Eric Schmidt Warns Politicians That Elections Will Forever Change

by , Comments

The Financial Times reports that Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google, warned politicians at a Tory party conference in Bournemouth that the outcome of general elections will be changed "within five years" by what Eric Schmidt calls "truth predictor" software.


A politician may be making claims live during a debate and a voter will be searching the internet to validate those claims, in real time.

Schmidt said, “One of my messages to them is to think about having every one of your voters online all the time, then inputting ‘is this true or false?' We [at Google] are not in charge of truth but we might be able to give a probability.”
