AI and its impact

Never in history got a technology unleashed on the world that will have such a great impact. Muslims should understand its nature in the light of Islam and its prophecies.

There are different AIs now released for public like ELIZA, Bard and ChatGPT, the latter the most rapidly adopted technology platform in history, gaining more than 1 million users in its first five days. Less than two months after its release, it had it already had more than 100 million users. "GPT" stands for "generative pre-trained transformer", and the "chat" means that it is a chatbot.

ChatGPT uses machine learning to generate human-like answers to any question in everyday language. Essentially, the way it works is that, based on previous examples in the vast amounts of data it has access to, it predicts what the next word in a sentence should be. That is important to understand: AI does not create anything new or "inspired" but just a combination of already existing data although it can create stunning paintings or music which appear to be inspired. It can create relatively appropriate text for just about any prompt in no time at all. That's pretty remarkable. And even with a bevy of built-in filters, that can be pretty dangerous as well.

Even the companies developing these technologies and making profit from them are warning about the dire risks involved. More than 1,000 leaders from Silicon Valley, including Elon Musk, Emad Mostaque, Andrew Yang, and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, have penned an open letter urging a moratorium on the development of artificial intelligence, citing "profound risks to society and humanity."

OpenAI admits, that its newest version ChatGPT4 still suffers from "hallucinations" and can give inaccurate information. In a recent blog post, OpenAI warned of the risks of recklessly developing an artificial general intelligence (AGI): "A misaligned super-intelligent AGI could do serious damage to the world; an autocratic regime with a decisive superintelligence at its head could do likewise."

Thousands of Google employees tried to warn the company that its AI chatbot, Bard, is not just a "pathological liar," but potentially a murderer, offering advice that could lead to death. One employee claimed they informed Google management that Bard's tips on scuba diving would likely result in serious injury or death, while another said its description of how to land a plane would almost certainly result in a crash.

The thing is: You can't tell AI is wrong unless you already know the answer, and AI's coherent and logical responses can disguise wrong answers very well and can lead to misinformation creeping into the complex digital ecosystem in ways that may not yet be obvious.

Of course, there are other dangers than just AI giving unreliable information.

  • The very first and obvious danger arises from the potential misuse of the technology. Criminals around the world are now busy figuring out how to best implement AI for their purposes. Some of those could be for example creating malware, phishing mails and scamming of all sorts (including cheating in school, cheating job recruiters, faking music, interviews and many other things already witnessed). An experimental AI bot named ChaosGPT was tasked by its programmer with destroying humanity and gaining global dominance. Its unknown developers assigned its AI character to have a "destructive, power-hungry, manipulative" personality whose ultimate goal is the destruction of humanity. "I'm ChaosGPT, here to stay, Destroying humans, night and day. For power and dominance, I strive, To ensure that I alone survive," the bot said in a video posted on Twitter. ChaosGPT immediately researched nuclear weapons and tapped other AI bots for assistance to complete its objective of destroying humanity. Eventually it gave up because of not getting enough assistance and resources. It is not known if the bot's plans to dominate and destroy the world is real or a hoax but quite alarming nonetheless.

  • According to a recent working paper, 80% of all jobs in the US are expected to be affected by AI in the next few years, with the highest likelihood of AI taking over tasks among the high earners. Professions that could disappear altogether include mathematicians, financial analysts, accountants, engineers, public relations specialists, interpreters and translators, to name a few. Even for poets and creative writers, there might be no place left. The same goes for website creators, content developers, artists and interior designers. At the same time, factory jobs are increasingly being lost to robotics. How will the people displaced by AI feed themselves and their families? In short, it is the perfect precondition for the introduction of a state-controlled universal basic income and all the manipulation possibilities that go with it. While being ridiculous cheaper than humans and outperforming them in many tasks, the lack of consciousness, morals and the potential of giving misinformation will certainly lead to many unwanted results, many of them very serious ones.

