Recent advances in artificial intelligence driven by growing computing powers, rising amount of generated data and improvement of machine learning algorithms have led to major breakthroughs. Google’s Deepmind Alphago algorithm beat the second best player of the game of Go in 2016 after several months of training. A revised version of this algorithm reached superhuman capabilities in the game of Go, shogi and chess in 34 hours in December last year.
The speed of this technological growth is exponential and the proliferation of this technology in both vertical and horizontal. This raises alarming prospects about the potential malicious uses of this technology and the way to prevent them. A key aspect is to define regulations guidelines for the development of this technology and to find an appropriate inclusive framework of governance.
