SAM: World’s first AI Politician has been developed by scientist Nick Gerritsen. Who thought we would see something like an artificial intelligence politician!
World’s first AI Politician has been developed by the scientists. This Artificial Intelligence Politician has abilities to answer a person’s queries about issues like policies related to education, immigration, and even housing. The virtual politician is called “SAM” and has been created by Nick Gerritsen who is a 49 years old Entrepreneur in New Zealand. According to Nick Gerritsen, “There is a lot of bias in the ‘analogue’ practice of politics right now. There seems to be so much existing bias that countries around the world seem unable to address fundamental and multiple complex issues like climate change and equality.” The world’s first AI politician is very smart as we would expect it to be and it is learning to respond to users via its homepage survey and also through Facebook Messenger.
Gerritsen said that he doesn’t view bias as a challenge for technology solutions though he understands about human biases creeping into algorithms. As per the Tech In Asia reports: While the system is not perfect, it may still help bridge the growing cultural and political divide in a lot of countries. Gerritsen also said, “SAM is an enabler and we plan to operate within existing legal boundaries.” Later in the year 2020, New Zealand will be having its next general election and the scientist Gerritsen has a strong belief that the virtual AI Politician SAM will be really advanced by then and can even run as a candidate. However, as of now, it is not legal for any type of Artificial Intelligence to be a contestant for an election.
Let’s wait and watch what more technology has to offer and you never know, we might be able to see the world’s first AI Politician as a candidate in the election.
