Noise enhances information transfer

"A naive understanding of the effect of noise on information transmission is that stochastic components decrease the quality of information processing in the system. On the contrary this study demonstrates that generic packet-delivery undertaken by a local navigation rule in a complex network can benefit from the presence of a topological noise (random rewiring of links) and/or a dynamic noise component" - an interesting article from Nature
