"It sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie — U.S. researchers have given robots the ability be to be deceptive.

"We have developed algorithms that allow a robot to determine whether it should deceive a human or other intelligent machine and we have designed techniques that help the robot select the best deceptive strategy to reduce its chance of being discovered," said Ronald Arkin, a professor in the Georgia Tech School of Interactive Computing, in a release about the study.

The researchers taught a robot how to recognize when a situation warrants the use of deception, then programed it to behave appropriately.
