I see an ideal electoral counting system as one using both AI and human counters
- At each human counters position would be a minimal camera ( containing no or minimal software ) connected by a wire to a software-box maybe using only ROM memory for the software ( obviously to avoid illicit changing of the software ), the camera would be looking straight down at the desk
- The camera would record one image for each ballot, each image would show both the ballot and the paper? on which the human adds that ballot vote.
- Obviously, the software would determine / read the vote on the ballet, and also determine / read the paper? on which the human adds that ballot vote, to see if it agrees with what the human has determined / read.
- The software-box would also give an audio or visual alert to the human counter if it detects that they have made an incorrect reading of the ballot paper
- IT WOULD BE A COMPLETE AUDIT SYSTEM - This would be the most perfect system for real-time-audit and stored-audit
- Also, a mirror could be placed at angle, on the desk, so that the image of the human-counter could also appear on the stored images of the ballots.
- Also, perhaps, more than one set of software could be installed in the software-box, and they could both function of the same camera-feed, and a main-checking-program checking if both sets of software agree with each other
- Also, ideally the camera be a type that contains no or minimal software, if any minimal sofware is required inside the camera, it could be solely on ROM memory
