Amid worries of robots someday taking over the world, the Navy has a solution: teach them to act civilized.

The Quixote project, according to Vocativ, aims to pass on human ethics and normal behavioral traits onto robots through artificial intelligence software.

Part of the project involves putting together a "human user's manual," which the project participants — the Office of Naval Research and researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology — hope will keep robots from eventually getting unruly and taking on a mind of their own.

To get there, researchers are essentially building video game simulations of real-life scenarios. The goal is to have the robots learn from the scenarios via their software.

"We believe story comprehension in robots can eliminate psychotic-appearing behavior and reinforce choices that won't harm humans and still achieve the intended purpose," team leader Mark Riedl said.

Android co-founder Andy Rubin said recently he believes robots will, at some point in the future, control almost everything around us.
