"The conference was organized by UW professor Ryan Calo. He said there’s a role for regulation of robot use in politics to influence elections or deceptive robots used for defrauding people.
“Imagine an artificial intelligent girlfriend that was really just everything you ever wanted and knew everything you thought you wanted, but one of the things it helps you to do is purchase only from the clients of the company that made it,” Calo said.
The conference will also consider international treaties to outlaw robots that make kill decisions on their own.
“And the key phrase is that humans always need to maintain meaningful control,” Calo said. “But there's a lot of definitional problems.”"
