25th Lawrence R. Blinks Memorial Lecture
Title: The Ecology of Collective Behavior
Dr. Deborah Gordon, Stanford University
Collective behavior takes many forms, such as emergence, self-organization, superorganism, quorum sensing, artificial intelligence, and dynamical networks.
We use ant colonies to investigate systems that operate without central control, and explore analogies with other systems, such as the internet, the immune system, and the brain.
