Factoid

Politicians had been considered Black Sheep of Society not only in India but also in most of the world. In an attempt to substitute the hypocritic politicians Nick Gerritsen of New Zealand has developed a virtual politician named SAM. Driven by artificial intelligence, SAM is designed as a female and “she” can interact with people through Facebook Messenger and discussed the issues regarding election. SAM is said to have a constantly evolving nature as “she” stores whatever “she” listens and analyse those data. According to the maker SAM may take part in election in 2020. Nick said SAM was designed with “the desire to close the gap between what voters want and what politicians promise, and what they actually achieve.” It would be interesting to see whether this hi-tech attempt would trigger a new era of politics or not.
