Swarm intelligence, a branch of artificial intelligence is a part which discusses the collective behavior of social animals such as ants, fishes, termites, birds and bacteria. The collective behavior of animals to achieve target can be used in practical applications. One of the applications is ant colony optimization. Ongoing research of ACO, there are diverse applications namely data mining, image processing, power electronic circuit design etc. One of that is network routing. By using ACO, the authors can find the shortest path in network routing.
