The Coming AI Hackers
Listen to the Audio on HBR.org
AI hackers are coming, and it’s not just our computer networks at risk – our laws and regulations are also vulnerable. Bruce Schneier, internationally renowned security technologist and fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society, joins Azeem Azhar to explore how humans have always exploited loopholes in rule-based systems, and how that will change as AIs become more powerful.
They also discuss:
- Why making AI systems easier to monitor and regulate also makes them less powerful.
- Why we need mechanisms for agile policy response when legislation and regulation get hacked.
- Why AI hackers might end up benefiting system designers and cyber-defenses in the long run.
