Why you can't trust robots


www.telegraph.co.uk

A new program enables a robot to detect whether another robot is susceptible to lies, and to use its gullibility against it by telling lies, researchers claim.

The robot could be capable of deceiving humans in a similar way, according to the scientists, based at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

And it begins!!!


'Its understanding of the concept of deception would enable the robot to avoid being captured, the scientists said.'

What kind of robots are these guys making?


I actually think that this is pretty cool, although the article is too short for my liking and not enough description of the actual mechanics behind it. As for souring public opinion of robots, we already have robots that can attack and kill people in the hundreds, albeit controlled by humans at this point.

Maybe this is just one step closer to 'artificial' intelligence reaching the 'actual' level...

What????

This article make no sense at all


The breakthrough could lead to military advances through the development of robots which can disarm bombs and carry wounded servicemen from danger.


How can lying disarm a bomb?

Robot: Hey Mr
Bomb: Yeah!
Robot: You erm... Your in the wrong place
Bomb: Hmm well my gps location checks out, I'm all ready to explode and everything, are you sure?
Robot: Yeah erm your mission has changed, Bob told me to tell you
Bomb: You mean Captain Bob?
Robot: Yeah yeah captain Bob thats him
Bomb: Hahahahahahahah there is no captain Bob I was lying to test you, you idiot. BOOOOOOM

Why we can't trust robots? Have you not seen the movie I, Robot?

As long as Will Smiths kid keeps practicing Karate, we will be fine.

You can't trust them, just to a specific degree, point.
What if it gets a virus, it's a robot it does not know it's sick. We use our human side to deal with that, hey I'm crazy, I'm a nut job. A robot can't do that, it will kill and compute it's doing the best job.

I am becoming more worried about some of the advances in robotics, with every piece of news in the robotics industry I get more concerned, in the short term it's great to be making robots better, but I worry about the long term implications of rolling out robots on mass

Don't feel bad, I was thoroughly entrenched in watching right up until I saw an arm. All I could think at that point was "Awwww, damnit...."

Seriously though, if you combine this technology of deception in with this:

New technology could allow people to dictate letters and search the internet simply by thinking, according to researchers at Intel who are behind the project.


You are going to have total control of everyone

Maybe ones that can go around collecting taxes?



When it asks if you are with the Party, it will know if your answer is the truth and deal with you immediately.

I wonder how many large mammals have been shredded along the Korean border by mistake?

I did a thread a while ago about the use 'mind reading' tech. Including a link to an article about the wider implementation of panic sensors for more than just elderly people. The idea is the scanner can sense distress and alert authorities as suppose to having to push a panic button, or being alerted by a bracelet.

Luckily for us at this point the so called 'mind reading' tech needs a lengthy calibration process with the patient before it is in anyway accurate. But I'm sure this will change in the future!
