Definition

Swarm collective intelligence applies to large number of individuals, from hundreds to millions. Either by design or because of the context, individuals don’t have a big differentiation from one another. Their individual margin of action remains limited and, in most cases, predictible. However as a whole, swarm collective intelligence can show immense adaptative and learning capacities.

Examples

  • Social insects (ants, bees, termites…)
  • Big herds
  • Schools of fish
  • Flocks of birds
  • Street protests, trafic jam
