One in five trust AI to handle state negotiations
More than a fifth of Britons would trust artificial intelligence (AI) to better handle political negotiations, including Brexit, over human politicians, new research suggests.
The survey of 2,000 people in the UK also found nearly a third would follow financial advice given to them by AI.
When asked about AI and politics, 22 per cent said they would trust an AI program over politicians to handle complex negotiations such as Brexit.
However, the research, carried out by AI firm Foundtech.ai, indicated public opinion was still conflicted on the technology, with 32 per cent of those asked saying they consider it to be a danger to society.
More than half (57 per cent) also said they were concerned AI would steal more human jobs than it would create.
