Biomimicry – Inspired by Nature – episode 3

„We have so much information. We are washed in information. We have so many signals coming in to us all the time and the importance is to figure out, what the most important signal to pay attention to is. It’s called signal-to-noise-ratio.“ (Janine Benyus)

Our human ‘habitat’ has radically changed through communication technology and media. Economic processes require decisions by the minute. In our cities traffic control is becoming increasingly complex. Globally we take more and more environmental risks. Our receptiveness is reaching its limit. Can a close look at nature help solve these challenges?

In the third episode we learn how to decode the communication of dolphins, how the collective intelligence of ants work or how a slime mold helps us improve traffic routes.
