The Dangers of Machine Intelligence: Machine Stupidity
Perhaps the biggest danger of an artificial intelligence is its own stupidity. After the 2016 elections Google╬Ú╬¸s answer to "who won the popular vote" was "Donald Trump", which was false at every stage of the vote counting process. The reason for that error is simple: a right-wing organization had easily found a way to become the top result on Google╬Ú╬¸s search engine when that question was asked. You can easily fool an artificial intelligence, and this will remain true for many, many decades. Any service replaced by an artificial intelligence is (and will be) easily vulnerable to ill-intentioned people.
