The AI candidate’s guide

An AI-powered candidate named ‘AI Steve’ is running for U.K. Parliament in next month’s general election. The details:

AI Steve is represented by businessman Steve Endacott and will appear as an independent candidate in the upcoming election. Voters can interact with AI Steve online to ask policy questions and raise concerns or suggestions, which the AI will incorporate based on feedback.

If elected, Endacott will serve as AI Steve’s human proxy in Parliament, attending meetings and casting votes based on the AI’s constituent-driven platform.

When you think about a robot running for office, you might picture a metal-clad candidate promising universal healthcare while tossing maple syrup pancakes to adoring crowds. It sounds like a gag ripped straight from a sci-fi comedy. The notion of AI-assisted governance isn’t just the stuff of late-night TV punchlines; it’s a fascinating – and somewhat plausible, glimpse into the future of our political landscape.
