Honeybees inspire efficient servers

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a honeybee dance-inspired communications system, which they claim helps Internet servers work more efficiently. The new system reduces the possibility of a web site's becoming overwhelmed with requests and locking out potential users and customers. In tests based on real internet traffic, the honeybee method has been found to improve service by 4-25%. Craig Tovey, a professor in the H Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, said that he studied the efficiency of honeybees and discussed it with Sunil Nakrani, a computer science colleague visiting from the University of Oxford. The researchers' discussions led them to conclude that bees and internet servers had strikingly similar barriers to efficiency.
