According to this article, bees can solve the traveling salesman problem. THAT’S RIGHT! NOW THE BEES ARE GOING TO RULE THE WORLD! HIDE YO KIDS, HIDE YO WIFE CAUSE THE BEES ARE COMING TO STING YOU!!!
On a more serious note: this is actually interesting. Studies show that the flight of a bee becomes more efficient over time, and that they are continually optimizing their routes over time, becoming better navigators with each flight, changing route sequences to improve speed, and becoming adapt to their favorite flights.
Think about how long it took for us to figure out how long it would take for the current fastest supercomputer to brute force-figure out the shortest possible route. Now that was for 100 different locations. Now think about how many flowers there are, and how often bees travel to them. No wonder researchers also say that in the future when your GPS tells you to go left, you may have a bee to thank for that information.
