Posted on 09/11/2010 6:37:35 AM PDT by Immerito
It sounds like something straight out of Stanley Kubricks 2001: A Space Odyssey.
But, 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.

“Oh what a tangled web you weave when we practice to deceive. ...”
I’m sure nothing bad will come of this. They had the best intentions after all.
Hello, do you have prince albert in a can?
What’s new about this? I thought Al Gore had been trying to deceive us about global warming for more than a decade now.
He said he’d be back. He warned us.
All they have to do is program the robot using Alinsky’s handbook of sleeze.
On the other hand, maybe all the BS going on in the world today are people who have come back in time who want to alter the future!/SAR
I really don't like the idea of machines being able to think, it opens up to many possibilities of machines running amok.
“Are you testing whether I’m a replicant, or a lesbian, Mr. Deckard?”
If we aren’t being visited by travelers from the future, it could be due to:
1. Travel back in time is not possible; or,
2. For the human race, there is no future.
...and now he has the programming to lie to us.
Come to think of that, all the terminators have that programming.
...or they’re already here, working covertly.
I met a woman last night who is part of a program to have robots work with developmentally disabled children...some extension of a NASA program.
The Robots actually self-adjust to the child they are assigned to...spoken language vs sign language...helping them eat or helping them get a couple of laps around the yard in a wheelchair.
They remember names and every part of every "conversation" they had with the kid.
WILD STUFF going on with robotics right now.
