I read an article awhile back where some bots were programmed to believe that blocks were food and vital to their survival. Several bots were placed in an area and the blocks were in the center. at first the bots simply went out, got some food and took it to their corner. Over time, to the programmers surprise, the bots began to block other bots from getting any food. they began stealing the blocks other bots had taken and began blocking bots so that they could get more than their fair share.
I read this in a magazine so its just got to be true
I also ran across an article where some bots were programmed with AI and one not only refused to follow orders, it escaped. made it to the parking lot and was damn near ran over by a car.
"After a light touch on a point on the base, the duck, in the most natural way in the world begins to look around him, eyeing the audience with an intelligent air. His lord and master, however, apparently interprets this differently, for he soon goes off to look for something for the bird to eat. No sooner has he filled a dish with oatmeal porridge than our famished friend plunges his beak deep into it, showing his satisfaction by some characteristic movements of his tail. The way in which he takes the porridge and swallows it greedily is extraordinarily true to life. In next to no time the basin has been half emptied, although on several ocasions the bird, as if alarmed by some unfamiliar noises, has raisde his head and glanced curiously around him. After this, satisfied with his frugal meal, he stands up and begins to flap his wings and stretch himself while expressing his gratitude by several contented quacks."
