Crash of Internet

The modern Internet has a huge internal resistance and a huge internal dissonance.

Applied and developed artificial intelligence systems require more computing resources.

Congestion of routing nodes, congestion of communication channels, incalculable amounts of information are just the "tip of the iceberg" of problems that will cause the Internet to suddenly stop working.

Most of the Internet is controlled by several corporations. A failure in the operation of systems of a large provider will inevitably lead to failures in the operation of all systems that directly depend on the work of a large provider or information provider. This will also lead to disruptions in other segments of the network and to disruptions in the work of other major information providers and providers, since they are all closely interconnected.

The most striking and obvious problem of the Internet is the increasing volume of information that cannot be measured. New information appears at an incredible rate every day. Just in order to store existing information, huge resources are required, since the equipment is constantly outdated and needs to be updated. However, in order to store and process a multiplying amount of information, it is necessary to constantly increase computing power.

One of the ways to solve this problem is to destroy old and outdated data. However, determining which information should be destroyed is also an important and serious issue.

Another problem is the increasing number of client devices that create a load on information transmission channels and routing nodes.

Disconnecting the Internet will lead to the paralysis of the world economy and global chaos.

Do you think there is a problem of vulnerability of the Internet to global failure and global collapse, and if so, how, in your opinion, should this problem be solved?
