Robots Would Make Better Politicians Than Humans?

If you answered “Yes,” “Hell yes!”, “When can the robot start?” or any other form of affirmative, you’re part of a sizable minority that thinks this is a good idea and could actually happen very soon. Are you ready for the Robotic Party? Mayor Bender? President C-3PO?

According to a new poll in the UK by the software firm OpenText, 26 percent of those surveyed chose a robot or some form of artificial intelligence technology over human politicians when asked who or what would make better government decisions. Even more interesting, 66 percent of the  respondents predicted that robots will actually be working in government jobs by 2037 and 16 percent gave the frightening (or maybe not) forecast of AI politicians within the next two years.

AI and cognitive technologies will give organizations across all sectors, faster access to sophisticated insights, and consequently empower them to make better decisions for customers, employee and the business overall.

Mark Bridger, vice president at OpenText, said in an interviewwith Computer Business Review that he believes the “opportunity for innovation and change is limitless.” That sounds like a typical campaign slogan for a human politician (and vaguely familiar). While it makes sense and has been proven to be true already in the businesses of manufacturing, health care and retail, is government really a “business” that can benefit from robotics? Full Story

6 reasons why robots would make better rulers than politicians

ower corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. Yet AI leaders would be truly altruistic. To achieve this, we could program computers with agreed ethical standards and make decisions on predefined guidelines. Bots are already invading the corridors of power. There is an AI that automatically writes speeches. And, in America, a man ironically named after a fortune-telling machine in tacky beachside resorts challenged a supercomputer called Watson for the presidency. Zoltan Istvan ran for the Transhumanist Party, which advocates research into technologies such as AI, bionics, and, umm, conquering death.

However, in the end, both IBM and the law, which forbids anyone except a natural-born citizen to run, put paid to this campaign. But what of the issue of cyber security? Could a robot leader be hacked, then influenced by another nation? What if, say, Putin was the puppet master of the President, with his finger on the button of certain apocalyptic annihilation? Full Story

1 in 4 Think Robot Politicians Would Outperform Human ones

The research by software firm OpenText found 26 percent of the 2,000 participants surveyed believe artificial intelligence technology would make better decisions than elected government officials. The survey also found that two thirds of people expect to see robots working in government within the next two decades.

“The digital revolution will drive an increasing reliance on self-service technology, machine-to-machine communication and AI, and there is no denying that every job in every industry will be impacted,” Mark Bridger, vice president at OpenText, told Computer Business Review.

At a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) last year, experts warned that machines could leave half the world’s population unemployed within 30 years.

“Historically, one of the big problems with leaders is that they are selfish mammals,” Istvan toldNewsweek at the time. “An artificial intelligence president could be truly altruistic. It wouldn’t be susceptible to lobbyists, special interest groups or personal desires.

“I think in 2020 you will see a field emerge with competing AI robots for president, who want to debate and discuss policy. It’s unlikely any of them will be sophisticated enough to take on the job, but I do believe by 2028 robots may be suitable for political office—including the presidency. Full Story
