The LIEBOT project is based on preparatory works by Prof. Dr. Oliver
Bendel, who created the GOODBOT together with his team. He has
published several articles on this subject and presented automatic
strategies with a view to lying. The LIEBOT prototype was implemented
by Kevin Schwegler, in his bachelor thesis in business informatics for
the School of Business FHNW. He was supported by Prof. Dr. Oliver
Bendel and Prof. Dr. Bradley Richards.
The objective of the LIEBOT project is to give practical
evidence of the potential of lies and risks of natural language
systems. Online media and websites create or aggregate more and more
texts automatically (robo-content) and robo-journalism is growing.
Natural language chatbots are becoming very popular. The risk of
deliberately introduced bias in such systems is apparent. The goal of
the LIEBOT is be able to produce untruths and to respond in a morally
inadequate manner, as a means of investigating both the mechanics and
the ethics of lie production.
