Is it possible for AI to control a surveillance network? I am reminded of the movie The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes where a computer "goes haywire" and takes over a teen boy's body. It was just a movie and is not possible. A network is controlled by a program which is created and maintained by a team of humans. AI is not capable of creativity. AI excels in repetitive, automatic tasks. Unless programmed, AI would not know how to do what it does.
To assume that AI can objectify humans, that assumes that AI can have an opinion and can have feelings. Is this possible? Can a robot cry? Can a robot get mad?
There *is* a certain ghost-in-the-machine quality (meta-consciousness) that *people* have, that the computer *can't* have, because if it *were* really on-par with human abilities, then human society would necessarily have to *socialize* it properly -- just as with animals.
'AI' as we know it today basically still means 'expert system', more-precisely, even though it can now impressively create any imaginable photo or artwork, just from text prompts.
The *best* way to understand artificial intelligence -- and our *own*, natural intelligence -- is from this following demonstration:
