Robots Teach Each Other How to Play Pac-Man
Researchers at Washington State University have created computer programs that teach each other how to play Pac-Man. The two programs have different roles: One program is a teacher and the other is a student. The teacher helped the student improve its technique as the student progressed throughout the game.
The researchers have setup this program with a goal to eventually create machines that can train replacements. One master machine may train a fleet of blank machines to accomplish specific tasks, and so forth. Eventually, trained and skilled machines could train people in a more human-like approach.
For now, don't worry. Your high score is probably safe.
