The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced on February 8, 2024, a ban on AI-generated robocalls, particularly those using AI-generated voices. This decision falls under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, aiming to protect consumers from scams and prevent election misinformation. The ban was prompted by incidents involving deepfake robocalls, including one mimicking President Joe Biden’s voice to spread false election information. The ruling enables state attorneys general to take legal action against such deceptive practices and highlights the growing need to regulate AI technology for its ethical and legal use, especially in the context of elections and consumer protection.
