Chatbots have become a new political weapon, with conservatives aiming to design bots reflecting their values amid accusations that artificial intelligence (AI) companies instill liberal bias within their programs.

Elon Musk claims OpenAI's ChatGPT language model is "woke," and has vowed to build his own chatbot.

Meanwhile, Christian nationalist-leaning social network Gab has pledged to launch AI tools with "the ability to generate content freely without the constraints of liberal propaganda wrapped tightly around its code."

Although ChatGPT's underlying data may suggest it is unprejudiced, bias could infest large language models at any point as humans select data sources, develop the training process, and modify responses.

New Zealand researcher David Rozado tweaked an already existing language model to produce responses tailored to right-leaning queries, to warn how political groups and companies could influence AI to serve their own agendas.
