The Watson 2016 Foundation is advocating for the use of IBM's Watson to become President of the United States. The idea is that the role of a politician is a complex one that requires the ability to "analyze an immense wealth of data" and to "make informed and transparent decisions," a role perfectly suited for artificial intelligence.

Watson marks a shift in machine learning in that it was designed to compete against humans using natural language processing in both accuracy of answer as well as speed. It must understand a question, use the key information elements in the question to analyze an immense wealth of data, and derive the top candidates for answers. This is a task all politicians undergo on a daily basis, including the president, and could be more suitably and efficiently executed by an artificial intelligence.
