Autonomous systems are "objects" with a certain capacity for making decisions in response to changes in their environment, without outside intervention. These could be, for example, robots or drones. In addition, it often makes sense to combine a large number of such systems to perform complex tasks. We then speak of swarms of autonomous systems: swarms of robots, drones or in the living world, colonies of ants, swarms of bees, physarum polycephalum (known as a blob), etc. These systems, by interacting and collaborating, have the capacity to build a coherent behavior with very partial and potentially false information (because very quickly obsolete). We can thus speak of a form of intelligence at the level of the swarm considered as a whole. The objective of this presentation is to present the mechanisms that govern their operation.
