Ant-based modeling (agent-based city simulation with ants)

Significant portion of our works in the last decade are based on the Kirman model, which itself is inspired by the behavior of social insects. Experiments which inspired Kirman to formulate his agent-based model actually used ant colonies as their observation object (recall our first post on the Kirman model). Now it appears that scientists at MIT are doing the opposite - using ants as a living agent-based model.
