Social Intelligence

Social ant intelligence -- or the social whole -- sometimes is, or becomes, more intelligent than its parts:
With their tiny wires and circuits, robotic ants won’t be taking over the world anytime soon.
But what these artificial insects lack in processing power, they make up for in efficiency: Robotic ants can automatically choose the shortest route from their food sources back to their nests, just like real ants, a new study says. This gives valuable insight into how people should plan transportation and communication systems.
