Robots and artificial intelligence are two hot topics these days. The popularity of these technologies is growing all over the world. In a district in Tokyo, Tama, a robot endowed with AI, has been "a candidate" for municipal elections.
Behind the poster robot is in fact a person: Michihito Matsuda, aged 44. The candidate promised in the election campaign to replace as many city officials as artificial intelligence
The goal was to change Tama through "impartial and balanced" policies created by this technology. Moreover, according to Matsuda, artificial intelligence is not corrupt
The elections were held on April 15th. We do not know the results yet, but Michihito Matsuda was not very well in the polls.
