Albeit satire, Matt Negrin of Fortune suggests that we should do away with human politicians and replace them with artificial intelligence who would truly represent the desires of the majority regardless of what that majority wants. A similar suggestion was made in 2016 to elect IBM's Watson as the next U.S. president.
Take gun control. There’s a bill in Congress to take away guns. Our artificially smart Congressperson puts a poll on their site: “Should I vote for or against this bill?” Two options: “for,” and “against.” Constituents log in through a secure portal, vote on the issue, and then our “A.I.” representative votes accordingly. See? So easy! We just solved America’s existential crisis about guns.
The best part is that this proxy Congressperson who votes based on poll results doesn’t even have to know anything about anything. It’s a great job for Steve King.
