Swarm intelligence: From insects to humans

  • The Skylight Room (Rm 9100) The Graduate Center, CUNY 365 5th Ave. New York, NY 10016 USA (map)

Guy Theraulaz, University of Toulouse and CNRS

Sometimes the whole really is more than the sum of its parts. As humans, we organize ourselves into groups that accomplish more than any of us could alone, and so do many other animals. Professor Theraulaz will give us a guided tour of his influential work on these remarkable phenomena, from the construction of nests by ants and wasps, to the schooling of fish and the behavior of human crowds.
