Malicious (ab)use of Artificial Intelligence
Paneldiskussion
29.8.2022 | 15:00 – 17:00
Alexander von Humboldt Institut für Internet und Gesellschaft

 

The challenges and opportunities of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are at the centre of numerous academic studies, political debates, regulatory efforts, and initiatives from civil society organisations. This technology impacts most sectors of society.

While the recent surge in AI development has been fuelled by the private sector and applications in customer-oriented applications, sectors such as defence might use similar capabilities in their operations. At the same time, AI systems have also been increasingly integrated into criminal and harmful activities, expanding existing vulnerabilities and introducing new threats. For instance, AI-based cyberattacks and the use of deepfakes. Even though the capabilities of AI-enhanced technology might not always lead to more sophisticated attacks, they certainly have the potential to expand the scale and reach.

The panel will discuss issues surrounding the malicious use and abuse of AI systems from an interdisciplinary perspective. The speakers will examine the following questions: What are the most pressing issues regarding the risks posed by AI and whom do they target? How can these risks be minimised? What are the opportunities and promising use cases of the technology?

From the discussions that emerge during the event, participants will be able to understand the societal implications of recent technological developments. During the Q&A, the audience can engage with such issues and discuss them from different perspectives and fields of knowledge.
