Stigmergy in the brain Neurotransmitters and Neuromodulators Stigmergy being a coordination mechanism, in which an action left in a medium stimulates the performance of a subsequent action, it becomes  ...  In a series of two articles Heylighen (2016a) and (Heylighen, 2016b ) reviews a variety of cases and analyses this mechanism in detail.  ...

General theory of stigmergy: Modelling stigma semantics

Aiden Dipple, Kerry Raymond, Michael Docherty
2014 Cognitive Systems Research  
Stigmergy describes a communication mechanism based on environment-mediated signals which trigger responses among the insects.  ...  Stigmergy is also observed in human environments, both natural and engineered. It is implicit in the Web where sites provide a virtual environment supporting coordinative contributions.  ...  Stigmergy is shown as being pervasive within human systems and the power of the phenomenon stems from the lack of requiring a central control mechanism.  ...

Elements of software ecosystem early-stage design for collective intelligence systems

Juergen Musil, Angelika Musil, Stefan Biffl
2013 Proceedings of the 2013 International Workshop on Ecosystem Architectures - WEA 2013  
We have identified selforganization and feedback mechanisms as essential characteristics in CI-centered SECOs and thus introduce design elements for structuring them properly at an early stage of design  ...  We discuss the concept with a real-world use case from a widely used CI-centered SECO, Wikipedia. A major result is the successful mapping of the design elements to the specific SECO elements.  ...  An interesting control process is stigmergy (from Greek stigma: sign, and ergon: work), which is a bio-inspired indirect communication mechanism, where agents communicate by modifying their environment  ...

SRoCS: Leveraging Stigmergy on a Multi-robot Construction Platform for Unknown Environments [chapter]

Michael Allwright, Navneet Bhalla, Haitham El-faham, Anthony Antoun, Carlo Pinciroli, Marco Dorigo
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In nature, social insects coordinate the construction of their nests using stigmergy, a mechanism of indirect coordination that is robust and adaptive.  ...  Current implementations of decentralized multi-robot construction systems are limited to construction of rudimentary structures such as walls and clusters, or rely on the use of blueprints for regulation  ...  For this reason, a system that is robust and capable of performing construction in a variety of environments without specific programming is desirable.  ...

Combining stigmergic and flocking behaviors to coordinate swarms of drones performing target search

Mario G. C. A. Cimino, Alessandro Lazzeri, Gigliola Vaglini
2015 2015 6th International Conference on Information, Intelligence, Systems and Applications (IISA)  
For this purpose, it is challenging to investigate the use of biologically-inspired mechanisms.  ...  In this paper, we present a novel and fully decentralized model for target search, and experiment it empirically using a multi-agent simulation platform.  ...  A fundamental swarm coordination mechanism is markerbased stigmergy [4] .  ...
