The MIT Center for Collective Intelligence brings together faculty from across MIT to conduct research on how new communications technologies, especially the internet, now allow huge numbers of people all over the planet to work together in new ways. The center's basic research question is: How can people and computers be connected so that—collectively—they act more intelligently than any individuals, groups, or computers have ever done before?
This first-of-its-kind research effort draws on the strengths of many diverse organizations across MIT including the MIT Media Lab, the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, and the MIT Sloan School of Management.
The Center for Collective Intelligence is directed by Professor Thomas W. Malone. For further information, contact Robert Halperin, 617-253-4413, firstname.lastname@example.org.
