Talk to SAM!! New Zealand gets world’s first AI politician

Uncategorized November 27, 2017

Nick Gerritsen, a New Zealand based entrepreneur has developed the world’s first artificial intelligence politician ‘SAM’, expecting the bot to run in the country’s general elections in 2020.

SAM can answer a person’s queries regarding local issues such as policies around housing, education and immigration.

While the system is not perfect, it may still help bridge the growing political and cultural divide in many countries, ‘Tech In Asia’ reported.

By late 2020, when New Zealand has its next general election, Gerritsen believes SAM will be advanced enough to run as a candidate.

“There is a lot of bias in the ‘analogue’ practice of politics right now,” said Gerritsen.

“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,” he said.

While Gerritsen acknowledges that humans biases can creep into algorithms, he said that he does not view bias as just a challenge to technology solutions

However, it is not legal for AI to contest elections.
