Nature provides splendid examples of real-time learning and adaptation behavior that emerges from highly localized interactions among agents of limited capabilities. For example, schools of fish are remarkably apt at configuring their topologies almost instantly in the face of danger [1]: when a predator arrives, the entire school opens up to let the predator through and then coalesces again into a moving body to continue its schooling behavior. Likewise, in bee swarms, only a small fraction of the agents (about 5%) are informed, and these informed agents are able to guide the entire swarm of bees to their new hive [2]. It is an extraordinary property of biological networks that sophisticated behavior is able to emerge from simple interactions among lower-level agents [3].
