Scientists at the University of Southern California (USC), Intel Labs, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences demonstrated that robots can be trained to train other robots by sharing their knowledge.

The researchers developed the Shared Knowledge Lifelong Learning (SKILL) tool to teach artificial intelligence agents 102 unique tasks whose knowledge they then shared over a decentralized communication network.

The researchers said they found the SKILL tool's algorithms speed up the learning process by allowing agents to learn concurrently in parallel.

The work indicated learning time shrinks by a factor of 101.5 when 102 agents each learn one task and then share.
