Robots Learn How To Lie


Posted January 15, 2008 - By Mike D'Alonzo

Our glorious robot friends have learned new tricks! This means we are ever closer to the rule they promise, one wherein we are free of human emotions and allowed to work in peace and quiet! Recent robot testing shows that robots can evolve over time, and even deceive each other (though that would be warranted, we'd guess) and learn to be heroes! Here's how it works.

Scientists built a room full of sensors that would give robots energy when they rolled over them. Over time, the robots learned to go to the sensors to find the energy, but they also learned not to reveal themselves, in an effort to dupe other robots from getting the energy themselves. And then, some robots sacrificed themselves so that others might get energy. I, for one, admire them.
