New York City Mayor Eric Adams is using artificial intelligence to send robocalls in multiple languages, despite not being fluent in those languages, raising ethical concerns. While the move aims to reach diverse communities, it has drawn criticism from privacy and surveillance experts who find it deceptive and “deeply unethical.” Adams defended the initiative as a way to make the city more welcoming, but concerns linger about the potential for misinformation. The use of AI to simulate language proficiency sparks debates over transparency and the balance between communication and ethics.
