Intelligent Bacteria..

I’m quite intrigued by the thought that the group of bacteria is analogous to a neural network. That is, even though a single bacteria is dumb but collectively they show “swarm intelligence”.

And also what is more astonishing is that the collection behaves much like our brain.. both have signal mechanisms, encode and sums inputs, produce outputs etc…

So I was thinking why not to train a bacterial colony to play the game of chess or perhaps use them for simple classification tasks….

So we may call this Bio-intelligence which is analogous to Artificial Intelligence

Perhaps future robots may contain bacteria not silicon…
