AI promises to show progressive signs in combating situations beyond human control, but is that all the thing worth watching? Presumably not! Bruce Schneier knows about the troubling situation of the world today, but the security researcher at the Harvard Kennedy School might have presented us with a bewildering predicament; AI Hackers.
“When AIs are able to discover vulnerabilities in computer code, it will be a boon to Hackers everywhere,” said Schneier. His eye-opening revelation at the all-virtual RSAC 2021 summit examined the pro, cons, and repercussions posed by artificial intelligence in being able to hack all kinds of encrypted systems. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic might have forced the RSAC participants to go easy with the conversation but on the contrary, Bruce couldn’t have more shrewd.
AI handling of Hackers will be at such a monumental hype; that it will almost make it impossible for humans to tackle such an unexpected surge in vulnerabilities. Initially, the Hackers prognosis could work in favor of Hackers, claims Schneier. Artificial intelligence’s prowess in detecting vulnerabilities and disintegration in computer codes will have positive progress to the Hackers world.
Inputs come in colossal numbers but humans don’t find it conclusive to overload their work in understanding how the solutions are fabricated. Both the techniques are trending across the markets with the name black boxes. AI’s decision-making needs to be the virtue of human understanding otherwise it could lead to unintended consequences like recommendation engines that push racism or extremism content because that’s what human beliefs are surrounded with.
