Robots that artificially evolve ways to communicate with one another have been demonstrated by Swiss researchers. The experiments suggest that simulated evolution could be a useful tool for those designing of swarms of robots.
Roboticists Dario Floreano, Sara Mitri, and Stéphane Magnenat at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne collaborated with biologist Laurent Keller from the University of Lausanne.
In contrast, in simulations with bots not closely related and when group performance was less important, some robots evolved misleading behaviour. Some even produced signals that lured other bots away far from food.

Yup, if simple robots like these are already able to develop deceiving behaviour thats directed at "other robots that are of another race/make/model" imagine what a full scale human level intelligent AI could do to its makers.
