Collective Superintelligence Systems: Augmenting Human Intelligence and Moving Beyond Narrow Artificial Intelligence

A collective system has multiple parts that work together. A working collective system is greater than the sum of its parts. In a collective intelligence system, each part is also intelligent. A collective intelligence system, therefore, amplifies the intelligence of… Continue Reading →
