For your information: Adok/Hugi is running for the European Parliament 2019 elections. Here you can watch a presentation he delivered to members of his party (in German). The feedback so far is very good.
A rough translation of the presentation:
<<My credo is: Our future lies in key technologies. Or, to put it in more detail: in mastering these key technologies.
It is unacceptable that it is predominantly people who determine politics, who have a little knowledge of law and/or economics, but not of modern technology. The fact is that the last twenty years have brought many changes to mankind and that these changes are mainly due to computer technology. The possibilities offered by the Internet (and used by many) have the potential to change our society from the ground up.
The freedom of the Internet, in particular, so that anyone can be active as a journalist, is a matter close to my heart. I see it with concern that legislative bodies sometimes try to restrict this freedom. If, for example, the European Parliament adopts a reform of copyright law that could possibly lead to websites no longer being allowed to quote content from other websites without paying some kind of licence fee, then I do not think that is okay. I would like to fight actively against such developments. That is precisely what motivates me to stand as a candidate for the European Parliament.
Artificial intelligence is another subject for which I am passionate. This technology will certainly have an even greater impact on society than any other key technology before it. It is not for nothing that the term 'industry 4.0' is used in this context.
I myself see myself as an extremely modern politician who is by no means following the 'old school', but is instead committed to dialogue with the citizens.>>
