When it comes to voting, research shows that most voters aren’t actually familiar with each candidate’s political policies and stances. It’s no surprise considering the torrent of clickbaiting and “alternative facts” that circulate around social media and news outlets at large. Therefore we came up with an idea for CNN that will help people to easily learn more about every single candidate (if so they choose) for any given election. At AskTheCandidate.com you will be able to create a private town hall meeting with any candidate of your choice through video chat, allowing for the unique opportunity to ask candidates whatever politically inclined questions you might have. In order to ensure accuracy and honesty, each candidate will actually be an AI bot coded with information sourced from their respective (and fact checked) interviews, debates, social media posts, and political histories.
This won 2017 Cannes Future Lions and Bronze - Clio Awards.
