Nature is a great source of inspiration for us. Swarms of bees have been shown to make decisions by working together unanimously and leveraging their combined intelligence. This is true of birds, ants, and fish. Researchers have borrowed from this pattern of behavior to build artificial systems that can mimic the intelligence of swarms.
While AI focuses on creating intelligent machines that can automate human tasks, genetic algorithm harnesses the power of the swarm to make predictions which are remarkably accurate.
