    AI is so good at drawing pictures and driving cars, why not let it govern a country?

    Can not be more hallucinatory than any number of the world's leaders. Why not give it a whirl?

      Shirley you must be joking, the road agencies there are so corrupt even the locals don't believe what they say are commitments. Case in point is the "New Road" in Pune, Maharastra, where there are bus stands 1m up in the air in the middle of the road -- that people are now living in as the intended use ain't happening!
