The course will address collective intelligence as observed in natural systems and related implementations in artificial systems. The complex dynamics underlying the studied collective behaviour will be analysed and distilled to determine the individual rules underling the emergence of complex macroscopic patterns.
The course will cover the following topics:
- exploration through (reinforced) random walks
- self-organised aggregation
- coordinated motion
- collective decision-making
- task allocation.
