Dual-Use AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the recent emerging technologies that has spread around the world. AI has progressed far past coding of 1’s and 0’s.  Between 2011 and 2021 the funding for AI startups worldwide has increased exponentially from under $2 billion per year to over $35 billion per year.  During the 10 year period, the capabilities of AI technology has grown enormously ranging from manipulation of raw data to the generation of physical products. Some of the capabilities of AI include: facial recognition, biometric scanning, data organization, adaptive learning, data generation, generation of complex sentences, generation of writing samples, and production of complex art techniques. 


As AI continues to expand its capabilities, there needs to be structure to protect humans from the threat of potential misinformation generated by AI. AI has the ability to generate misinformation that can threaten national security, the economy, job security, and more. One of the neglected areas of AI misuse is scientific research. The scientific enterprise is one of the overlooked sectors in which AI poses a serious threat. Falsified data can lead to biased, incorrect, or inconsistent results and conclusions.
