Human “wrong-uns” who abuse Artificial Intelligence could cause more harm to the world than rogue robots, an expert has warned.
Kamales Lardi fears it could be “malicious” people who spell global destruction rather than the rise of computer-generated killer bots.
She wants much greater scrutiny of those building future technology to keep a lid on any bad eggs. The AI boffin said: “With any tech there’s always been good and bad – the dark net, for example.

“We lack the right values and leadership, particularly in tech companies, to ensure that tech is not
applied in a malicious way.”
While AI is already being used in our day-to-day lives – face recognition on phones and social media, for example – details about who should take responsibility for stopping its potential malicious use have still not been decided.
Kamales, from Lardi & Partner Consulting, Switzerland, added: “There has been a lot of talk around tech being harmful.
“But we’ve heard very little about the people who are developing the technology.”
Rick Panesar, Communications Consultant at Hard Numbers, agrees and says that humans could be the ultimate downfall.
He told the Daily Star: "Whilst I believe that human nature on the whole is good, power and greed have always been humanity's downfall, bringing out the worst in us as a species.

"Generative AI models use neural networks to identify the patterns and structures within existing data to generate new and original content.
"One of the breakthroughs with generative AI models is the ability to leverage different learning approaches, including unsupervised or semi-supervised learning for training.
"Generative AI itself does not pose a direct threat – but it's the human actions that guide the algorithm and data that it's trained on…and that's where the threat lies.
"Whilst nobody truly knows what’s coming next, one thing I can say with certainty is that it will be huge."
