World’s first AI politician SAM developed

Scientists have developed the world’s first artificial intelligence politician that can answer a person’s queries regarding local issues such as policies around housing, education and immigration.

The virtual politician, called SAM, was created by Nick Gerritsen, a 49-year-old entrepreneur in New Zealand.

The AI politician is constantly learning to respond to people through Facebook Messenger as well as a survey on its homepage.

While the system is not perfect, it may still help bridge the growing political and cultural divide in many countries, Tech In Asia reported. Mr. Gerritsen believes SAM will be advanced enough to run as a candidate by 2020.
