Knowledge transfer between computers: Computers teach each other Pac-Man -- ScienceDaily
Geege Schuman stashed this in Bots
Researchers had the agents -- as the virtual robots are called -- act like true student and teacher pairs: student agents struggled to learn Pac-Man and a version of the StarCraft video game. The researchers were able to show that the student agent learned the games and, in fact, surpassed the teacher.
That's a little bit cool and a little bit frightening.
Computers teaching each other? That's one step closer to consciousness.
