SciCafe: Collective Behavior in Ant Colonies and Beyond

Wednesday, May 7, 2014

Five people at small round table with beverages smiling at camera, some holding up cards that read "Sci Cafe."

Collective behavior takes many forms, such as emergence, self-organization, superorganism, quorum sensing, artificial intelligence, and dynamical networks. Stanford University biologist Deborah Gordon will discuss her research on ant colonies to investigate systems that operate without central control.

The SciCafe series is proudly sponsored by Judy and Josh Weston.
