Ants: New evidence for interaction networks

Ants.  Ants are social insects of the family Formicidae  (pronounced /f?r’m?s??di?/) ( Wikipedia ). I have more esteem and admiration about these small insects for their life style, team work and the way they keep them busy. Amazing. At most moments  these colonies, keep running for something and never stop their march. Never. They could be just walking around all the places randomly and bumping into each other. I doubt, does it sleeps at night or in daytime? Not sure! With its tiny brain and skeptical system, where this tremendous energy pumps out and keep them one of the greatest toiling insect in the world?!.

During my school age, I always wonder and envisage like, if any ants meet together it truly communicates each other and talks about the trail clearance they crossed or about the way they travel, and  forage for food availability or even any mission critical issue on the root. Funny though…and I believed it.

Today, when reading an article from university of Arizona which was quite interesting. Per current research science conveys that, singled out by unique color codes, ants provide evidence through their interactions that challenges previous assumptions about how social networks function. University researchers chose to use ant colonies as models for self-directed networks because they are comprised of many individual components.

Basically the ants with no apparent central organization /or institute and yet are able to function as a colony. Just have a look around of below image to get an idea how it may interact. Per research and study “We could imagine that if the yellow ant passed food on to the red ant, which could later give it to the blue ant. However, the blue ant has no option of giving anything to the yellow ant because that would require moving backward in time.”

The kind of study which leads, understanding how interaction networks function could help to build applications by self-directed networks in future.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
