A robot capable of deceitful behaviour has been developed at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
The robot is able to determine whether another robot is susceptible to lies and then takes action to exploit that. It is hoped that the technology could help faciliate the creation of robots that can disarm bombs and carry wounded servicemen from danger.
"A new program enables a robot to detect whether another robot is susceptible to lies, and to use its gullibility against it by telling lies, researchers claim."
