Jakarta: A total of 142 body bags have been taken to the site where an Indonesian military plane crashed on Tuesday in Medan city, officials said on Wednesday.
According to police, as the body bags may contain only parts of the bodies, it is yet unclear how many bodies have been recovered, Xinhua reported.
Earlier, local media reports quoted police officers as saying that 141 bodies have been recovered at the site.
The ill-fated C-130 Hercules plane crashed into downtown of Medan on Tuesday shortly after takeoff.
The Indonesian military said there were 122 people aboard the plane, revising an earlier statement that said 113 people were on board.
Some 59 bodies have been identified from the body bags, said Sairi Saragih, an official at the Adam Malik hospital, adding “eight of those identified bodies have been brought to the airport, to be handed over by the Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) team to their families.”
Artificial Intelligence (AI) poses risk of hackers
AI uses computer system to do daily activities
AI uses many computer systems which can be misused by hackers
Rapid advances in artificial intelligence are raising risks that malicious users will soon exploit the technology to mount automated hacking attacks, cause driverless car crashes or turn commercial drones into targeted weapons, a new report warns.
The study, published on Wednesday by 25 technical and public policy researchers from Cambridge, Oxford and Yale universities along with privacy and military experts, sounded the alarm for the potential misuse of AI by rogue states, criminals and lone-wolf attackers.
The researchers said the malicious use of AI poses imminent threats to digital, physical and political security by allowing for large-scale, finely targeted, highly efficient attacks. The study focuses on plausible developments within five years.
“We all agree there are a lot of positive applications of AI,” Miles Brundage, a research fellow at Oxford’s Future of Humanity Institute. “There was a gap in the literature around the issue of malicious use.”
Artificial intelligence, or AI, involves using computers to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as making decisions or recognizing text, speech or visual images.
It is considered a powerful force for unlocking all manner of technical possibilities but has become a focus of strident debate over whether the massive automation it enables could result in widespread unemployment and other social dislocations.
The 98-page paper cautions that the cost of attacks may be lowered by the use of AI to complete tasks that would otherwise require human labour and expertise. New attacks may arise that would be impractical for humans alone to develop or which exploit the vulnerabilities of AI systems themselves.
It reviews a growing body of academic research about the security risks posed by AI and calls on governments and policy and technical experts to collaborate and defuse these dangers.
The researchers detail the power of AI to generate synthetic images, text and audio to impersonate others online, in order to sway public opinion, noting the threat that authoritarian regimes could deploy such technology.
The report makes a series of recommendations including regulating AI as a dual-use military/commercial technology.
It also asks questions about whether academics and others should rein in what they publish or disclose about new developments in AI until other experts in the field have a chance to study and react to potential dangers they might pose.
“We ultimately ended up with a lot more questions than answers,” Brundage said. VOA
