Teaching robots to lie

Come the robot revolution, we'll all probably be forced to play hide-and-seek a lot. Researchers at Georgia Tech have worked out algorithms that allow robots to learn when a situation might call for some less-than-honest behavior, and help our soon-to-be-overlords figure out how best to deceive us. So far, the robots have only used this new-found ability to lay false trails during games of hide-and-go-seek. But I think we all know what's coming. Eventually.
