By Aaron Smith and Janna Anderson Key Findings The vast majority of respondents to the Future of the Internet canvassing anticipate that robotics and artificial intelligence will permeate wide segments of daily life bywith huge implications for a range of industries such as health care, transport and logistics, customer service, and home maintenance. But even as they are largely consistent in their predictions for the evolution of technology itself, they are deeply divided on how advances in AI and robotics will impact the economic and employment picture over the next decade.
National Security-Related Applications of Artificial Intelligence Introduction There are a number of direct applications of AI relevant for national security purposes, both in the United States and elsewhere.
Take X and add AI. Included below are some examples in cybersecurity, information security, economic and financial tools of statecraft, defense, intelligence, homeland security, diplomacy, and development.
This is not intended as a comprehensive list of all possible uses of AI in these fields. Rather, these are merely intended as illustrative examples to help those in the national security community begin to think through some uses of this evolving technology.
The next section covers how broader AI-driven economic and societal changes could affect international security. Cybersecurity The cyber domain represents a prominent potential usage arena for AI, something senior leaders have expressed in recent years.
Each system was capable of automatically discovering and exploiting cyber vulnerabilities in its opponents while patching its own vulnerabilities and defending itself from external cyberattacks.
The systems in the first Cyber Grand Challenge used rule-based programming and did not make significant use of machine learning. Were a similar competition to be held today, machine learning would likely play a much larger role. Below are several illustrative applications of machine learning in the cybersecurity domain that could be especially impactful for the international security environment.
Increased Automation and Reduced Labor Requirements Cyber surveillance has tended to be less labor-intensive than the traditional human surveillance methods that it has augmented or replaced.
The increased use of machine learning could accelerate this trend, potentially putting sophisticated cyber capabilities that would normally require large corporation or nation-state level resources within the reach of smaller organizations or even individuals.
Narrow AI will increase the capabilities available to such actors, lowering the bar for attacks by individuals and non-state groups and increasing the scale of potential attacks for all actors. The machine learning approach allows the system to learn from prior experience in order to predict which locations in files are most likely to be susceptible to different types of fuzzing mutations, and hence malicious inputs.
This approach will be useful in both cyber defense detecting and protecting and cyber offense detecting and exploiting. Automated Red-teaming and Software Verification and Validation While there is understandable attention given to new vulnerability discovery, many cyber attacks exploit older, well-known vulnerabilities that system designers have simply failed to secure.
SQL-injection, for example, is a decades-old attack technique to which many new software systems still fall prey. AI technology could be used to develop new verification and validation systems that can automatically test software for known cyber vulnerabilities before the new software is operationally deployed.
Email phishing to trick users into revealing their passwords is a well-known example. The most effective phishing attacks are human-customized to target the specific victim aka spear-phishing attacks — for instance, by impersonating their coworkers, family members, or specific online services that they use.
AI technology offers the potential to automate this target customization, matching targeting data to the phishing message and thereby increasing the effectiveness of social engineering attacks. Similar to the role of AI in cyber attacks, AI provides mechanisms to narrowly tailor propaganda to a targeted audience, as well as increase its dissemination at scale — heightening its efficacy and reach.
Alternatively, natural language understanding and other forms of machine learning can train computer models to detect and filter propaganda content and its amplifiers.BOOK III. BEFORE speaking of the different forms of government, let us try to fix the exact sense of the word, which has not yet been very clearly explained..

Artificial intelligence (AI), sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans and other animals.
In computer science AI research is defined as the study of "intelligent agents": any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its .
