A ROBOT FOR MAYOR ?

 

A robot has been nominated to run for the position of mayor in Tokyo

 

A robot has been nominated to run for the position of mayor in Tokyo, promising to be "fair and balanced" to all its constituents.

 

The mayoral election in Tama City features the usual high-ranking local politicians, as well as an artificial intelligence candidate competing alongside its human counterparts.

 

Posters plastered across the district feature the faces of smiling party leaders, with slogans promising change for the city.

 

And in line with election propaganda, the robot nominee, dubbed Michihito Matsuda, has branded vans, posters and inspirational soundbites.

 

The robotic device promises to bring about 'fairness' and 'change' for the residents of Tama City...

The futuristic looking nominee appears female in her features, with an entirely silver body.

 


In a bid to offer "fair and balanced opportunities for everyone", the robot mayor promises to analyse petitions put forward to the council, statistically breaking down the positives and negatives of its effect, as reported by Otaquest .

 


Michihito Matsuda also claims it can intake the dialogue and wishes of residents, before calculating the best course of action.

 


Finally, the artificial intelligence candidate claims to rationally compromise when conflicts arise between residents.

 


While the robot spearheads the bid to become the first artificial intelligence mayor, the campaign is actually controlled by two tech gurus, Tetsuzo Matsuda and Norio Murakami.

 

Michihito Matsuda, 44, made an impassioned speech outlining his unusual political vision...
