How bad can AI be

Evil Eye: Home Decor made of Turkish Glass that protects you from Nazar which is believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when one is unaware.

Nobody knows how the internal process works in the AI neurons. This unknown part of the puzzle may give birth to the worst superpower of AI.

You will understand what I am saying when I tell you more about the article I mentioned above. Imagery used in radiology research, including chest, hand x-rays and mammograms can be used to predict the patient’s race.

The scientists who wrote this article are not sure how AI can do that but the prediction results’ accuracy is between %80-%99.

Looking at the medical images with the evil eye can produce more unexpected data. You might think that the algorithm looks at the body mass index or bone density to identify certain demographic groups that seem to act as clues. But that is not the case. Believe or not the evil eye does not look like a human and even does not think like us.

If you don’t know how your enemy thinks, you can’t take any action.

Please don’t consider me an anti-science person. AI is the most advanced technology in human history. But the side effects and the potential use cases by ill-intentioned persons can write another history. The history of human destruction.
