Romania's Prime Minister has unveiled a new "honorary assistant" completely powered by artificial intelligence or AI.
This computer screen is called "Ion".
This artificial intelligence has been developed by researchers to quickly analyze the opinions of Romanians.
People will be able to chat with Ion on the project's website.
The AI will also search social media to figure out what the topics are that people are talking about and to carry out what's called sentiment analysis.
And that means it will analyze whether there is a positive or a negative reaction to a certain event, for example.
So how exactly is this Ion AI assistant going to help the Romanian government?
Well, we asked the question to Nicu Sebe, the coordinator of the research team.
"I don't expect that the Prime Minister will always do what Ion will say.
But it's more like a suggestion. It's more like, you know, getting the pulse in real time of the population.
它更像是给出一个建议 。更像是，实时把握人口的状态 。
With this type of system, we hope to reach out a large segment of the Romanian population."
