Mind-Melting Swarm Generated by Computer!

Computers are already one of their kind smart devices. Cataloging the breadth of ever growing and incredible human knowledge, they are getting better and better. No matter what is it; flying spacecrafts to the different worlds or finding meanings in the gazillion dollop of the cloud data; it is really the amazing way to measure the artificial intelligence features.

Well, we all know about Swarm Intelligence and its amazing effects in the fields of science and engineering. Swarm Intelligence is nothing but the collective behavior self organized and the decentralized systems that are either artificial or natural. The work related to the artificial intelligence sees this concept being employed on a greater end. The term was first brought to light by Jing Wang and Gerardo Beni in the year 1989. This concept then was in the context of the robotic systems that were cellular based.

Swarm Intelligence particularly comprises of the population of simple boids or agents that are involved in the interaction with each other and their ambience. The inspiration and the motivation for this often come from the biological systems that form the integral part of the nature. The agents are required to follow absolutely simplified rules. Even if there is no such particular centralized structure for the control that dictates both the random and the local behavior of the agents, interactions that happen between these types of agents results into the global behavior emergence termed as the ‘intelligent behavior’. Individual agents are clueless about this behavior. In the natural system, the Swarm intelligence can be explained with the examples of bacterial growth, fish schooling, etc. Also the ant colonies, animal herding, and the bird flocking explain the definition of Swarm Intelligence. Even if the definition of the Swarm Intelligence still lies in vagueness, it yet can be explained as the self organized behavioral multi agent system that displays some manner of intelligent behavior.

Now, it is possible to alter the flock of birds with eye catching fireflies on a real dark night. Swarms like the school of fish and the flock of birds are actually complicated pertaining to the mathematics. But, with the advent of both time and technology, the scientists researching on the computers are getting better with the modeling and the process of learning from the conducted thesis as well as the researches. Lazar Jeremic and Cyrill Studer formed a visual instrument. It simulates the co-ordinate flight of the birds using a code. This visual instrument is manipulated with the help of a button and a knob to witness the moving swarm. It is truly breath taking.

Computers have actually come a long way in deciphering the complicated inputs like movements, image recognitions and sounds. The newer processors could apparently process with the science of reasoning that is even more connected to the working mannerism of the neurons filtering eclectic piece of information streams alongside.
