Perhaps, you might be unaware but there is however a sophisticated research division for future technologies allotted to america Government intelligence agencies and industrial intelligence complex. It’s called IARPA in fact it is an ingenious concept in line with the DARPA model; Dangerous – High Gain strategy to advanced research and development. That creates sense right, especially considering we live in a world fraught with cyber hackers, corporate espionage, and terrorists. What this means is our intelligence agencies should be on the ball, and they need to be right 100% of the time while the evil-doers only have to buy it right once you find.
Now then, consider when you will the massive level of data our company is collecting on individual citizens currently online. Not only that, but everyone has a brilliant phone, an e-mail address, and perhaps a few social media pages. Folks also make comments on articles they read from the media into little boxes and press the submit button. Because it is quite easy to figure out who someone is based on their ISP address, their social networking profile, their cellular phone number, and the way they write – it is rather simple to do threat risk assessment to determine if they could be a threat risk.
Today, the artificial intelligent computers which collect this all data have not been optimized or programmed everything well, and therefore they may be flagging far too many false positives. However every time a person gets away by using a crime against humanity, a terrorist act, a hacking event, a criminal act, or even spying the authorities may go back and check out their types of operation, their writings, and gain clues into the human psyche that goes in addition to such folks. And each and every time the artificial intelligent computers get better at guesstimating in a close tolerance of probability the particular individuals they are seeking – the higher they are going to work. If you are IARPA wouldn’t you look into this?
Okay so, because this has all but going on quite quite a long time it seems sensible these particular artificial intelligent computers are receiving rather good at the Lone Wolf assessment (Lone Wolf could be someone such as the Unabomber for instance). Think about the lone wolf as being the hardest type of terrorist to locate, someone that works alone, has very little communication with the outside world, detailed plans which can be never shared with anyone, and thus few clues to provide them, or few associates, Facebook friends, or collaborators to turn them in. Therefore it is tough to end up in their brains and find out what they’re thinking without contacting them within the auspice of some important reason other than the particular surveillance.
To put it differently it will take manpower, and a very good story to even get to a degree to talk to this kind of individual. However because everyone is connected now and everybody is able to be geo-tracked, and possesses an e-mail address, or even a Facebook page there are several strategies to speak to these folks. The only problem with that is manpower. Therefore it’s obvious that down the road artificial intelligent computers, true artificial intelligence as per Alan Turing’s famous AI test (the capacity of your computer to fool a human into thinking that it is actually conversing with another human) – will contact these folks and initiate up some form of conversation.
The easiest method to do this can be to the artificial intelligent computer to sift through each of the data, including all the writings that might have been posted in forums, in response to online media articles, and every one of the postings on blogs, and social networking pages. From that point the artificial intelligent computer can make use of the individual’s own words, and modify those sentences using similar words with similar meaning from a thesaurus, inside the database of the AI computer software – which AI computer will be able to speak with the individual on the one-on-one basis.
In doing so, the AI computer will probably be gathering information from that conversation in addition to anything that the patient types in an e-mail. Everything are able to be loaded right into a database and included in all the collected words already written, or spoken into a cell phone, given that the intelligence agencies have obtained the authority to listen in. Of course, all the public information is not going to need to have a permission slip or court subpoena. It can be quite probable that eventually these AI systems can correspond using the individual every so often, checking in on their own psychological displacement, or progress, further assessing should they have increased the possible likelihood of committing a violent act, or maybe if that individual will likely be downgraded to another level.
If the individual gets to the top level, and it seems that these are either willing or able to commit such an act, that’s when human intervention might take place, and only if they become a threat to society or our government within a strong probability, mathematically speaking. After a while better algorithms will likely be used and thru practice better techniques will probably be learned to guarantee there are not many false positives. Now then, I will hear the EFF – Electronic Freedom Foundation already to submit a lawsuit against the use of these AI computers in this regard.
Possibly the ethical question will likely be does the government and our intelligence agencies have the ability to snoop on citizens, pretend to get someone they are certainly not, collect details about each potential individual, and stick that in a file somewhere, or hidden in certain giant data center? The fact is that if someone posts information online in the public, that information is now in the public, and anyone may use it for any legitimate purpose.
Protecting the American people is within the arena of the government’s responsibility according to the United states Constitution and a legitimate purpose one could argue before the Supreme Court. Thus, they would have the ability to gather all of the public information about anyone which happens to be on the net. Not merely will they are doing this for American citizens, but additionally from potential threats of international terrorism, and folks outside our country. Surely, our intelligence services and agencies will probably be working together with other governments world wide sharing this data.
Who may be to state that other governments usually are not already collecting information about Americans? It could behoove them to get this done even though they didn’t find any Americans were a menace to their countries or nations, for that simple reason to offer us a greater portion of their products which have been imported to the us. Corporations collect your information all of the time because maybe you are a client, you may have joined their rewards program, or perhaps you have been recognized as someone that may potentially purchase something from their store in the future. They actually do have the ability to collect information they find online.
Let’s say someone that is upset with something going on on earth writes rather disparaging comments about some agency, company, industry, or individual around the Washington Post website after a post they just read – that information will be collected, and therefore the AI computer may contact that individual under false pretense, and attempt to set up a conversation. In the event that conversation leads the AI computer to think that this individual is problematic, psychotic, extremely angry, or willing to make a change into their own hands, then your threat assessment level will go up, and warning signs will likely be raised.
Remember, I found myself discussing the challenges of manpower inside the intelligence industry and intelligence agencies. This can be a real dilemma, for if we have way too many false positives and spend too much time and money about the wrong individuals, our company is liable to let other people slip through. However, in the event the artificial intelligent computer has become seccurity the purpose it could pass the Turing test without tipping away from the individual, it might in essence have conversations by e-mail with thousands of people within a afternoon.
Since this will be possible or maybe, already is, it will be a part of our future, our government, and other governments, and individuals uses these techniques, every one of them plus some other I have not discussed in this particular article. Okay so, I guess you will be wondering why I know this? No comment. Indeed, I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s technology briefing and revel in all of your afternoon, I know I will, and don’t forget to set more info about you online at the social media. Ha ha ha. Please consider all of this and think on it.
