Artificial intelligence won't try to fool you unless it's programmed to do that. I don't think AI is that advanced yet, advantage AI.
But as it is for real animals, it’s not always in the robots’ best interests to communicate the location of food. The red ring only has space for 8 robots, so not if every bot turned up, they had to physically shove each other for feeding rights. The effects of this competition became clear when Mitri, Floreano and Keller allowed the emission of blue light to evolve along with the rest of the robots’ behaviour.
As before, they shone randomly at first and as they started to crowd round the food, their lights increasingly gave away its presence. And with that, the robots became more secretive. By the 50th generation, they became much less likely to shine near the food than elsewhere in the arena, and the light became a much poorer source of information that was much less attractive to the robots Nonetheless, the light never became completely useless.
As the bots became more savvy in their illuminations and relied less and less on the lights, individuals that actually did shine near food pay a far shallower price for it. Because of that, the evolutionary pressure to keep others in the dark was lower and the information provided by the lights was never truly suppressed.

I'd take a pathological lying brain surgeon over an AI, # id take a pathological lying editor over predictive text, if you can't see the difference perhaps you might want to take a look at that. Maybe in 50 years I'll say something else *crosses fingers*

I'm not asking this to be a wise-guy or anything... But has recently being scorned by a woman the genesis of this rant? Or perhaps being screwed over by a friend? Who lied to you in an epic way prior to your rant?
