Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Because of rapid growth in the scale and complexity of information networks, self-organizing systems are increasingly used to realize novel network control systems that are highly scalable, adaptable, and robust. However, the uncertainty (incompleteness, vagueness, and dynamicity) of information in self-organizing systems makes it difficult for them to work appropriately in accordance with the network state. In this study, we apply the collective decision-making of animal groups to self-organizing control mechanisms to allow them to adapt to information uncertainty. Specifically, by introducing the concept of flexible leader, agents change their role (leader or follower) according to the confidence of their own information, which increases decision accuracy. We propose a channel-selection mechanism based on collective decision-making in accordance with information confidence. Through simulation
experiments, we show the advantages and properties of our proposal.
