We are going to tell the intriguing tale of Andrew Gray and the recent events at the Selby by-election, along with the technology that fueled his campaign. What makes this story crucial for every organisational leader, from politics or business, is the potential application of this technology.
Andrew Gray recently took a shot at securing a seat in the Houses of Parliament as an independent candidate during the Selby by-election. Though he didn’t emerge victorious, he garnered significant media attention, introducing himself as the world’s first AI ballot box candidate. Unique to his campaign, Andrew declared he possessed “no policies,” intending instead to rely on AI for legislative purposes.
While the concept of supplanting traditional binary politics with a more democratic approach is compelling, our focus, as technologists, is in the underlying AI platform that powered his campaign. It’s worth noting that the implications of this platform aren’t confined to politics. Business and technology leaders will undoubtedly find this of interest.
