Artificial intelligence; A phenomenon created by humans to give thought to machines and then the same thinking to be used to improve human life. Naturally, artificial intelligence or AI, like everything else in this world, has advantages and disadvantages. In this article, we want to tell you about the 5 main dangers of artificial intelligence.
How can artificial intelligence be dangerous?

This issue is becoming more and more complicated, and the problem is that there is no consensus and no comprehensive understanding of the consequences of this phenomenon. The dangers of artificial intelligence range from the destruction of thousands of jobs to the destruction of human beings themselves. There are two scenarios in this regard:
Artificial intelligence is programmed to do destructive work.
Artificial intelligence is programmed to do useful things, but while achieving this goal, it performs a destructive activity.
The complexity of artificial intelligence can exacerbate these risks. For example, suppose an AI is programmed to maximize the production of paper clips. Now, if this artificial intelligence is very smart, then maybe it will destroy the entire planet Earth and use the resources to achieve its goal. Of course, it is not just high-level AI that has potential dangers. Here are five key pointers in moving forward with AI.
1. Automation and destruction of jobs
Automation is a danger that is already plaguing society. These include automated factories, self-driving cars, and even automated restaurants without human intervention. Perhaps we will soon see taxi agencies whose cars are not only self-propelled but also owned by an artificial intelligence; Like Cyberpunk 2077.
Artificial intelligence does the job at a lower cost than humans, and also offers better accuracy and efficiency. For example, artificial intelligence performs better than human offspring in detecting forged documents and tumors. The problem is that employees who lose their current jobs will not be able to do the new jobs created in the field of artificial intelligence (due to the complexity and also the lack of relevant certificates).
With the advancement of AI, more jobs are disappearing from the realm of humans and entering the realm of machines and artificial intelligence, like the various sequences we saw at the beginning of Detroit: Become Human.
2. Security and privacy dangers of artificial intelligence
In 2020, the British government in a report stressed the need to use more artificial intelligence to defend in cyber areas that require a rapid response (faster than human response). The problem is that with the rise of cyber-threats posed by artificial intelligence, we need to use more artificial intelligence to prevent these threats unless we find another solution.
Another issue is that the AI of the defender himself may one day be infected. About 2.5 million terabytes of information are generated online daily. AI can now create user profiles that allow accurate targeting of advertisements.
Face recognition technology has also advanced greatly, and police in some areas are now reportedly wearing glasses that can label criminals. The main danger here is that such technologies will be misused.
3. Artificial intelligence malware
AI can use machine learning and trial-and-error techniques to hack into security systems and cryptography more easily. In the meantime, things like self-driving cars are at greater risk of such attacks. For example, malware can cause a car crash or block roads. Naturally, the only defensive tactic in this area is the use of anti-malware AI.
4. Automatic weapons
Automatic weapons (using artificial intelligence) already exist, and some experts have called on the United Nations to find a way to protect humans from such weapons. For example, a drone capable of face recognition can track a person. Or an AI firearm can hit its target with a very low error rate.
What happens if AI makes life-and-death decisions without human intervention? Remember for a moment the series of Terminator movies!
5. Deepick, fake news, and political security
Software that reconstructs facial expressions (the same as diphthongs) ) is so advanced that we can hardly distinguish their outputs from reality. The dangers of Deepfike are now more prevalent among celebrities and people in power, but it does not take long for this issue to affect the daily lives of ordinary people as well. However, using a Facebook profile picture, you can create a Deep video.
This is not the end of the story. AI can edit images, write text, create audio, and so design ads in great detail to suit the interests of different people. Artificial intelligence and many other phenomena that we see around us are due to the human desire for progress and “every day is better than yesterday.” In the meantime, the question that has arisen is how long one wants to continue this process. Perhaps by crossing a certain level, these developments will not only improve our lives, but also pave the way for the perpetual annihilation of the human race and, in the words of Ilan Mask, the emergence of an eternal dictatorship by artificial intelligence.
