    Study: Robots Capable Of Developing Prejudice On Their Own
    https://www.studyfinds.org/study-rob...ing-prejudice/

    ...For the study, the researchers set up computer simulations of how prejudiced individuals can form a group and interact with each other. They created a game of give and take, in which each individual virtual agent makes a decision whether or not to donate to another individual inside their own working group or another group. The decisions were made based on each individual’s reputation and their donating strategy, including their levels of prejudice towards individuals in outside groups.

    As the game progresses, a supercomputer performs thousands of simulations, and each individual begins to learn new strategies by copying the others within their group or the entire population.

    “By running these simulations thousands and thousands of times over, we begin to get an understanding of how prejudice evolves and the conditions that promote or impede it,” explains co-author professor Roger Whitaker, from Cardiff’s Crime and Security Research Institute and the School of Computer Science and Informatics, in a release.

    “Our simulations show that prejudice is a powerful force of nature and through evolution, it can easily become incentivized in virtual populations, to the detriment of wider connectivity with others. Protection from prejudicial groups can inadvertently lead to individuals forming further prejudicial groups, resulting in a fractured population. Such widespread prejudice is hard to reverse.”

    My guess is that they develop the prejudices of their programmers.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
    Psalm 55:22

    I totally dispute that study.

    What's next? Developing 'envy'?

    Prejudice derives from our survival-instinct. To insure maximum survival, don't place maximum trust in any thing or any other biological lifeform to keep you vital.

    Creating 'a game of give-and-take' is the problem right out of the gate. That's too psychological. Too narrow... to draw a broad conclusion from.

    We could paint them black or brown and they would be incapable of being racist..........but wait then they would be in blackface..............danger danger this does not compute.... processor overload shutting down!!!!!

    Speaking of 9000, you know what's really tough, the US-Military is finding-out? Programming AI to make random, yet non-catastrophic mistakes… so enemy AI's can't predict how they operationally perform.
