Given that the Brazilian Public Administration has incorporated artificial intelligence into different decision-making processes and for the assistance of decisions and public policies, there is a need to change the logic of organizations to move from a “digital bureaucracy” to a “bureaucracy intelligent”, which uses AI to facilitate, simplify and speed up interactions, tasks, document generation, etc., based on the ground in automation, as well as predictive activity. It is not just about adapting the government and the Public Administration to digitalization, the Internet or social networks. Here, a relevant problem arises, concerning the use of AI techniques in public elections. The question lies in the fact that there are elements that permeate this public election (values, ethical commitments, weighting, renunciation in favor of future generations, etc.) that seem insusceptible to algorithmic translation.
