I have run across several articles describing the process of “quorum sensing” (QS) and the demonstrable fact that even single celled bacteria use chemical quorum sensing which allows them to “communicate”.
In view that a bacteria is barely a living organism, one might say that bacteria employ a proto-linguistic (chemical words) method to perform coherent synchronized actions.
Being that bacteria are of such basic nature, but do employ chemicals and kinetic sensitivity to acquire a sense of their environment, it occurred to me that “quorum sensing” might well be a programmable langague for AI . i.e. quasy-intelligent autonomous organization.
In addition to its function in biological systems, quorum sensing has several useful applications for computing and robotics. In general, quorum sensing can function as a decision-making process in any decentralized system in which the components have: (a) a means of assessing the number of other components they interact with and (b) a standard response once a threshold number of components is detected.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quorum_sensing
