Collective Intelligence --- This course focuses on learning to build organizations and teams that produce collective intelligence. We learn what collective intelligence is, how to measure it, and how to comprise teams, design institutions, and grow organizational cultures that achieve it. Collective intelligence can be superadditive: the group outperforms any member, or emergent: the group develops entirely different functionalities. We will learn how organizational structures and culture facilitate both types of collective intelligence as well as the necessity of diversity, interdependence, and connectedness in achieving collective intelligence. The course covers a range of topics from ensemble methods, forecasting, Google's PageRank algorithm, optimal team competition, and the synergies between human and artificial intelligence.
