(light upbeat music) - So one of the big challenges I think we have is, as a country and as a society at large, is how do we fight back against people who are using these technologies for nefarious purposes? That could be in the form of fake news, and people are trying to figure out hey, how do we combat that? And we're still in the early days of dealing with that. But there's also all of these other efforts that we have to figure out, when we are being bombarded by bots and AI, we don't know how to defend against them. We don't know how to create that shield. I think we need a much more holistic approach and a company, a single company, can't just deal with this. We need a national approach. I was appointed at the end of the Obama administration, by President Obama to commission a presidential commission, that is under national critical infrastructure. And in that commission, one of the things is to ask how's our national critical infrastructure? And one of the big reasons I actually resigned from that commission, into the Trump administration, is because, we are not aggressively considering how AI is going to deal consistent blows against out infrastructure. Is when a foreign country wants to attack, or maybe a non-state act, or maybe a terrorist our systems or our society. How do we prepare for that? And the sophistication of attack is going up. Our sophistication is still at this flat. And many ways maybe slightly degrading because our technology's getting older and it's not being updated. And so we need a national approach here to address these problems. - [Interviewer] So the Delta is getting larger and larger, it's time to progress. - That's right. My sincere hope is the Trump administration will address this. But all other administrations, all other governments are going to focus on this as well. And there's certain problems where we don't attack hospitals, we're not, those are rules of the Geneva Convention. Similarly another state, or some type of terrorist group, it should be considered not acceptable to attack the infrastructure of a hospital, even if it's just the infrastructure of their systems. That's a Human Rights violation, and so for these bad guys who are locking up databases of cancer patients, and holding them hostage, because you don't pay, that's a crime. That's not just a crime of economics, that's a crime against humanity. (light upbeat music)
