Abstract. Modeling societies of individuals is a challenging task increasingly attracting the interest of the machine learning community. Here we present an application of graphical model methods in order to model the behavior of an ant colony. Ants are tagged with RFID so that their paths through the environment can be constantly recorded. A Structured Hdden Markov Model has been used to build up the model of individual activities. Then, the global proﬁle of the colony has been traced during the migration from one nest to another. The method provided signiﬁcant information concerning the social dynamics of ant colonies.
