Why we need an AI-resilient society

by   Thomas Bartz-Beielstein, et al.

Artificial intelligence is considered as a key technology. It has a huge impact on our society. Besides many positive effects, there are also some negative effects or threats. Some of these threats to society are well-known, e.g., weapons or killer robots. But there are also threats that are ignored. These unknown-knowns or blind spots affect privacy, and facilitate manipulation and mistaken identities. We cannot trust data, audio, video, and identities any more. Democracies are able to cope with known threats, the known-knowns. Transforming unknown-knowns to known-knowns is one important cornerstone of resilient societies. An AI-resilient society is able to transform threats caused by new AI tecchnologies such as generative adversarial networks. Resilience can be seen as a positive adaptation of these threats. We propose three strategies how this adaptation can be achieved: awareness, agreements, and red flags. This article accompanies the TEDx talk "Why we urgently need an AI-resilient society", see https://youtu.be/f6c2ngp7rqY.
