“Collective Intelligence: A Dispatch from The Nantucket Project” | Big Think

What is the purpose of 350 people gathering for a weekend-long conference on the island of Nantucket, Massachusetts? The most simple, and humble answer is to get this group of people to do something collectively that seems intelligent. That definition of collective intelligence comes from Tom Malone, director of the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence where he uses teams to tackle global problems like climate change.”

“Collective Intelligence was the theme of this year’s Nantucket Project, an event full of big ideas and bold-faced names that was held from October 5 to October 8th on Nantucket. In the coming weeks, Big Think will be releasing video highlights on this blog.”
