Dr. Cruise is currently working on collective decision-making in multi-AI-agent systems. This is part of efforts furthering the cyber-physical command-guided swarm (CGS) concept. CGS is a multisensor, multiweapon, multiplatform, single-human-operator system-of-systems. The swarm intelligence emerges from the complex interactions within the CGS multiagent population. These interactions may be designed using game theory. Each AI agent executes a gaming strategy. About two dozen simultaneous games within the CGS population converge upon solution concepts, or equilibria (such as the famous Nash equilibrium), and these equilibria constitute the emergent swarm intelligence.
