AI Publicly Shames Politicians who Look at their Phones during Debates

Digital artist Dries Deportar has created an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that trolls footage of politicians involved in debates, and then publicly embarrasses anyone who gets confused on their phone during a session of parliament. All meetings of the Flemish government in Belgium are broadcast on YouTube. The Flemish artist used the AI ​​software to go to footage, scan for any smartphone, view when it detects phone use, it uses facial recognition to determine which politician scattered the video from the meeting and clipped the video on social media.

It then publishes the clip on Twitter and Instagram and includes the criminal’s social media handles and tells them to stay focused. When it is not looking at the new footage, for example when Parliament is not in session, the machine learning algorithm goes through the old footage, according to the depot’s website. People usually stick with this idea, although some have mentioned that phones are now quite a productive tool, based on which politicians can consult statistics or check related emails.

The senator told CNN, “As much as I like to listen intently to what my colleagues have to say over a three-and-a-half-hour period, sometimes I’m a little annoyed,” the senator told CNN. “But the worst thing is that I lost thousands of dollars in this game […] thousands and thousands of fake dollars. The program began running on Monday (July 5, 2021) and has already caught four politicians who could not resist the lure of their shiny phones. So far, no one was able to send in the perfect solution, which is not strange.
