Wiser World Web: Collaborative Inquiry on Collective Intelligence

Home


Are you interested in serious inquiry about how to foster a wiser, more collectively intelligent world?  You can use this website to:

~~~~~~

Most of the world’s complex problems will be solved better if we improve our understanding of collective intelligence.  So, collaborate with others to create a wiser world by creating a better understanding of collective intelligence (CI).

Mobile Strategy

Tell us what strategies will advance collective intelligence as a field of inquiry. Go to:

  1. Surveys – questions about those strategies
  2. Interviews – schedule appointment with Jock McClellan to discuss the issue
  3. Group forum on the CI field  – post your thoughts about how to nurture  CI as a field of study.

Brainstorm
