Matthew, it was fun to meet you in person. Looking forward to your posts about the camp.

"...single ant...couldn't devise an algorithm for the efficient gathering of food, but the colony can."

The colony does not devise anything. The efficient gathering of food is the result of evolution working on ant genes that create behaviors, that in the colony aggregate, result in a competitive search algorithm. Thus all the behaviors are in the ant and the algorithm is nothing more than the emergent behavior of the rules acting in parallel.

Alex - um, yes - I think that is what I was saying.
