As artificial intelligence technology becomes more and more mainstream, its influence is now reaching all corners of the internet, and in the last month, two of the darkest corners have announced their plans to unleash their very own AI engines on the world.

Gab, a white supremacist forum that's a favorite of mass shooters and organizers of the Capitol riot, and 8kun, the home of QAnon, have announced they're launching AI engines— and they're training them on the same content that has in the past led multiple internet companies to cut ties and take the platforms offline.

Artificial intelligence is everywhere right now, and many are questioning the safety and morality of the AI systems released by some of the world's biggest companies, including Open AI's ChatGPT, Bing's Sydney, and Google's Bard. It was only a matter of time until the online spaces where extremists gather became interested in the technology.
