“At our convocation we will take this law. Maybe not this session but next will try,” he promised, according to the quote RIA “Novosti” (we will remind that session of the state Duma last about six months, so the next would have to end around mid-summer 2018).

His statement Zhigarev made in the suburban Anosino: there is currently undergoing an extended meeting of the Council for legislative support of the development of the digital economy under the Chairman of the state Duma. About the necessity of the bill about the relationship of man and artificial intelligence was declared by the speaker of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin.

The politician drawn to this subject not for the first time: in February 2017 during the visit of Tatarstan Innopolis Volodin has promised to pay attention to the bill: Volodina was then introduced to a robot named “Gagarin”, which could answer a very limited number of questions, giving the services like Apple’s Siri.

Their intention to adopt the law Volodin repeated this summer.

Recall that the subject of artificial intelligence comes in the jokes devoted to the State Duma: for example, one of its former speaker, Boris Gryzlov, in the satirical essays of Maxim Kononenko was called “Android”.

Comparison of state Duma deputies with the androids has become so popular that the former head of the Committee of the lower house of Parliament on constitutional legislation and state construction Vladimir Pligin at the time even explained that he believes “Android” as a compliment, and the state needs just such an elite.
