The Kitty AI:
Artificial Intelligence
for Governance 

Pinar Yoldas, 2016

#Fake Me Hard VIRTUAL

It is the year 2039. It’s no longer the presidents, prime ministers, and royal families who are in power, but an artificial intelligence (AI). To seduce and mislead us, this AI has taken the shape of an adorable kitten. Kitty AI holds a monologue about her origins and the way she will govern. As the first non-human governor, she leads a politician-free zone with a network of AI’s. Because she lives in mobile devices, she can be anywhere at any time and give attention to up to 3 million people at once. Is this what leaders will look like when the algorithms take over?
