Microsoft founder and billionaire Bill Gates said AI should be considered as a tool to combat “digital misinformation” and “political polarization” in an interview published on Thursday with Handelsblatt, a German news media outlet.
In response to a question about the spreading of “misinformation” via AI, Gates referred to the events of January 6, 2021, as an “attack on the Capitol. He said:
I’m certainly concerned about political polarization, and I know the U.S. situation best of all. I wouldn’t have expected people to attack the Capitol, or people to deny the validity of election results. I‘m in a state of shock about that.
We can’t blame AI for that. That happened. It may have been magnified by digital channels that allow various conspiracy theories like QAnon or whatever to be blasted out by people who wanted to believe those things. So, the digital tools may have played an auxiliary role.
Gates added, “You’ll have to take AI into consideration” to “solve the digital misinformation [problem].” He described “political polarization” as another social ill that could be partially remedied via the use of AI to reduce “confirmation bias.”
Gates framed “climate change” as an existential threat to humanity while calling for government measures to force reductions and eventual elimination of fossil fuel consumption and associated carbon dioxide emissions.
“It’s not optional to have a solution for climate,” he held, adding that carbon dioxide emissions must be brought “to zero” via “clean energy” and “green energy” substitutes.
Development of reliable and affordable energy is in harmony with governmental pursuits of eliminating fossil fuels and development of “green infrastructure,” Gates claimed.
In other news, Gates is “shocked” no one believes in the tooth fairy, too.
What a vile, disgusting, amoral man.

Gates believes climate change threatens us, but our government does not.
Gates is an NPC and always has been.
“First climate change, then world health, then food and water, and now misinformation. Bill Gates wants to dominate everything in the universe. With the advent and use of GPT-4 and ChatGPT at Microsoft, is Gates thinking that its AI can stifle dissent against the Technocrat takeover of the world? This could be the existential end of Free Speech if it is not rejected.” Technocrat takeover of the world? Are you serious? Who are they going to take it over from? The communists? The “elite”? The “families”? The illuminati, annunaki, aliens, royal bloodlines, Rothschilds. etc.? You guys here are just as… Read more »
Maybe you should try reading a book.
All you need to know about Gates is to watch him in that anti-trust testimony before congress so many years ago. It reveals a weak, cowardly slug. Something that is beneath human. Something that should be frog marched out of the human conference room with disgust.
I suspect that some people are gullible enough to believe AI lies too. Some are still believing the medical lies, covid lies, climate change lies, genders lies, etc. Hopefully some of us will continue to reject AI and every lie the its tell. Since many humans are naturally untrustworthy. It baffles me why anyone would dare trust AI when malicious, deceptive and devilish people are behind the creation of AI and every evil other creation under the sun. I believe that AI, central bank digital currency and the vaccine passport will all evolve into the mark of the beast mentioned… Read more »
