Initial Experiments in Using Communication Swarms to Improve the Performance of Swarm Systems

Abstract : Swarm intelligence can provide robust, adaptable, scalable solutions to difficult problems. The distributed nature of swarm activity is the basis of these desirable qualities, but it also prevents swarm-based techniques from having direct access to global knowledge that could facilitate the task at hand. Our experiments indicate that a swarm system can use an auxiliary swarm, called a communication swarm, to create and distribute an approximation of useful global knowledge, without sacrificing robustness, adaptability, and scalability. We describe a communication swarm and validate its effectiveness on a simple problem.
