    • Developing pervasive multiagent systems with nature-inspired co-ordination 

      Zambonelli, Franco; Omicini, Andrea; Anzengruber, Bernhard; Castelli, Gabriella; DeAngelis, Francesco; di Marzo Serugendo, Giovanan; Dobson, Simon Andrew; Fernandez Marquez, Jose-Luis; Ferscha, Alois; Mamei, Marco; Mariani, Stefano; Molesini, Ambra; Montagna, Sara; Nieminen, Jussi; Pianini, Danilo; Rosi, Alberto; Stevenson, Graeme Turnbull; Viroli, Mirko; Ye, Juan (2015-02) - Journal article
      Pervasive computing systems can be modelled effectively as populations of interacting autonomous components. The key challenge to realizing such models is in getting separately-specified and -developed sub-systems to ...
    • The evolution of social learning mechanisms and cultural phenomena in group foragers 

      van der Post, Daniel J.; Franz, Mathias; Laland, Kevin N. (2017-02-10) - Journal article
      Background:  Advanced cognitive abilities are widely thought to underpin cultural traditions and cumulative cultural change. In contrast, recent simulation models have found that basic social influences on learning suffice ...
    • Experience and motivation shape leader-follower interactions in fish shoals 

      Webster, Michael Munro (2017) - Journal article
      Leadership is an important process shaping collective movement in some species. Recent work has demonstrated that experienced or motivated individuals can emerge as leaders, and provides insight into the mechanisms by which ...
    • Mixed-species aggregations in arthropods 

      Boulay, Julien; Aubernon, Cindy; Ruxton, Graeme D.; Hédouin, Valéry; Deneubourg, Jean-Louis; Charabidzé, Damien (2019-01-02) - Journal item
      This review offers the first synthesis of the research on mixed-species groupings of arthropods and highlights the behavioural and evolutionary questions raised by such behaviour. Mixed-species groups are commonly found ...
    • Skill learning and the evolution of social learning mechanisms 

      van der Post, Daniel J.; Franz, Mathias; Laland, Kevin Neville (2016-08-24) - Journal article
      Background. Social learning is potentially advantageous, but evolutionary theory predicts that (i) its benefits may be self-limiting because social learning can lead to information parasitism, and (ii) these limitations ...
    • Using social media and mobile technologies to foster engagement and self-organization in participatory urban planning and neighbourhood governance 

      Kleinhans, Reinout; Van Ham, Maarten; Evans-Cowley, Jennifer (2015) - Journal item
      This editorial explores the potential of social media and mobile technologies to foster citizen engagement and participation in urban planning. We argue that there is a lot of wishful thinking, but little empirically ...
