The Danger: Digicracy and Artificial Intelligence



Exploring the exaggerated apprehensions about Artificial Intelligence (Ai) and digital democracy, this essay contrasts these with the indifference towards real threats posed by unregulated technological acceleration. The investigation reveals a significant discrepancy between the fears often associated with Ai and the actual, more pressing dangers overlooked in the current debate. By scrutinizing unfounded fears and delineating the «worst scenario» that Ai might indeed pose, a new analytical framework is proposed to address and possibly mitigate these threats. This analysis emphasizes the urgent need to focus on the political implications of Ai to safeguard democracy and human autonomy, highlighting the importance of oversight in the technological domain.
