Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the automation of certain tasks of human intellectual competence. AI embraces techniques tackling aspects of human intellect using machines. Algorithmic governance discloses that AI is already employed in many facets of government but it seems that the prospective advantages from AI in politics are heavily contested. AI not only functions within the domain of national law but also encompasses the realm of regional and international law. The political configurations of a jurisdiction rework its tendency to generate and diffuse new technologies. AI drastically revolutionizes the existing political paradigm, allowing more diffused forms of political participation beyond elections such as unrestricted disclosure of governmental data online.
