Crime in The Land of Artificial Intelligence Technology

Imagine you receive a call from your ageing mother asking for help because she is unable to remember her banking password. Except that it is not your mother. But the voice is eeringly similar to hers and there is no telling the difference on a phone call. It is actually a computer-synthesized voice, an arm of artificial intelligence technology that makes it possible for someone to impersonate someone else on telephone. Such a situation may still be science fiction but it is an acute insight into the criminal potential of such technology.


The advancing technology is making the possibility of such a thing happening a reality. For example, DeepMind, a company has designed a software program that “mimics any human voice and which sounds more natural than the best existing text-to-speech systems, reducing the gap with human performance by over 50 percent.”Just recently, computer security industry has started talking about improving the state security through pattern recognition and machine learning techniques.


But there is the other side to it. It may also increase the vulnerabilities of the online world. This is visible in growing sophistication and complexity of the techniques of cyber crime and cyber criminals and the evolution in complexity of attack tools and malicious programs. The generation would simply add on to improve the existing quality of speech understanding, machine vision, speech synthesis etc.


Some researchers in computer security believe that computer criminals have been researching and experimenting with the use of Artificial intelligence technology since a decade.


Artificial intelligence technology is the future of crime!
