Swarm intelligence and business process optimization

Dancing bees help businesses describes how researchers at Cardiff University have developed an algorithm based on the honeybee waggle dance to help companies optimize their business processes.

The Bees algorithm allows a company to change up to 3000 variables in one or many processes and to find the optimum outcome.

In an earlier article, Bumblebee waggle dance doubters disarmed, I described how honeybees use the waggle dance to point their hive mates to food sources.

The Waggle dance is also very good example of the power of one to many communications in teams. For more on the benefits of every member team broadcasting see Virtual team productivity - three action rules from nature.

For more on the bee waggle dance see THE BEE WAGGLE DANCE: A LINGUISTIC ANALYSIS OF INSECT LANGUAGE.

My thanks to Paul Sweeney, for foraging this.
