Swarm robots trigger artificial intelligence breakthrough

British engineers say it is now possible for machines to learn how natural or artificial systems work by simply observing them. Dr Roderich Gross from the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering at the University of Sheffield said they devised a variation of the Turing Test called Turing Learning. In the original test, an interrogator exchanges messages with two players in a different room: one human, the other a machine. The interrogator has to determine which of the players is human. If they consistently fail, the machine has passed the test, and is considered to have human-level intelligence. “In our case, we put a swarm of robots under surveillance and wanted to find out which rules caused their movements,” said Gross. “To do so, we put a second swarm…
