremists across the US have been utilizing artificial intelligence tools to amplify the dissemination of hate speech, recruit new members, and radicalize online supporters on a large scale. According to a new report from the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), a non-profit press monitoring organization based in America.

AI Content Becoming a Staple of Extremists’ Output

The report highlights that AI-generated content has become a key component of extremists’ messaging strategies. They are developing AI models infused with extremist ideologies and exploring innovative ways to leverage the technology, such as creating blueprints for 3D weapons and bomb-making instructions.

Institute’s Findings on Extremists’ AI Utilization

The Domestic Terrorism Threat Monitor researchers within MEMRI have detailed the extensive use of AI among domestic extremist groups like neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and anti-government extremists.

Simon Purdue, the director of the Domestic Terrorism Threat Monitor at MEMRI, stated that there has been a significant shift towards AI content being a prominent aspect of hateful propaganda online, particularly in video and visual formats. The trend is expected to evolve as technology advances.

AI Technology in Extremists’ Hands as US Election Nears

Purdue’s team is closely monitoring the escalation of AI technology adoption by extremists as the US election approaches, notably the increased use of AI video tools for propagating extremist narratives through visual media.

Rise of AI-Generated Video Content

Extremists are now incorporating AI-generated videos into their propaganda efforts, including creating fabricated videos depicting President Joe Biden using derogatory language and actress Emma Watson reading Mein Kampf in a Nazi uniform.

Challenges with AI-Generated Extremist Content

Adam Hadley, the executive director of Tech Against Terrorism, highlighted the dual usage of generative AI technology by extremists. They are employing AI to manage fake accounts and produce large-scale text, image, and video content, posing significant challenges in combating the spread of terrorist and violent material online.
