Examples include:

Multi-agent systems (MAS), Agent-based modeling (ABM), and Swarm Intelligence are three useful specifications of this subset, where collective behaviors emerge from the interaction of decentralized self-organized agents.

This standard is just the beginning of several other projects that the CTA's is leading to improve application adoption of this exciting technology in healthcare. So more to come ...
