SAM, created by entrepreneur Nick Gerritsen in New Zealand, is an AI-powered bot made with the aim to close the gap between what voters want, what politicians promise, and what they actually achieve. SAM’s goal is to act as a representative for all New Zealanders, and evolves based on voter input. It is directly connected to all New Zealanders through social media, and can be talked to any time, anywhere. SAM analyses everyone’s views, opinions, and the impact of potential decisions, promoting better policy for everyone. SAM’s conversational abilities are still developing, but its progression is assisted with more interactions with different people. The Marlborough entrepreneur wants SAM to run for Prime Minister at the next election in 2020.
