Crew Intelligence Systems is a family of very simple algorithms for different classes of complex optimization problems in static and dynamic environments by means of reactive multiagent systems. Crew Intelligence systems are loosely inspired from the behavior shown by a staff of bartenders when serving drinks to customers in a bar or pub. In this paper we improve them by letting the bartenders also call (shout) for help, and we adapt them to Digital Objects Preservation, where agents explore file systems looking for victims, digitals objects that need change of format, or any other transformation to be preserved. When they find someone they “shout” so that agent mates can hear it. The louder the shout, the most important or urgent the finding. Louder shouts can also refer to closeness. We perform several experiments to show that this system works very scalably, showing that heterogeneous teams of agents outperform homogeneous ones over a wide range of task complexity. Finally, a properly designed combination of heterogeneous agents is more scalable when confronted with uncertain maps of digital objects to be preserved.
