Machines master the art of being human

The first self learning robots can find an electrical outlet and plug themselves in: basic survival 101.

The next stage in evolution is learning to deceive, to lie:

"After nine generations the robots had learned to follow the blue signals of others who found food, pushing and shoving to get to the source.

By 500 generations, 60 per cent of robots had learned to keep their blue signal light off when they found the food to stop other machines muscling in on their resource."

It would seem that learning human traits isn't as difficult for robots as we'd always imagined.

Robots learn to cheat each other to get ahead
