I'm asking to all the hackers, webdevs, net admins out there.
It seems to me that if AIs can overcome humans at things like chess and go, and as well start designing its own programs, especially in the quantum computers in development, then they got a huge likelihood of literally replacing hackers. Finding vulnerabilities and developing malware seems like some of the basic things AIs could do, if they aren't into this already... So can human cybersecurity workers keep an edge over AIs, or are they soon to be overcome?
In pop fiction like Ghost in the Shell and Deus Ex you had AIs being unleashed over the internet with the power of taking over entire infrastructures of countries or even the world... what can prevent this from becoming real, soon?
I mean I have no job to begin with so it's not much to care about whether AI will replace jobs. What is more frightening is the potential capabilities of AI in the wrong hands.
