Machine to run for mayor in Japan pledging 'fair opportunities for all'

The robot is campaigning under the slogan "Artificial Intelligence will change Tama city”.
election in the west of the Japanese capital features high-ranking
local politicians, as well as the robotic candidate competing against
its human counterparts.
A prelude to the coming of the three magi?
I'm reminded of that scene in the first GitS movie where the android argues their humanity. This is certainly interesting if it isn't a gimmick/satire.
Well, we know it'll secure the weeaboo demographic.
I predicted long ago that machine learning AI could probably do a better job at being a politician, and am unsurprised that Japan is the first nation to give it a go.
I'm sure there's a lot of risks with something like this but honestly things are already pretty fucked regarding politics so might as well give it a go.
i believe that AI may alread be governing USA's government.
Black mirror anyone?
Does it have to look like that
Shit I'd vote for it. Maybe a machine can do what the Japanese government can't and actually fix Japan's toxic work climate.
But citizens would not however vote for the AI Mayor, as robots cannot technically run for office, but will instead vote for the human Michihito Matsuda with the idea.
Pretty sensationalist, when it also doesn't include any details about the underlying tech. As of right now, any AI is limited to bots that can be trained to be good at one task. So if say, a bot was trained to figure out better city planning, optimize infrastructure or balance city resources then I'd believe it. But generalized AI is still past the horizon.
Of course they had to give it tits
Does a machine have inherently as much corruptability as a human?
And that itself is determined by who created it.
I opened the thread, and I immediately recognized the robot in the advertisements.
It's a fucking Daz3D asset. I remember finding it when I was looking for robot models randomly some months back.
I wonder if they had to pay a license to use it. I know Daz3D has, like, a $500 commercial-use license or something for most of its assets. I'd think advertisements, even for public office, would count as commercial use.
With the current mannerisms that in in Japanese social society. I can only imagine what a president or mayor that is robotic might act like in times of war, based off of anime type correspondence.
Can't wait for someone to hack it and use it to mine bitcoin
Bitch please I know a real AI to govern a population when I see one
the only real wifu would of been dead for 45 years
I assure you, the Ignorance is far from Artificial.
I support it. machines have no prior biases towards race, gender, ect.
They'd be the most fair. Robots don't hide secrets or start scandals, or take bribes for that matter.
thats what a robot would say 🔫
"I recognize that bulge!"
Someone has to program it, someone who has bias and is corruptible. It's far from impossible for some big company to invest in these people making the AI favour their profit over others.
Not to mention it's a machine. Machines are not invulnerable to attack methods, even on a closed circuit. Even if it was built to be perfect, it doesn't mean it can't/won't be modified after the fact. If there's a port, you can infect the heck out of it.
Kinda like STDs/STIs but less gross.
So we've over halfway through the plot of Asimo'vs I, Robot already? Where's all the space mining.
Aye, it's basically impossible to build an AI without bias. Even if you were to have a theoretical system that didn't have any inherent biases that would naturally arise in practice during creation, bias would still develop depending on the data used and also what gets used and what doesn't. Since that bias is a lot subtler, you'll end up with the fun situation of the bias flying over people's heads a lot more often than it does currently.
