The automation of social engineering, influence- and psychological operations, information- and cognitive warfare at scale was one of the biggest early successes of Artificial Intelligence. It was so successful, that virtually nobody talks about it publicly in detail. On the flip-side, Artificial Intelligence is rapidly bringing down the cost of conducting such operations at scale. Access to tools & methods are being democratized which creates asymmetries in the ecosystem and changes the balance of power.
