Artificial Intelligence based Virtual Assistant for current state of issues in the US

Recently, a virtual assistant ‘Alisa’, is nominated against Vladmir Putin, in the 2018 Russian presidential elections. Maybe its time to consider alternative political systems based on more logical and rational thought processes, in the US.

So far, the virtual assistant has over 80,000 ‘votes’ from citizens requesting a place for it on the ballot next year. That’s not a nothing-burger of a number. According to its campaign website (as translated from Russian by Google’s AI):
Alisa is a non-standard candidate. The CEC can reject the application and not allow the robot to run for president. If you believe in and want modern Russia to become a textbook on world history; sign a petition. It only needs 300,000 votes.

No sane news outlet is going to start speculating that Alisa has a snowball’s chance in hell of doing anything other gaining some press for the company that makes it (Yandex). That being said, its platform has the potential to resonate.

Alisa’s campaign breaks down six reasons why Russians should vote for it:

  • Weighted solutions: the robot uses logic and algorithms to come up with rational solutions.
  • It’s fast: AI ‘thinks’ and ‘reacts’ faster than humans.
  • 24/7 access: It will always be working (and never go golfing).
  • A true listener: It considers the opinion of everyone who interacts with it.
  • Never tires or ages: Unlike stupid humans who waste tax dollars sleeping and growing old.
  • Everyone gets a personal relationship: Alisa can remember everyone who interacts with it, with perfect accuracy.

Based on the current state of issues in the US, like tax reform, border control, healthcare, education, gun control, and military spending, we could use some algorithm-based insight. Maybe Siri could solve the deficit issue, who knows. Someone should get these two together and start working on a campaign.

It is refreshing to see that level of honesty in politics. When’s the last time an American politician unabashedly admitted they didn’t know something. Maybe, we can start with the unimportant positions that pretty much anyone could do; like President and Vice President.
