The growth of AI is somewhere a matter of concern for humans. Though the implementation of AI will completely transform the workplace there’s always a worry of what AI could do in the wrong hands.  

AI can be used maliciously in three main contexts:

Digital

Political

Physical

It’s obvious dangers revolve around drone warfare, data extraction, and hacking. But the advanced technology can also open the door for new threats on a much larger scale.

There are great minds from Stephen Hawking to Elon Musk and Bill Gates, who have warned us against the risk of AI. But sadly, they have invested their money where their mouth is. Now, we should not focus on our future with AI. Instead, real risk lies in the trust, the way humans trust smart machines and are completely reliant on them.  

Here are few AI risks that everyone should be aware of:

AI Machines are your soulmates, they know everything about you

Machines know everything about you. They can collect, analyze, and easily track information about you and can use them against you. Though AI is powerful but humans are more powerful and dangerous than AI. They can misuse any powerful technology. Unfortunately, as our AI capabilities expand we will also see it being used for dangerous or malicious purposes.

They can be hazardous if goals are not set

AI-powered machines are effective and efficient. But, if we don’t set our goals for AI machines it could be dangerous for us. AI machines with no armed goals are dangerous to mankind. For example- a command to a machine saying, “get me to the airport as quickly as possible” might have severe consequences. Without specifying that the rules of the road must be respected because we value human life, a machine could quite effectively accomplish its goal of getting you to the airport as quickly as possible and do literally what you asked, but leave a trail of accidents.  

Keep Your Every Single Detail

With help of AI tracking and analyzing individual’s information has become easy. Their every nuke detail is available online. In fact, this is the type that is going to power China’s social credit system that is expected to give every one of its 1.4 billion citizens a personal score based on how they behave-things such as do they smoke in a non-smoking zone, how much time they spend playing video games.
