Combating the Rising Threat of Malicious AI Uses (IM)


A group of academics and researchers from leading universities and thinktanks – including Oxford, Yale, Cambridge and Open AI – recently published a chilling report titled, The Malicious Use of Artificial Intelligence: Forecasting, Prevention, and Mitigation.

The report raised alarm bells about the rising possibilities that rogue states, criminals, terrorists and other malefactors could soon exploit AI capabilities to cause wide spread harm. These risks are weighty and disturbing, albeit not surprising. Several politicians and humanitarians have repeatedly advocated for the need to regulate AI, with some calling it humanity’s most plausible existential threat.
