Measuring Machine Intelligence of an Agent-Based Distributed Sensor Network System
A measure of machine intelligence facilitates comparing alternatives having different complexity. In this paper, a method for measuring the machine intelligence quotient (MIQ) of human-machine cooperative systems is adapted and applied to measure the MIQ of an agent-based distributed sensor network system. Results comparing the MIQ of different agent-based scenarios are presented for the distributed sensor network application. The MIQ comparison is contrasted with the average sensor network field life, a key performance indicator, achieved with each scenario in Monte Carlo simulations.
