Swarming Drones

Boeing demonstrates swarming drones.   Which reminds me of long ago projects that looked at how simple,uni-purpose, cheap and even disposable robotics could be used to perform relatively complex tasks by aggregating their efforts.  It also points to to the idea of agent based modeling, which we used for such corporate problems as trying to determine the predicted value of new initiatives.  And another designed to understand how complex supply-chains could be improved.  We never attempted to make the agents fly, though.
