Intelligence is not just something that happens inside individual minds. It also arises within groups of individuals and this phenomenon can be quite powerful. [...] The widely accepted definition states that collective intelligence is the ability of a group of people to be collectively smarter than the smartest individuals in the group if they acted alone. This has been happening for a very long time in the natural world. The advent of the Internet however, has allowed for collective intelligence to be much more easily implemented, and is allowing people from many different regions and backgrounds to connect. This has led the MIT centre for collective intelligence to pose the question: how can people and computers be connected so that – collectively – they act more intelligently than any person, group or computer has ever done before?
