The Swarm Intelligence focus area is currently the most active in the group, with the largest number of members. The focus area's main interest is particle swarm optimization (PSO), with the development of new and improved PSO algorithms. Theoretical analyses of PSO are also being done, with convergence proofs being studied. Techniques are developed for constrained optimization, niching (locating multiple solutions), multi-objective optimization, dynamic optimization problems, and to cope with discrete search spaces.

Applications of PSO techniques that are under investigation include the coevolutionary training of neural networks for game playing and financial traders, scheduling, image analysis, and data clustering. The research focus area is also investigating the application of ant colony optimization techniques to exploratory data analysis, workload distribution in computer grids, energy efficient routing in mobile ad hoc networks, and network topology design.
