Summary
Draws on the examples of insect colonies and fish schools to demonstrate how ancient animal instincts surpass modern human developments in speed and productivity, revealing how numerous technological breakthroughs were inspired by natural organizations. POPULAR SCIENCE. How Understanding Flocks, Schools and Colonies Can Make Us Better at Communicating, Decision Making and Getting Things Done. The modern world may be obsessed with speed and productivity, but twenty-first century humans actually have much to learn from the ancient instincts of swarms. A fascinating new take on the concept of collective intelligence and its colourful manifestations in some of our most complex problems, Smart Swarm introduces a compelling new understanding of the real experts on solving our own complex problems relating to such topics as business, politics, and technology. Based on extensive globe-trotting research, this lively tour from National Geographic reporter Peter Miller introduces thriving throngs of ant colonies, which have inspired computer programs for streamlining factory processes, telephone networks, and truck routes and termites, used in recent studies for climate-control solutions.
