Abstract

We consider machines that have the ability to masquerade as human in the context of Floridi's information ethics and artificial evil. We analyse a variety of different robots and contexts and the ethical implications for the development of such robots. We demonstrate numerous concerns that arise due to the ambiguity introduced by masquerading machines, suggesting a need for careful consideration regarding the development of masquerading robots.
