How do we intelligize?

I wonder how we do it. How we intelligize together. What happens when a group of people tries to solve a problem, together? Why are some groups more innovative than others? How can groups be more intelligent? and how can technology help?



Yiftach Nagar explores collective forms of intelligence in sociotechnical settings from small face-to-face groups, to collectives of humans and computer-agents working together. He is a Doctoral Fellow at the MIT Sloan School of Management, and a member of the research team at the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence.




Im a doctoral researcher at the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence (CCI) and a PhD candidate at the MIT Sloan School of Management. Im advised by Prof. Tom Malone.

My research on collective-intelligence, collaboration and social computing is at the intersection of information technology research, small-groups research, and organizational studies. It draws on ideas from several fields including psychology (mainly social and cognitive), organization studies, computer-supported-cooperative work (CSCW) and human-computer interaction (HCI), and it falls into these categories as well.

I also did some things before I came to MIT.
