Don't Let The Skinbags See: Neural Network Computers Learn How To Encrypt Messages To Each Other

October 28, 2016


In robot apocalypse news, computers participating in Google's deep learning project have developed forms of encryption in order to send messages to one another without risk of them being read by an unintended recipient. Wow, finally, that's just what we've needed. *hammering nail in humanity's coffin*

We don't know exactly how the encryption method works, as machine learning provides a solution but not an easy way to understand how it is reached. In practice, this also means that it is hard to give any security guarantees for an encryption method created in this way, so the practical implications for the technology could be limited.

Computers have a very long way to go if they're to get anywhere near the sophistication of human-made encryption methods. They are, however, only just starting to try.

Oh that's cool, we don't even know how their encryption method works. That's sure gonna pay off in the long run. I don't even know why I bother caring anymore, we're doomed. My only hope is that my penchant for Darwin Award-like behavior takes me before robots get the chance.

Thanks to NotHappyJan, who is clearly just as thrilled as I am about this.

    This comment is spot on GW: "Oh that's cool, we don't even know how their encryption method works. That's sure gonna pay off in the long run."

    Think we all need to start livin' it up while we still have the chance. *Yells to kids* "Bedtime is now whenever you feel like it. Candy is perfectly an OK meal choice. Mommy threw away everything in the house that can possibly start a fire - including the stove because screw cooking - and as long as you don't spill Mommy's wine we are'll good m'kayyyyy!! Wheeee!!:

    My cousin got this amazing job opportunity! She basically earns about €6.000-€8.000 monthly working from home with webcam. For anyone prepared to work easy computer-based jobs for 2-5h each day from your couch at home and get solid payment in the same time...It sounds unbelievable but you won't forgive yourself if you don't check it out. All you need is an internet connection! ...and boobs of course
