The 'test subjects' were instructed to interact with the robot and evaluate the robots performance on a task.
 
If the robot made too many mistakes, they were instructed to make it switch himself off.
 
What they didn't knew is that the robot would then beg the user not to shut him off because that would erase his memory and he would "die".
