The Rise of Artificial Intelligence

Fritz Venter, Founder and CEO of Computed Future participates in Risk Roundup with Jayshree Pandya to discuss “The Rise of Artificial Intelligence”.

As we, the humans aim for broader capabilities beyond our intelligence, the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) will undoubtedly create complex security challenges that will likely be beyond our capabilities to manage. While companies such as Google, Facebook, Amazon and Baidu have got into an AI arms race already, it is important to identify, understand and evaluate the strategic security risks, we the humans will face in the coming years due to AI.

The use of AI is not new. From cars to phones, to thermostats, emails and games like checkers and chess have been using basic “Artificial Narrow Intelligence” (ANI) system for a long time. More advanced ANI systems have also been widely used in sectors and industries like military, manufacturing, finance and so on.

The complex security challenges will hit us when the Artificial Narrow Intelligence (ANI) reaches Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) and then Artificial Super Intelligence (ASI). While, we the humans are yet to create Artificial General Intelligence, the mere thought of the possibility of Artificial Super Intelligence is causing an alarm across nations.

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve “Global Peace through Risk Management”. It is her strong belief that collaboration between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the NGIOA framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the digital global age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!
At Risk Group, Jayshree is defining the language of risks and currently developing thought leadership, researching needed practices, tools, framework and systems to manage the “strategic and shared risks” facing nations in a “Global Age”. She believes that cyberspace cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As cyber-security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched “cyber-security risk research center” that will merge the boundaries of “geo-security, cyber-security and space-security”.
Previously, she launched and managed “Risk Management Matters”, an online risk journal and one of the first risk publications, publishing “Industry Risk Reports of Biotechnology, Energy, Healthcare, Nanotechnology, and Natural Disasters” over the course of five years. Jayshree’s inaugural book, “The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk”, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Group
Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
