Human Swarm Problem Solving [chapter]

2021 Cultural-Historical Perspectives on Collective Intelligence  
Usually, the notion of a swarm describes the collective behavior of a decentralized, self-organized system like fish schooling, bird flocking, ant colonies, animal herding and honeybee swarming.  ...  Although biologists sometimes use CI as a term, the more biologically orientated term "swarm intelligence" is more common.  ...  Human online swarming can be regarded as a new wisdom of crowd approach. However, the collective performance of such systems is still uncertain.  ...
