Event description

A new field of collective intelligence has emerged in the last few years, prompted by a wave of digital technologies that make it possible for organizations and societies to think at large scale. Gathering insights from diverse fields, including philosophy, computer science, and biology, Geoff Mulgan will reveal how collective intelligence can guide corporations, governments, universities, and societies to make the most of human brains and digital technologies.
