AI: smart swarms vs stupid herds (!)

Fascinating science:
  • "swarms" : groups that communicate in parallel, together, are much smarter than individuals (bees)
  • "herds" : groups where individuals follow one another are just larger, but less smart than individuals (sheep). 
The difference: in "team thinking" there is interactive engagement where individuals of community considers many options in parallel, like small magnets. In "follower" model, individual contribution is much less. So key is in the techniques of communication.

Big idea: to enhance human intelligence by effective communication, to be a viable competition to machine artificial intelligence.
