AI's Will Start to Hack

 Very good pieces below.  Something we talked about early in the days of AI, and when hacking did start to adapt to its environments.    Started with simplistic worms, that aimed to change their locations to find the most vulnerable place to attack.    We included it our predicted vulnerability reports, and it proved true, though needed time to adapt.  And now, since AI can find patterns of ideal vulnerability to adapt to, it is inevitable.  And will know how to cover their tracks.  Below his intro, then much more at the link and report below

When AIs Start Hacking  in Bruce Schneier

If you don’t have enough to worry about already, consider a world where AIs are hackers.

Hacking is as old as humanity. We are creative problem solvers. We exploit loopholes, manipulate systems, and strive for more influence, power, and wealth. To date, hacking has exclusively been a human activity. Not for long.

As I lay out in a report I just published, artificial intelligence will eventually find vulnerabilities in all sorts of social, economic, and political systems, and then exploit them at unprecedented speed, scale, and scope. After hacking humanity, AI systems will then hack other AI systems, and humans will be little more than collateral damage.

Okay, maybe this is a bit of hyperbole, but it requires no far-future science fiction technology. I’m not postulating an AI “singularity,” where the AI-learning feedback loop becomes so fast that it outstrips human understanding. I’m not assuming intelligent androids. I’m not assuming evil intent. Most of these hacks don’t even require major research breakthroughs in AI. They’re already happening. As AI gets more sophisticated, though, we often won’t even know it’s happening.  .... '
