'The world is under threat from artificial intelligence and needs to do more to keep people safe, experts have urged.
A new report compiled by 26 of the world’s leading experts paints a terrifying picture of the world in the next 10 years. Physical attacks as well as those on our digital worlds and political system could drastically undermine the safety of humanity, it warns, and people must work together now if they want to keep the world safe.
The use of artificial intelligence is likely to empower all kinds of people – including rogue states, criminals, and terrorists, the report warns. If people including policymakers and researchers don’t work together on that threat, it could permeate into some of the most fundamental parts of our lives.
That could range from attacks from drones to bots being used to manipulate our news agenda and elections, warns the report, titled ‘The Malicious Use of Artificial Intelligence: Forecasting, Prevention, and Mitigation’. Many of the attacks could come in forms that are hard even to imagine, such as speech synthesis tools and video creation technologies that could allow people to create entirely believable, but completely fake, videos.
To fight against that, the number of people being consulted on how to ward away the threat from AI should be vastly expanded, the 26 experts suggest. They include people who have ensured that other dual use technologies – those which can both improve and damage the world, such as computer security – are not used to cause such damage.'
