You can use computed fields: because its is computed on-the-fly.

Define a Date field with compute. Please try this script:

    date = fields.Date(compute='_compute_date', string='Date')

    def _compute_date(self):

        for record in self:

            end = datetime.date.today()

            record.date = end

Hope this helps.
