Is it Artificial Intelligence that is the real threat, or is it the hackers that can subversively hack the AI that is the true threat?
Assuming that we proceed with the already initiated and implanted AI, how can it be manipulated and/or subverted by hackers to create a super Evil intelligence that owns complete Power and control? What would it look like?
Stephen Hawking saw AI as the ultimate demise of civilization, humanity and Earth as we know it. In his view, AI would be the largest existential threat to survival. But is it really the AI, or is it the manipulation of AI that Hawking saw?
In a world in which everything can be hacked, it is inevitable to assume that AI would be victim as well. It means that the sweet virtual realities of vacation and sweetness of life can be hacked to subvert a vision of death, chaos and mayhem ultimately reducing the seer to such fear, they virtually implode. It could alter military plane tactics. Combat missions. Weather… The bounds are infinite.
AI is only so good as it’s security. And security is virtually – nonexistent.
Ai is a false reality. Hacking that false reality and imposing an alternate reality is an obvious threat, tactic, and ploy, that could effect not just individual responses, but military, business, market and weather – responses.
A hurricane can be hacked to be a sunny day.
A military invasion could be hacked to be – absolutely – nothing.
While the positive implications of AI may be vast, the reality is the flawed mind of humans, and our ability to turn something positive into – death.
Weapons have all been created within the mindset that they would have a positive outcome on the advancement of civilization – even the nuclear bomb. But in reality, all weapons have done is create a larger potential death toll. This is AI. Because it’s reach could be limitless.
Perhaps, those that are developing AI have all the best interests at heart. Perhaps they view the positives, the victories, the paradise lost. We have been at once searching for this Heaven on earth paradox from the beginning of time. But instead, we have created a world of greater and greater evil. Until we feel as though we blindly search for something good, something blessed, something that can give us the strength to continue the battle.
AI in and of itself if touted as something that can enhance learning, education, technology, visual spacing, and much more. The exponential Mockingbird is to feed and augment our abilities, and thus our quality of life. But hacking is a part of our life. At every level despite supposed military controls. Planes are being hacked. Helicopters. People. Weather. Identity. Everything is hacked and hackable.
The naïve believe that every new technology and science has only positive ramifications. The reality is we are a people corrupted, flawed, dangerous. We each have the ability to believe in the vil we commit.
WWII, the Germans committed unspeakable, heinous, vile atrocities. Perhaps 50-75% of the countries people engaged in these horrific acts. And yet, they would never have considered themselves capable of such actions just months prior. Throwing infants into brick walls. Wanting, desiring, relishing in the absolute pain of others. Both physical and mental. These were once ordinary people.
The bad guys, evil, thrives on this.
But imagine when the intelligence has no soul? There would be a constant ambivalence without a patriot, a dissident, a guardian worthy of doing good. Because the mind would not exist. Only action and reaction.
Hacking into a non-reactionary assemblage of wires and circuits, the bounds are no longer remotely defined.
Cain and Abel. It is born in the beginning.
