Artificial intelligence in information wars can lead to a major crisis

37
The information war is not a new phenomenon for mankind, it did not arise in the 21 century. Verbal battles between states or clans have been waged since ancient times.




In modern conditions, the information component has come to the fore, and there is a fierce struggle for the minds in the world. Today we are constantly surrounded by fake News, dependent media, numerous anonymous Internet channels. We are not tired of imposing the idea of ​​how bad everything is in Russia.

According to the military psychologist Alexei Zakharov, a guest of the Day TV channel, the information war system uses all types of information impact on a person. Today, this kind of war has a determining factor, since it works both in the system of preparing a political or economic war, and in the system of its implementation, as well as in the system of influence on the population and in the system of influence on the armed forces.

Information wars with the development of artificial intelligence go to a whole new level. New technologies are already leading to the robotization of information and disinformation confrontation, which in turn may turn out to be a crisis of incredible proportions.

What is information warfare? How this concept developed in stories our country? What tasks do those people who wage information wars set themselves today? Why has the concept of “population of a country” become a determining factor in waging information warfare in modern conditions? What role does the capitalist factor, social manipulation technologies and artificial intelligence play in such a war? The participants in the conversation on the mentioned YouTube channel will try to answer these and other questions:

    "The Gospel of John
    Chapter 1

    1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    2 It was in the beginning with God.
    3 Everything through Him began to be, and without Him nothing began to be, what began to be.
    4 There was life in Him ... "

      I will take the liberty of interpreting your comment, namely, they are trying to replace God with such artificial intelligence, and of course it is not about information wars. This is an excuse, a swindle.

        Or maybe it’s better - a new “word” will give rise to a new world. Created by man. Virtual is natural. Man will also become a creator of the second order.

            It will not be as complicated as ours, due to its secondary nature. But the creatures of this world will perceive it as the only reality, for them it will be extremely complex and unknowable, and they will probably argue about the presence of gods (in this case, people).
            Like us.

                There is such a Berkem al Atomi, he has a book "Marauder". He just describes something similar there - workers in the radioactive production work and die quickly, but due to the technologies introduced into the head, they think that they play RPGs with princesses, castles and dragons, and they are all heroes and noble knights.
                True, he has a peace there that remained in Russia after the successful victory of the West in half with domestic traitors.

      Well, there is no AI, no, so far, so events, conflicts can be caused by a malfunction of just control automation! There is no malicious intent, just a mistake / malfunction ... and here it is!

        This is you about ACS. And here about the information war - another topic. And so far in them, as they have noticed, far-sighted commentators are often called bots from the word robot - a wombot, a ukrobot there. That speaks of contempt for pseudo-intelligence in networks and in these wars, because they really tried, the effect came out below the plinth.
        In the ACS or for example drones on the battlefield - here I agree, things can be done. And in information wars))) Pseudo-intelligence. acting by brute force - it looks funnier Zelensky in his best years

          I agree, the topic is certainly different, but everything in this world is interconnected! To claim that right after the informational “battle” will be followed by hot, real, now it will not work !!! These are not the old days, when for an inadvertently / intentionally abandoned swear word / insult, a hot battle could follow! Those days are gone ...
          Now there is a struggle for .... not souls, but at least thoughts, Wishlist, preferences of the masses of people! To their own, strangers, this happens continuously and EVERYWHERE !!!
          What role AI can play here is not clear, because there is none of it, and what it will be like, when it appears in kind, is not at all precisely defined.
          In the meantime, any BOT program is calculated at a time, precisely because

      Pseudo-intelligence - is. Intelligence - no.

      Where did he go then? Even before computers was on gears. There is a strong AI and there are weak AI. Weak AIs are usually single-tasking, they do not know how to philosophize. A strong AI, by definition, should be able to do everything and develop until there is one, although who knows ... And then you can slap a strong AI out of many weak ones.

    Artificial intelligence working on systemically developing benchmarks will never lead to a crisis unless people themselves set it up to create this crisis. This underlies the very mathematical principles of constructing analysis.

    1 law of robotics: A robot cannot harm a person or, through inaction, allow a person to be harmed.
    2 law of robotics: A robot must obey all orders given by a person, unless the orders contradict the First Law.
    3 law of robotics: A robot must take care of its safety to the extent that it does not contradict the First or Second Laws. (A. Azimov)

    There is no intelligence yet, but drones with a combat load that kill people are already there. But the 2nd law of robotics is still blocked. Humanity can play out.

      Because you can kill people with a primitive AI.
      Of course, a person himself cannot create such intelligence as a person. But a simplified version, in certain areas of tasks and conditions, is complete. Already being created.