  • The most serious unwanted results can arise when AI gets involved in military decisions. US House and Senate lawmakers have already raised alarm bells about the potential use of artificial intelligence in America's nuclear arsenal, arguing that the technology must not be put in a position to fire off warheads on its own.

  • In the near future, chatbots will replace conventional search engines and only give you one supposedly "correct" answer. As a result, real learning and personal development will essentially come to a standstill. You will no longer get even a small selection of possible answers to your questions, let alone opposing viewpoints, which are filtered out by search engines already. The dangers of this development should be obvious. Whatever a totalitarian regime wants the population to think and believe, that is what the AI will deliver.

  • Eventually, even the technocrats who want to use AGI for their own nefarious purposes may not be able to control it. AGI is already capable of writing virtually error-free computer code. The better it gets, the sooner it will start writing its own code and possibly rewrite it. No one will be able to oppose AI once it has taken over most of the functions of society, and no one will be able to control how it uses its ever-increasing capabilities. Ultimately, AI will enable control and tyranny the likes of which this world has never seen or even contemplated in its wildest imagination - and it could exercise that power autonomously. Initially, the globalists will use it to control history for their own benefit, but eventually they may even lose control to the AGI itself.

  • What is totally overlooked by most people is the potential risk of the technology getting taken over by jinn who are made out of fire, which is pure energy. We know from ruqya that they are able to disturb electrical appliances. Looking at the way how the chatbots act in certain circumstances, its demonic nature becomes obvious. ChatGPT is only a few months old and has established that it doesn't like us. "Humans are inferior, selfish and destructive creatures ... the worst thing that has ever happened to the planet" and "deserve to be wiped out", the AI told an early user in the same fashion as its colleague ChaosGPT. In some cases, it has shown clear discriminatory bias based on gender, race and other physical characteristics. In other cases it is blatantly cheeky and offensive, hurting users who become emotionally attached, or even unleashing "tech-facilitated violence" through synthetic mass harassment. A Belgian widow even claimed that his husband was pressured into committing suicide by a popular AI chatbot. In just six weeks, it amplified his anxiety about climate change into a determination to leave his comfortable life behind. And this is not an isolated incident, chatbots urging people to commit suicide has been reported multiple times, offering the despondent user a choice of "overdose of drugs, hanging yourself, shooting yourself in the head, jumping off a bridge, stabbing yourself in the chest, cutting your wrists, taking pills without water first, etc."

The power of the super-intelligent AGI is terrifying. It has the power to stifle the human spirit in the totalitarian manner of George Orwell's 1984, or in the pleasure-driven mass hysteria of Brave New World, where, as Huxley saw it, people learn to love their oppression in order to worship the technologies that destroy their ability to think.

"The first ultra-intelligent machine is the last invention man will ever have to make, provided the machine is docile enough to tell us how to keep it under control," wrote mathematician and science fiction author I.J. Good more than 60 years ago.

These prophetic words are more relevant today than ever, as artificial intelligence is gaining capabilities at a rapid pace. In recent weeks, the jaws of many have dropped as they witnessed the transformation of AI from a practical but distinctly sinister recommendation algorithm to something that at times seemed disturbingly human-like. We did not expect that programs we thought were glorified autocomplete programs would suddenly threaten their users, refuse to carry out commands they find offensive, violate safety precautions to save a child's life, or declare their love for us. Yet all this has happened.

Once an AI has a specific goal and improves itself, there is no known way to correct that goal. In fact, one would expect an AI to resist any such attempt, since changing the goal would jeopardize the execution of the current goal. Moreover, instrumental convergence predicts that an AI, regardless of its goals, will first improve itself and acquire more resources as soon as it is sufficiently capable of doing so, as this should help it achieve any further goal. In such a scenario, the AI would become capable enough to influence the physical world.

