Swarms act as intelligent organizations: ants and bees
Colonies of social insects such as ants function efficiently because swarms are flexible, robust, and self-organize.

- flexibility (the colony can adapt to a changing environment);
- robustness (even when one or more individuals fail, the group can still perform its tasks); and
- self-organization (activities are neither centrally controlled nor locally supervised).
Application Ideas: Optimized energy use systems. Efficient transportation systems. Efficient computer systems such as file sharing, optimization and control algorithms. Efficient call routing systems.
