United Russia attracted artificial intelligence to fight opponents of the Special military operation

9 января 2023, 07:08
The United Russia party has started using artificial intelligence to purge the base of its supporters: studying comments on social networks, United Russia members delete opponents of a special military operation (SMO) from it.

This is reported by Vedomosti with the reference to its own sources in the ranks of the United Russia party. Party functionaries started "cleaning" the ranks on the eve of a new electoral cycle. Within its framework, significant regional election campaigns will be held in 2023 in a number of subjects of the Russian Federation, and presidential elections will be held in 2024.

The results of the purge turned out to be disastrous: out of 25 million people who were included in the base of United Russia supporters in the country, only 9 million remained on this list, Forbes notes. After such an impoverishment, there are 4 million citizens in the base who openly speak in support of their own.

The search for disloyal persons is carried out in social networks. The main basis for the work of the involved artificial intelligence (AI) is the Odnoklassniki and VKontakte networks.

AI algorithms are configured in such a way that for each approving post, activity in groups and likes, citizens are assigned points, and then the names are checked with the base of supporters.

After 65% of the former supporters turned out to be disloyal, they were expelled and began searching for new personnel in their place. Special attention in this work is paid to regions where opposition activity is strong. The goal of this work is to collect 30 million supporters by 2024.

Earlier it was reported that on the eve of the New Year holidays, United Russia was given new manuals with instructions on how to behave during the holidays. The deputies of the State Duma were advised not to swear and not to publicly demonstrate their wealth, exclusive vacations at expensive foreign resorts and luxury goods.
