Justin Hutchens Explores The Deception Of Next-Gen Technologies In ‘The Language of Deception’

The Language of Deception: Weaponizing Next Generation AI’ navigates the intersection of artificial intelligence, cybersecurity. It delivers an incisive and penetrating narrative at how contemporary and future Large Language Models (LLMs) can and will be weaponised for malicious and adversarial purposes.

With a foreword by Stuart McClure and authored by Justin Hutchens, ‘The Language of Deception’ is a perfect read for tech enthusiasts, cybersecurity specialists, and AI and machine learning professionals.

What makes this book a standout for me is not just its content but also its context. Hutchens is a recognized figure among ethical hackers, a community to which I proudly belong. His insights, backed by personal experiences and those of other renowned authors in the field, are not just theoretical musings but practical tools for anyone immersed in technology and cybersecurity”, says Darin Fredde, Senior Adversary Emulation Engineer and Adjunct Professor at Dallas College.

‘The Language of Deception’: From foundations to fears

Drawing from complex topics in technology, computer science, philosophy, and social psychology, The Language of Deception emerges as a timely and essential read in an era dominated by rapid advancements in artificial intelligence. This 400-page journey delves deep into foundational concepts, unraveling the history of social engineering, social robotics, and the psychology of deception. Hutchens meticulously considers machine sentience, consciousness, and reflects on the historical context of technology being weaponised.

From these foundational principles, the author embarks on an incisive examination of the emerging risks posed by advanced AI technologies. The narrative encompasses the use of Large Language Models (LLMs) for various malicious purposes, such as social manipulation, disinformation, psychological operations, deception, and fraud. Hutchens extends the exploration to the implementation of LLMs in constructing fully autonomous social engineering systems for targeted attacks or mass manipulation at scale.

The technical use of LLMs, coupled with the underlying transformer architecture, is dissected for its application in advanced next-generation malware, physical robotics, and even autonomous munition systems. The author fearlessly navigates speculative future risks, addressing concerns like the alignment problem, disembodiment attacks, and the looming threat of flash wars.

The book unfolds across eleven thought-provoking chapters, each contributing to a comprehensive understanding of the adversarial potential of AI. From artificial social intelligence to the quest for resolution, Hutchens weaves a narrative that appeals to tech enthusiasts, cybersecurity specialists, and AI professionals alike.

‘The Language of Deception’ is available in paperback and ebook formats, priced at £26.99. The e-book starts at $22.99, and the print version is available starting at $34.95.
