Abstract: Communication involves transferring information from one agent to another. An intelligent agent, either human or machine, is often able to choose to hide information in order to protect their own interests. In this paper, we examine the significance of information hiding from the perspective of beneficial intelligence. Is a computational agent ever justified in preventing human users from accessing information? Conversely, are humans ever under any form of obligation to share information with a computional agent? We discuss the situation from an ethical perspective, and we also address a more pragmatic question: How can we develop safeguards to ensure that machines do not keep secrets in a malicious manner? We suggest that a viable solution to this problem already exists.
