Weaponizing Artificial Intelligence: The Scary Prospect Of AI-Enabled Terrorism
There has been much speculation about the power and dangers of artificial intelligence (AI), but it’s been primarily focused on what AI will do to our jobs in the very near future. Now, there’s discussion among tech leaders, governments and journalists about how artificial intelligence is making lethal autonomous weapons systems possible and what could transpire if this technology falls into the hands of a rogue state or terrorist organization. Debates on the moral and legal implications of autonomous weapons have begun and there are no easy answers. Autonomous weapons already developed The United Nations recently discussed the use of autonomous weapons [...]
The 5 Technologies That Will Change The Future Of The Human Race
In my book, Tech Trends in Practice, I talk about a lot of technology trends that are already moving out of the R&D departments and into everyday life[...]
Is Artificial Intelligence Dangerous? 6 AI Risks Everyone Should Know About
Should we be scared of artificial intelligence (AI)? Some notable individuals such as legendary physicist Stephen Hawking and Tesla and SpaceX leader and innovator Elon Musk suggest AI could potentially be very dangerous; Musk at one point was comparing AI to the dangers of the dictator of North Korea. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates also believes there’s reason to be cautious, but that the good can outweigh the bad if managed properly. Since recent developments have made super-intelligent machines possible much sooner than initially thought, the time is now to determine what dangers artificial intelligence poses. What is applied and generalised [...]
Is Artificial Intelligence (AI) Dangerous And Should We Regulate It Now?
Now that artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer just a what-if scenario that gets tech gurus frenzied with the possibilities, but it’s in use and impacting our everyday lives, there is renewed discussion about how this exciting—yet powerful and potentially problematic—technology should be regulated. On one side of the issue are those that feel it’s premature to begin the discussion while at the other end of the spectrum there are those who feel as if the discussion is dreadfully behind. No matter where you stand on the issue, we can all agree that AI is here to stay so regardless [...]
A Short History of Machine Learning — Every Manager Should Read
It’s all well and good to ask if androids dream of electric sheep, but science fact has evolved to a point where it’s beginning to coincide with science fiction. No, we don’t have autonomous androids struggling with existential crises — yet — but we are getting ever closer to what people tend to call “artificial intelligence.” Machine Learning is a sub-set of artificial intelligence where computer algorithms are used to autonomously learn from data and information. In machine learning computers don’t have to be explicitly programmed but can change and improve their algorithms by themselves. Today, machine learning algorithms enable computers [...]
Is Artificial Intelligence (AI) A Threat To Humans?
Are artificial intelligence (AI) and superintelligent machines the best or worst thing that could ever happen to humankind? This has been a question in existence since the 1940s when computer scientist Alan Turing wondered and began to believe that there would be a time when machines could have an unlimited impact on humanity through a process that mimicked evolution. When Oxford University Professor Nick Bostrom’s New York Times best-seller, Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies was first published in 2014, it struck a nerve at the heart of this debate with its focus on all the things that could go wrong. However, [...]

The Most Amazing Examples Of Drones In Use Today: From Scary To Incredibly Helpful
Drones, aircraft that are remotely or autonomously piloted with no human onboard, are used in many ways from a hobbyist who flies a $25 drone around for fun on the weekends to a multimillion-dollar military drone that’s becoming a critical part of missions. Also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), drones aren’t by default dystopian. While there are scary uses of drones, there are many ways they can be incredibly helpful and fun. Scariest Use of Drones We got a peek into the dangers of drones when the president of Venezuela was the victim of what appeared to be an [...]
The 7 Most Dangerous Technology Trends Everyone Should Know About
As we enter new frontiers with the latest technology trends and enjoy the many positive impacts and benefits it can have on the way we work, play and live, we must always be mindful and prepare for possible negative impacts and potential misuse of the technology. Here are seven of the most dangerous technology trends: 1. Drone Swarms The British, Chinese, and United States armed forces are testing how interconnected, cooperative drones could be used in military operations. Inspired by a swarm of insects working together, drone swarms could revolutionise future conflicts, whether it be by overwhelming enemy sensors with [...]
