The 4 Most Dangerous Technology In 2020

As we enter the 21st century with the latest technology trends. we enjoy the many positive impacts and other hands we must prepare for negative impacts and issues of the technology. Here are the 4 most frightening technologies trends:

Drone swarms

The Indian, Chinese, and United States armed forces are testing how drones could be used in military operations. They Inspired by a swarm of insects working together, drone swarms could transform future conflicts, whether it be by overwhelming enemy sensors with their numbers or to effectively cover a large area for search-and-rescue missions.

While this technology is still in the experimentation stage, the reality of a technology that is smart enough to coordinate its own behavior is moving closer to reality.

Aside from the positive benefits of drone swarms to minimize wounded, at least for the guilt, and more efficiently achieve a search-and-rescue objective, the thought of machines equipped with weapons to kill being able to “think” for themselves is fodder for nightmares.

Despite the negative possibilities, there seems to be little doubt that drone military technology will eventually be deployed in future conflicts

Facial Recognition

There are some strange useful applications for facial recognition, but it can just as easily be used for terrible purposes. China stands accused of using facial recognition technology for surveillance and racial profiling. But they have also monitored and controlled other religious people who live in the country.

Russia’s cameras scan the streets for “people of interest,” and there are reports that Israel tracks Palestinians inside the West Bank.

In addition to tracking people without their knowledge, facial recognition is plagued with bias. When an algorithm is trained on a dataset that isn’t diverse, it is less accurate and will misidentify people more. 

AI cloning

With the help of artificial intelligence (AI), AI creates a clone of someone’s voice is just a bit of audio. AI can take easily several photos or video of a person and then create a new cloned video that appears to be as original.

It’s become quite easy for AI to create an artificial YOU and the results are so perfect our brains have trouble differentiating between what is real and what is cloned.

However, the technology has advanced to the point that it doesn’t require as much raw data to create a convincing fake video, plus there are a lot more images and videos of ordinary people from the internet and social media channels to use.

Blackmailing and Hacking

When high-powered technology falls into the wrong hands, it can be very effective to achieve criminal, wrong, and unkind activities. Ransomware, where malware is used to prevent access to a computer system until a ransom is paid, is on the rise according to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).

Artificial intelligence can help automate tasks to get them done more efficiently. When those tasks, such as are to send out fake emails to trick people into giving up their private information, the negative impact could be extraordinary.

Once the software is built, there is a little-to-no cost to keep repeating the task over again. AI can fastly and efficiently blackmail people or hack into systems. Although AI is playing a significant role to combat malware and other threats, it’s also being used by cybercriminals to perpetrate the crimes
