In the world of robotics, the term "swarm" describes the way a group of robots can solve a problem together. By using humans in a game of Sudoku, scientists at John Carroll University outside of Cleveland, Ohio are trying to understand more about how groups can solve problems. WCPN's Mhari Saito signed herself up for the experiment and shares the experience with Weekend America.

    Please tell me how to submit my answer to Will shortz' weekend uzzle for February 1, 2009? When they said how to submit they went oo fast for me.
    My answer is Michelle Obama. the accented second syllable of each name can be turned around to mean 'an attractive woman', or bomb shell.
    Thank you
