Birds can teach the gliding drones of the future

Humans have always learned a lot from animals, and AI probably has a lot to learn from them too. For example, drones could save a lot of energy if they could harness the upward air currents that birds have in their “little fingers”. This is exactly what the MTA-ELTE Research Group on Airborne Group Behaviour is doing: using the latest technologies to study the mechanisms of collective behaviour in animals, and then trying to incorporate the knowledge gained into even more modern technologies.
