Abstract The emergence of organization is at the core of many complex systems, from neural cell assemblies to living insect societies. Since information processing by a Spiking Neuron Network (SNN) is based on temporal dynamics, SNNs appear to be powerful neural information processing systems for modelling the emergence of collective phenomena in complex systems.
A spatio-temporal model, called SpikeAnts, is proposed for reproducing the emergence of synchronized activities in social insect colonies: each ant agent is modelled by only two spiking neurons and the ant colony is a sparsely connected SNN.
Individual decision making results from the competition of an active and a passive neurons which process information received from neighbouring agents.
The spatio-temporal coupling of the ant agents results in three types of temporal patterns at the population scale: asynchronous, synchronous aperiodic, and synchronous periodic, similar to real-world behaviour observed in ant societies.
A phase diagram of the emergent synchronization patterns with respect to two order parameters, respectively modelling the ant sociability and receptivity, is presented and discussed.
