I.-born capabilities to partially automate national security, and even counter-attacks. to do careful political control of an individual or a party’s messaging, aka propaganda. One of Edward Snowden’s more shocking revelations was not that the NSA had begun using A. to augment its cyber-defenses (that should have been assumed), but that it was used its new A.The "@" told the computer I was talking to it directly. If I want to know who's logged in, for instance, I type @who.
