Technology rules the world: how far can we go?

No matter how great the temptation to delegate responsibilities related to global problems to artificial intelligence may be, not all are willing to accept such a fundamental change in the political landscape. On the one hand, AI is completely trusted to exert control over agriculture, mining, industry and energy production. This is justified: it provides maximum efficiency and minimises environmental risks. Just perfect ministers! However, more advanced roles still rest in the hands of people. After all, no one can guarantee that the éminence grise with very human ambitions (and their inherent flaws)is not controlling the artificial intelligence minister. Ultimately, what is humanity worth if it is unable to answer the question "To be or not to be?" on its own.
