Nesta to set up new Centre for Collective Intelligence Design

We see great potential in AI, if handled well. But we also believe that many of the biggest gains will come from better approaches to combining human and machine intelligence, and in particular harnessing the intelligence of groups.

Earlier this week, Nesta confirmed they are to launch a new Centre for Collective Intelligence Design this summer. The centre will seek to harness the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) with a particular focus on the combination of human and machine intelligence. An important aspect will also be the focus on the sharing of collective intelligence and how this can benefit public fields such as health and education. 

Nesta will also be partnering with SAGE Publishing to organize a one day event that will explore opportunities in collective intelligence and how we can make the most of them. Keep an eye out for more news on this event soon.
