Robots that can deceive humans!

by Bipin Shah Self Employed

Researchers in U.S. are developing robots that can deceive humans and other robots. These robots, if everything done alright, can probably be used for military in future.

Scientists have developed a robot that can deceive an enemy soldier by creating a false trail and hiding so that it will not be caught. The study was published in the International Journal of Social Robotics.

Ronald Arkin, an author of the study said, "We have made algorithms that allow a robot to determine whether it should deceive a human or an intelligent machine and we have designed techniques that help the robot select the best deceptive strategy to reduce its chance of being found."

In future, robots capable of deception may be valuable for several different areas, including military, search and rescue operations. Robots on the battlefield with the power of deception will be able to successfully hide and mislead the enemy to keep themselves safe.

For this study, the researchers focused on the actions, beliefs and communications of a robot attempting to hide from another robot to develop programs to produced deceptive behaviour.

The first step of the developers was to teach the bot how to recognise a situation that warranted the use of deception. To test their algorithms, the researchers ran 20 hide-and-seek experiments with the two bots.
The hider robots were able to deceive the seeker robots in 75 percent of the trials, with the failed experiments resulting from the hiding robot's inability to knock over the correct markers to produce the desired deception.

According to the researchers, while there may be advantages to creating deceptive bots, there are also ethical implications that need to be considered to ensure that these creations are consistent with the overall expectations and well-being of society.
