Swarm Machines Learn by Simply Observing

Scientists at the University of Sheffield claim that it’s possible for machines to learn how natural or artificial systems function simply by observing them, without being told what to look for. This discovery was published in the scientific journal Swarm Intelligence and was inspired by the Turing Test, a test named after the computer scientist Alan Turing. This test consists of a human instructor, a machine and a human. During this test the instructor addresses questions to the machine and the human without knowing which is which. If the instructor consistently fails to recognize which one is which, the machine has passed the test and is considered to have human-level intelligence.
