This article (4 page PDF) demonstrates a relationship between the way flies smell things and the way similarity-based search works in neural networks. This is important because similarity is arguably a cognitive foundation for artificial intelligence, and correspondingly, human intelligence. The flies accomplish this through something like tagging - but the tags demote not only the specific scent, but also some information about the scent's relation to other scents in a vector space.
