"...in a chilling echo of the computer Hal from the iconic film, scientists have developed robots that are able to deceive humans and even hide from their enemies. An experiment by researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology is believed to be the first detailed examination of robot deception. The team developed computer algorithms that would let a robot ‘decide’ whether it should deceive a human or another robot and gave it strategies to give it the best chance of not being found out."

The real 2001: Scientists teach robots how to trick humans | Mail Online

"The researchers said that they are aware that there could be ‘ethical implications’ involved in teaching robots how to deceive not just fellow robots but humans, too."

Is this the beginning of something bad? A scientific idea that looks good on paper but can lead to something destructive further down the road? Is this another example of where technology is further along than a thought out set of ethics' laws/rules to go with it?

If some of the great science fiction writers got it right, robots won't have to be taught how to trick humans. They'll figure it out on their own!

As a person who was growing up in the fifties I'd have to say that the love affair with technology has been strained, we were looking forward to the day Bots could do it all for us, wash clothes, clean the car, cook meals and so on, instead they took our jobs and began filming us as we went through that red light. Without a doubt the majority of Americans were beguiled by the promises made by the high priests of science and engineering, a new religion of sorts was established, it went by the name,"Technocracy", it didn't really catch on of course but the drive for new gadgets and systems went undeterred. It wasn't technology itself that we became disdainful of, we simply became aware of the forces that direct it and could see that we humans were being pushed to the side in favor of machinery. Deceptive machines will never be a true competitor to the most capable of all deceivers, humans with an agenda....

Robots don't have to be taught, their "learning" will be a part of their evolution.

Their "learning" will be provided by humans who already deceive, lie to, and "trick" other humans.
It boils down to whether you want to believe it or not, be it from a machine or a human.

why not? the invention of technology....or how it is mis-used and overused to date has already succeeding in stripping us of our humanity, our natural ability to bond and communicate with one another. it can be very draining.
