Topics of Interest
Interested in the potential of the unsupervised multitude, I study the possibilities of swarm intelligence to outperform centralised coordination schemes. More particularly, I investigate the use of communication between individuals to induce meaningful group behaviours. In this research, emphasis is put on the development of algorithms and systems that are simple, robust and scalable.
