Omohundro's reserch is discussed in this article: "Why There Will Be A Robot Uprising" by Patrick Tucker [^].
 
The paper cited is here: Steven Omohundro, "Autonomous technology and the greater human good," in Journal of Experimental & Theoretical Artificial Intelligence, 10 Apr 2014. Full-text .pdf here: [^]
“We show that these systems are likely to behave in anti-social and harmful ways unless they are very carefully designed. Designers will be motivated to create systems that act approximately rationally and rational systems exhibit universal drives towards self-protection, resource acquisition, replication and efficiency. The current computing infrastructure would be vulnerable to unconstrained systems with these drives”
"Unfortunately, the net effect of all these drives is likely to be quite negative if they are not
countered by including prosocial terms in their utility functions. The rational chess robot with the simple utility function described above would behave like a paranoid human sociopath fixated on chess."
An interesting paper with all kinds of fascinating factoids, and, imho, an over-the-top thesis.

“I speak in a poem of the ancient food of heroes: humiliation, unhappiness, discord. Those things are given to us to transform, so that we may make from the miserable circumstances of our lives things that are eternal, or aspire to be so.” Jorge Luis Borges
