Tues, Sept 24th | 9:00am-6:00pm | Singleton Auditorium, Building 46
// Quest Workshop on Collective Intelligence
Almost everything we humans have ever achieved has not been done by individuals acting alone, but by groups of people working together in ways that seem intelligent. Financial markets operate on this principle of collective intelligence to set prices for stocks, as do Internet searches that deliver answers to questions thousands have asked before. Computers can make groups even smarter, but how should humans and machines interact?
This workshop will explore the ways that people and machines, working separately or together, can leverage their relative strengths, resolve conflicts, and create value for society. The workshop will feature people from across MIT who are exploring aspects of collective intelligence from many different disciplinary perspectives.
