Welcome to this edition of the Weekly Political Compass from Teneo's political risk advisory team! This week, we are taking a closer look at the political biases embedded within artificial intelligence (AI) models and how they impact the results of the popular political compass test.

We asked the hot new AI models from OpenAI, Meta, and Google to take four popular political quizzes, eager to uncover any underlying biases. The results were intriguing, as it became evident that the AI model selected significantly influenced the test-taker's political leaning. New research explains that you'll get more right- or left-wing answers depending on which AI model you ask.

AI models have long been criticized for biases, and this study sheds light on how these biases manifest in political assessments. The implications are far-reaching, as these AI models are increasingly being used to interpret and analyze political opinions on a wide scale.

One interesting finding was the impact of an individual's outlook on the role of government in their attitude toward Bitcoin, a decentralized revolution. Bitcoin itself may be apolitical, but an individual's perspective on government involvement often informs their stance on this digital currency.

A study conducted by researchers at the University of Washington provided further evidence of the political biases inherent in different AI Language Models (LLMs). Their research revealed the troubling reality that even major LLM-based chatbots, like ChatGPT, lack objectivity when it comes to political issues. These biases raise concerns about the objectivity and reliability of AI models in analyzing political ideologies.

In a recent online political compass quiz, popular Twitch streamer xQc faced criticism from the Twitch community for his divisive answers. This incident highlights the need for individuals to be aware of their biases while taking such quizzes and for AI models to be developed and trained with greater attention to objectivity.

In conclusion, the political compass test has become a popular tool for individuals to assess their political leanings. However, the biases inherent in AI models used to analyze these tests raise concerns about the accuracy and objectivity of the results. It is crucial for AI developers to address these biases and ensure greater transparency and accountability in the algorithms used. Only then can we trust AI models to provide unbiased and reliable political assessments.
