(KGTV) - Did an artificial intelligence candidate really get thousands of votes in an election?

Basically, yes.

The candidate got about 4,000 votes in an election this week in Japan.

It's actually a real person who said he'd use a.i. to make decisions that are impartial and balanced. He even used an a.i. avatar on his campaign posters.
