SYNTHETIC PUBLIC AGENTS

The contemporary brings the urgent need of the State transposed to the digital environment- a kind of Siri or Alexa judging administrative requests – is compatible with the Rule of Law? Is it so the indirect use of the same applications, such as digital assistants? Is the fact that there is a human signing, giving a certain varnish of humanity enough to remove any addiction to a certain action performed by an unregulated figure? The existing regulations for public officials are able to provide answers as to the problems inherent in the use of these tools? Is it necessary to set limits on the use of automation tools? The research focuses on the attempt to find a theoretical conception that better describes the use of relatively independent technological agents in the scope of Public Administration, proposing a semantic agreement to designate software that uses artificial intelligence as one of its constitutive technologies: the idea of a synthetic public agent.
