Artificial intelligence (AI) bots are getting smarter with the capacity to evaluate large volumes of data and make the right decisions. While this has several advantages, there is a possibility that AI bots can be used to commit fraud. Fraud is defined as an intentional deception used to gain an unfair or illegal advantage.
In the context of AI bots, fraud can occur when a person or organization uses an AI bot to deceive others for financial or other gain.
One of the main concerns of rogue AI bots is that they can be configured to act in a way that is hard to detect. For example, an AI bot could be taught to falsify financial data to make it look like a firm is working better than it is. As a result, investors may make decisions based on erroneous information, which can result in financial losses.
Another danger is that AI bots can be deployed to impersonate individuals or organizations. For example, an AI bot can be used to create fake social media profiles or emails that appear to come from a legitimate source like a bank or government agency. As a result, individuals can be tricked into disclosing sensitive information or making false payments.
