Misunderstanding about swarm intellingence


Lately I have seen some erroneous explanations about swarm intelligence as for example here. The fact that people connect more on the internet and find easily all sorts of information, and hence become more “intelligent” (do they ?) is NO Swarm intelligence !

As I told in my previous post you can speak of swarm intelligence when a large number of relatively dumb items together form another type of composed item, the swarm, that is orders of magnitude more intelligent then the constituent parts. This is not the case in human beings connected through the internet !
