(27) Shake those bees back and forth: Smart swarm intelligence - YouTube Sep 2018
"What happens when you shake a swarm? This bundle of buzzing bees changes shape to form a more stable structure. This clever response is the result of individual bees following simple rules - a kind of emergent intelligence."

Toothbrushes, BristleBots And the Nature of Intelligence | MIT Technology Review
"These guys make their discovery using BristleBots, simple automatons made from a toothbrush head and a cellphone vibrator motor.  Put a few of these into a circular enclosure and they wander around at random. But when Giomi and co increased the number of BristleBots, they began to self-organise into things like swirling swarms."

Kirstie Bellman, "The Role of Reflection and Emergence in Complex Adaptive Systems" (video stream)

Abstract: "... In this talk, the author discusses two key architectural concepts, controlled sources of variation and reflective architectures, drawn from her work in Neuroscience and Computer Science. After describing some of her research group’s existing approaches to computational reflection, the author will discuss the exciting goals and approaches being developed under the German-led Organic Computing (OC) movement..."
