This article argues that a company has allowed an algorithm to have a weight in the decision process (i.e. to vote):
Deep Knowledge Ventures, a firm that focuses on age-related disease drugs and regenerative medicine projects, says the program, called VITAL, can make investment recommendations about life sciences firms by poring over large amounts of data.
Just like other members of the board, the algorithm gets to vote on whether the firm makes an investment in a specific company or not. The program will be the sixth member of DKV's board.
Another article suggests that AI is already used in politics (mostly in negative ways), but there are many opportunities for politics improving:
We can use AI to better listen to what people have to say and make sure their voices are being clearly heard by their elected representatives. Based on these insights, we can deploy micro-targeting campaigns that help to educate voters on a variety of political issues to help them make up their own mind.
I am wondering if there any documented instances of AI / machine learning usages in political decisions (anything from town hall to government level is fine).
Question: Is there any instance of AI / machine learning provided voting rights for political/administrative decisions?
