Submission + - Teaching robots to lie - what could possible go wrong... (geekosystem.com) 2

another random user writes: Disappointed that your Roomba can't clean your house while also telling you that you that shirt your girlfriend hates looks great on you? Researchers at Georgia Tech are working hard to solve that problem by teaching robots to lie, and they’re taking lessons in lying from some of nature’s most deceptive animals — squirrels. Because hey, what could possibly go wrong with that plan?

Deception is not something that comes very naturally to today’s artificial intelligence programs. For most robots, it's hard enough to navigate the world the way it is without introducing fantasies about the way it's not into the equation. So to help robots get the hang of misleading others, the team has turned to the squirrel, or "forest liar", to give robots the tools they need to learn the subtle arts of deception.