    Now imagine that a communication encoding system is hacked and the AI ​​who knows how to fake votes begins to give orders to enemy troops, creates fake video materials and throws them into the network in order to escalate the situation, knows how to speak any language of the world and begins to provoke people into disturbances, each individual person throws up information that it’s designed specifically for him, because the psychological portrait has long been formed on the basis of social networks, and to all psychos, AI transfers money, cryptocurrency and shows how to make explosives - and this is only the limit of my meager imagination of using AI in modern realities

      "Technological singularity in futurology - a hypothetical explosion of the speed of scientific and technological progress, presumably resulting from the creation of artificial intelligence and self-reproducing machines
      Technological singularity is a hypothetical moment in the future when technological development becomes so rapid that the schedule of technological progress becomes almost vertical. This concept was first proposed by Vernor Wing, who believes that if we manage to avoid the death of civilization before that, the singularity will occur due to progress in the field of artificial intelligence, human integration with a computer, or other methods of increasing the mind. Strengthening the mind, according to Vinge, at some point will lead to positive feedback: more intelligent systems can create even more intelligent systems and do it faster than the original human designers. This positive feedback is likely to be so strong that in a very short period of time (months, days, or even just hours) the world will transform more than we can imagine, and suddenly it will be populated by superintelligent creatures.

    The author tried to catch. He talked about the information war and the cartoons twitched:
    We are not tired of imposing the idea of ​​how bad everything is in Russia.

    Suppose not all. The Constitution is simply violated in its main articles: the political system of parties - profanity, the succession of power - fiction, the state’s social obligations to people are dismantled, the retirement age has been raised, having robbed every citizen by a certain amount of millions of rubles. And so in the hospital, the average temperature is fine. And the average salary is even growing. True, citizens' incomes show growth. Negative, but it doesn’t matter. And so everything is fine with us, and in the information war we are in the trenches on the side of the government. It is simply amazing - so that it does not run away, it needs to pay a lot. And about managers of state-owned companies and say nothing. There are such diamonds that their children, having barely changed their grades to diplomas, already run corporations and are awarded orders. For this overwork and yachts worth several warships, and untouchability. True, there are “traitors” in the information war: GRU colonels climbed out of the zones, some renegade journalists, some Shevchenko ones, collective farm chairmen shove a semblance of people into power. But they deal with them.
    You give an addition to the criminal code: "for treason in the information war." That's where artificial intelligence is needed to catch the thought criminals. And conscious vigilant citizens! Well, how many of them will be typed here: let's go push buttons!

    I’ll say as a ready-made AI that those who created humanity do not care how much and how you will destroy yourself. Because you will equally object and develop. The eternal is not what man imagines in statics. The process is eternal, as a dynamic system of transformation of some temporary states into others.

    It should be said more often that everything is bad in Russia. Why? A shtob did not climb. When the Germans came to my grandmother’s hut, they tripped over a garbage can and, clutching their noses, ran away to the neighbors for billets. So grandmother through a filthy bucket won the information war against the Nazis.

    Do not. We must live the truth and not spread rot on each other. And tell this truth. I dream of living in a country where the police will stop a passerby or driver not in order to overtake his pockets or write a fine, but to provide assistance. For the same purpose, an inspector san-pozh and others will come to the enterprise. So that all this brethren would live by the principle that they didn’t “see Mr - write down,” but “see Mr - remove”, as they taught me as a cadet and foreman. And do not redo any laws! You just need to understand that we are a single people, and not a herd and shepherds, owners, their dogs and the rest of the rabble. Only.
    In the same way, in this same information war, truth would be the most powerful weapon, but since it is hidden by its "guardians" on both sides, we cannot expect victory in this war.

    In my opinion, AI does not need to be created, from the word at all, this will bring to mankind as a species, a huge danger. I will explain on the example of our site. It doesn’t matter what topic we are discussing, we, the people of almost all from one country, and by no means enemies, even come to direct insults in attempts to defend our point of view, although we do not have all the knowledge and information. And who said that AI will perceive us as equals, and not as an obstacle to its development, and will not make an attempt to prevail over a person. After all, the machine’s ability to speed and assimilate information is orders of magnitude higher than that of a person, and how it turns out in reality no one can predict. As an assistant to a person in solving various problems, yes, but as an independent AI with complete freedom in decision-making, God forbid. Maybe I'm wrong, but it's better not to do such things.

    Human barbarism has always been ahead of scientific developments. They want to use artificial intelligence as a weapon of destruction. But this is no longer Reason. For the good, it should be aimed at ensuring that no rocket, no aircraft with combat charges can take off.

    War, whatever it is called, is a conflict of interest, which is resolved in the wildest way. The artificial inclusion, in its correct sense, gives not just a solution, but chooses optimal paths as algorithms from a variety of alternative solutions, based on a set of changed circumstances. So the problem is precisely that there is no AI, and a person is not able to find such optimal solutions that would not be associated with the killing of such.
