With trust in politicians declining, Fran Mols and Jonathan Roberts from the University of Queensland, propose replacing government representatives with machine code. While this wouldn't resolve some moral or ethical issues, it may cut down on red tape, costs, and influence. The Watson 2016 Foundation had already proposed IBM's Watson to be the next U.S. president.
So even if we had a parliament full of robots, we would still need an agency staffed by humans charged with defining the ethical standards to be programmed into the robots.
And who gets to decide on those ethical standards? Well we’d probably have to put that to the vote between various interested and competing parties.
This bring us full circle, back to the problem of how to prevent undue influence.
