U.S. Intelligence Sees AI & Quantum Computing as Possible National Security Threats

(TechCrunch) Several key agencies in the U.S. intelligence community see technologies like encryption, autonomous and unmanned systems, AI and quantum computing rank at the top of their “worry list” of long-term threats that could be used to cause harm, rather than advance society.
For example, the government says that, “adversaries could gain increased access to AI through affordable designs used in the commercial industry, and could apply AI to areas such as weapons and technology,” and that “quantum communications could enable adversaries to develop secure communications that U.S. personnel would not be able to intercept or decrypt.”
“The challenge for the United States and its allies will be to develop responses faster than adversaries through a better understanding of the strategic environment,” the government said.
