The Role of Learning in the Honey Bee Waggle Dance
Learning is largely a programmed behavior, governed by a type of algorithm, particularly for animals with limited cognitive ability.
Intelligent Design in Animal Self-Location and Navigation
A question is whether such mechanisms exist in more ancient brain regions of other animals. A new study has identified a self-location mechanism in zebrafish.
Animal Algorithms: Ant Foraging Is a “Rational” Behavior
Of course, ants and other animals do not make decisions in a “conscious” manner as humans would. Instead they rely on algorithms.
To Regulate Foraging, Harvester Ants Use a (Designed) Feedback Control Algorithm
These elements of harvester ant behavior present a severe challenge for the evolutionary paradigm.
Complex Programmed Behaviors — Intelligently Designed
Some discriminators don’t get us very far in deciding which is the better explanation between blind evolution and intelligent design.
