Artificial ants: simple rules and complex behaviours

And now that I am on the youtube raid... one more interesting video I've found:

The neat part is that each ant has very simple set of rules, yet the system as a whole gives the impression of "purposeful" behaviour. Strangely enough, with humans the tendency seems to be the opposite.

Yes, but ants are searching for food, recruiting and carry it back to the base. Ants are simple beings (or so it seems) with structured society and defined social roles. Humans are not. Nor their avatars, for that matter.
