Abstract

Modeling biological and natural systems in order to solve complex problems have become popular. Traditional techniques fail at solving some types of problems. On the other hand, it is seen that these kind of problems are solved in nature without help of human. Swarm intelligence(SI) as a research field, proposes such solutions. SI models the collective behavior of the social insects like ants, bees or termites and their coordination without communication. The emerged intelligence has some special characteristics and it can be applied to some areas. Some of the application fields are robotics, networking, finance and entertainment. In this paper, principles of SI systems, original simulations of some SI techniques, and new approaches are presented.
