Despite a long list of restrictions and obvious disadvantages of existing technologies, a significant part of the inhabitants of Europe and China believe that the AI will cope with the work of politicians better than people do, they found out the IE University experts.

The idea of replacing parliament on the AI was especially popular in Spain, where 66% of respondents were supported. In addition to Spain, the most adherents of the transfer of the legislative authority algorithms were registered in Italy and Estonia — 59% and 56%, respectively. At the same time, in some European countries, the majority of surveyed have yet negatively relate to so fundamental changes — among them the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Germany.
