Should we teach robots how to lie?
Ask "Alexa, can you lie?" and the answer you'll get is: "I'm not always right but I don't lie". This is obviously what we all expect! As artificial intelligence become more and more advanced, our relationship with them is going to intensify, maybe to a point where they become personal confident. If we want robot to understand us then we ought to teach them when we lie to them or not, which in turn means teaching them how to lie doesn't it. Besides, most people would condemn lying except when there’s a good reason for it — which means that it’s not always wrong. Consider the case where telling a lie would mean that 10 other lies would not be told. If 10 lies are worse than 1 lie then it would seem to be a good thing to tell the first lie doesn’t it. Discuss!
