The Age of AI Hacking Is Closer Than You Think
How realistic is a future of AI hacking?
Its feasibility depends on the specific system being modeled and hacked. For an AI to even begin optimizing a solution, let alone develop a completely novel one, all of the rules of the environment must be formalized in a way the computer can understand. Goals—known in AI as objective functions—need to be established. The AI needs some sort of feedback on how well it is doing so that it can improve its performance.
Sometimes this is a trivial matter. For a game like...
