Researchers are asking if intelligence should be seen as a set of independent problem-solving modules, or as a single, generalized skill of innovation. Prof. Anna Dornhaus studies social insects like ants and bees to find the answer. Her findings could lead to better algorithms for computer networks and artificial intelligence technology. Prof. Dornhaus will present details of her research on Tuesday, February 26 as part of the College of Science Lecture Series.
Anna Dornhaus spoke with Leslie Tolbert, Regents Professor Emerita in Neuroscience at the University of Arizona.
