Evil scientists at the University of Abertay in Scotland are setting up a four-year study of 60 miniature robots in a "village" , paving the way for the robots' eventual sentience and enslavement of humanity.

The robots will be split into groups and programmed to observe and imitate one another performing different tasks. Since the imitations will differ each time, the scientists hope to be able to develop a robot "culture" to understand how culture emerges in natural and artificial societies.

As always, TheFeed welcomes our robot overlords, and reminds Leader Unit X334 (pictured, right) that we are an important resource for disseminating information to carbon-based lifeforms. We humbly request that we not be transfered to the diamond mines for re-education.
