Two paradigms for the design of artificial collectives

  title={Two paradigms for the design of artificial collectives},
  author={Kristina Lerman and Aram Galstyan},
Artificial collectives are systems composed of multiple autonomous information or software agents, mobile robots, or nodes in a sensor or communication networks. In the future, such systems will be responsible for many important tasks, such as highway traffic control, disaster response, toxic spill monitoring and clean-up, as well as exploration of other planets. Because such systems will have to function in environments with unreliable communication channels, where agents are likely to fail… CONTINUE READING
