AI Chatbots Running for Office – The Future of Politics?

In Short:

In Wyoming, a man named Victor Miller created a chatbot named VIC. VIC is programmed to focus on transparency, economic development, and innovation in governance. VIC can differentiate between real constituent concerns and spam. In the UK, a candidate named AI Steve is on the ballot, developed by Jeremy Smith. AI Steve collects community feedback and uses validators to ensure the policies it focuses on are important to constituents.
