The findings are most likely an example of convergent evolution between bacteria and more complex multi-cellular organisms including animals and humans.

What's interesting is how the bacteria are able to perceive/observe without a brain.
Under what circumstances would a cell reveal that it is 'intelligent'?
I thought that the best place to start searching was the field of cell movement. A moving cell has to operate its own body in sophisticated ways and, in addition, may have to navigate in space and time while dealing with numerous unforeseeable events, such as encounters with other cells and other objects that its genome could not possibly have anticipated. I think that cell motility, indeed, revealed cell intelligence. This website highlights some of the experiments and offers the images and the arguments that support the claim of cell intelligence.
