Calling All Robot Experts

My robot partner made the strangest and one of the costliest crazy plays I have seen with the robots.

I'm hoping one or more of the experts at playing with robots can come up with any rationale whatsoever on how the programming could lead to the play the robot made on this hand:

The play in question occurred on the 4th trick. And to complete the robots' joke on me the declaring robot did not finesse for the jack on the continuation of trumps.

That play cost me about $30.

Any comments from robot expert players or programmers?
