What? AI can be used for evil?


Oh the fun one can have mixing artificial intelligence with deadly biotoxins. From a Verge article:

It took less than six hours for drug-developing AI to invent 40,000 potentially lethal molecules. Researchers put AI normally used to search for helpful drugs into a kind of “bad actor” mode to show how easily it could be abused at a biological arms control conference.

I'm sure we can all agree this also shows how this could be abused at a chemical weapons lab as well. Yeesh! I guess it's fun for the chemo-techs to play around with this kind of thing, and of course world militaries have likely been doing this on daily.
