2 min read

On Thursday  Microsoft said it has detected a Chinese-controlled network of social media accounts that uses A.I. technology to impersonate American voters and spread propaganda to influence U.S. politics.

Microsoft’s report said the suspected Chinese influence network was similar to past operations that have been linked to the Chinese Ministry of Public Security.

Microsoft on Thursday said it has detected a Chinese-controlled network of social media accounts that uses A.I. technology to impersonate American voters and spread propaganda to influence U.S. politics.

Microsoft’s report said the suspected Chinese influence network was similar to past operations that have been linked to the Chinese Ministry of Public Security.

The difference with the new network is that it began using generative A.I. in March 2023 to “mimic U.S. voters” and produce content that was “more eye-catching than the awkward visuals used in previous campaigns by Chinese nation-state actors, which relied on digital drawings, stock photo collages, and other manual graphic designs.”

“These images are most likely created by something called diffusion-powered image generators that use A.I. to not only create compelling images but also learn to improve them over time,” Microsoft said.

The influence network engaged in “a broad campaign that largely focuses on politically divisive topics.

You can tell by the Images used, and the messages attached to them, that the Communist Chinese Government’s operation is promoting  and parroting the Narratives and talking points associated with those of the Democrat party.

A Microsoft spokesperson told Reuters on Thursday that the China-linked accounts “attempted to appear American by listing their public location as within the United States, posting American political slogans, and sharing hashtags relating to domestic political issues.”

Microsoft’s threat report made some other general observations about Chinese cyber activity, including “the South China Sea, the U.S. defense industrial base, and U.S. critical infrastructure” as the top three subjects of Chinese hacking activity in 2023.
