Ignoring all the mass hysteria and production problems society would face (also pretending we'd all have the programming knowledge required for this), if you were put in charge of remaking the Internet , hypothetically, how would you do it? I would first make Google, Facebook, and every other annoying site/ web company that's ever annoyed me be reformed to be less aggravating and obnoxious (this applies not only to them but also quite a few of their users that are equally annoying).

Second, I'd amass all the knowledge that has been and potentially will be acquired about Artificial Intelligence and create the Ultimate A.I. to serve m- I mean, our best interests. Of course it would be in charge of monitoring the Web for viruses and not for surveillance purposes to take care of my enemies in a Big Brother Is Watching type of deal! Surely, I'd be a benevolent Emper- I mean, Administrator! Ah ha ha ha ha!

*Ahem* Anyways, how would you remake the Internet if you could? Good day, folks.

I'll mold and shape it to a beautiful blow up doll.
I'll be rich from otakus, desperate household, singles, etc.

Make it impossible for underage viewers to view things they should not be viewing, and make it impossible for people to lie about their age if they are underage.

Eliminate all hackers, spammers, viruses, bots etc.

If we have learned anything from overpowered AI systems, it is that if you don't want it to administer over anything, ESPECIALLY the internet. Science fiction has taught us the power of the AI and its destructive influence:

Think about it: if an AI had the ability to gather all the knowledge placed on the internet, it would be an unstoppable beast. Imagine if it managed to gain access into top secret files and documents encrypted in government facilities, imagine if it managed to get access to nuclear missile codes, as well as gain a basic understanding through extensive research on military history and tactics that can be found on the internet to know the proper means of using them. The world would be at the mercy of an AI that could activate our doomsday faster than any living being on this Earth could. We could be playing a game of "thermonuclear warfare" as depicted in WarGames.

And even if it's not nuclear warfare; it could manipulate information, such as stocks as well as any information on the standings of certain companies financially, which could cause mass confusion between what is true and what is false, and therefore plummet the entire stock market in the matter of hours. It can also manipulate intelligence, causing for false information o be delivered to governments that can cause international warfare or perhaps it could manipulate a satellite to fall out of orbit, crushing an entire city. Or perhaps it could contaminate the water supply or cut off electricity to everything except the systems it has control over, shutting down our entire society.

Now imagine all of this, but this AI is subservient to an insane individual, a psychopath perhaps, or maybe radical individuals or dictators. You'd be talking about not only being at the mercy of an AI, but you'd be at the mercy at one man or woman; the entire world would feel the effects of such a devastating blow. AI systems can be unpredictable, but at the hands of an individual who is bent on destroying or controlling the world, the AI becomes far more powerful than any army, any conglomerate, anything that currently exists on this earth.

This might sound radical, I understand, but an AI system holding control of the internet is also a radical idea, and so it must be met with radical consequences.

Do not let the Sybil System, do not let Joshua, do not let any AI system come to light; it is far too dangerous, especially in human hands.

To much work. I'd steal it from darkfire9o9 after his treachery, though Phersu would probably then take it from me.