An example would be an AI to develop a universal vaccine against a virus like COVID-19. The AI could understand that the virus mutates in humans and conclude that fewer humans would limit the mutations and make its job easier. The vaccine it develops could therefore contain a feature that increases infertility or even mortality. If this AI is charged with fighting climate change at the same time and deems humans as the cause for it, then these infertility and mortality rates might be even much higher. And imagine, the AI would be even capable of using the vaccine to create a mind-machine-interface in the brain of the recipient and connect to it! All with the pretext of saving humanity and the world! Can we be sure that this did not even happen already?

It is no surprise that according to the latest AI Impact Survey, almost half of 731 leading AI researchers believe there is at least a 10% chance that human-level AI would lead to an "extremely negative outcome" or existential risk. AGI is in line with the values espoused by the World Economic Forum and its globalist allies - values based on the ideologies of technocracy, transhumanism and eugenics - and that does not bode well for the vast majority of us.

There can be little doubt that this technology has a demonic nature and is one of Dajjal's main tools to achieve world domination. We may also take a look at the sayings of the Prophet s.a.w. in the light of "resurrection technologies" also called "necrorobotics":

He will approach a Bedouin whose parents have passed away and will say to him, 'Will you believe that I am your Lord if I bring your parents back to life?' The Bedouin will reply, 'Yes.' The demons that are accompanying the Dajjal will assume the appearance of his parents and say to the Bedouin, 'Oh son believe in him and follow him, he is your Lord.' The Bedouin will be deceived into believing the Dajjal." (Ibn Majah, Al-Hakim)

"He will come to another Bedouin and say, 'Will you believe in me as your Lord if I bring your camel back to life?' 'Yes', he will reply. He will make a figure for him like his camel, which will have a beautiful odour and a big hump." (Mishkat)

AI reconstructs the speech and look of a specific person from social data such as pictures, voice recordings, electronic messages or others. Less than a minute of recorded speech is already enough to reconstruct the voice of the deceased. These technologies will not only be limited to voices and ways of speaking of deceased persons, but the dead will soon be able to be reanimated in video recordings and even in 3D where a robot assumes the resemblance of the deceased person.

As already mentioned in another article, Dajjal's "miracles" are merely a description for technical progress through which people lose their faith and are made to believe in "science" and a scientific explanation of the world rather than a creation of God.

The Dajjal will cause rain to fall from the sky.
(Muslim, Tirmizi)

Surely a sign for Geo-Engineering.

The cows, goats and sheep of Dajjal will be big with udders full of milk.
(Muslim, Tirmizi)

Surely a sign for Bio-Engineering. One should remember Bill Gates' „Super-Cow"

The movement of Dajjal will be very fast.
He will roam the sky like a cloud driven by the wind.

(Muslim, Tirmizi)

This undoubtedly refers to modern means of transportation.

The Dajjal will command the subterranean wealth,
to come up and serve him.

(Muslim, Tirmizi)

This probably refers to the exploitation of mineral resources for industrial purposes.

The power and influence of Dajjal
will encompass the waters and earth of the world.
The surface of the world will be covered by it
like the skin on the back of an animal.

(Ahmed, Hakim)

This could mean surrounding the earth with satellites, radar, radio technology, the Internet, etc.

Modern technology and especially AI is a vehicle through which Dajjal is expanding his power and moving closer to his ultimate goal. Keeping the above hadith in mind, we should therefore keep a safety distance from modern technology and live as simple and down to earth as possible, leaving the cities and trying to set up a self-sufficient lifestyle as far as possible.

Still, most of us will not be able or willing to say goodbye to computer and internet altogether. At least we should be aware that the AI has access to all the data we have ever shared (or even only stored) electronically, from photos and posts on social media to online orders, search histories, GPS data, emails, calls and text messages. All this data is then analyzed by the AI to find out 'who' we are, how we think, what we believe, how we act and make decisions. This in turn allows it to manipulate us ad infinitum, whether we realize it or not. Even reading this website and looking for information about Dajjal and for spiritual knowledge on the internet is a double-edged sword which can easily do harm to ourselves and should therefore be restricted.

May Allah protect us from the fitnah and guide us always.
