Creative Intelligence

Creative Intelligence | Creativity and learning |
What makes us creative? Our ability to form our own intent. It is only through creating a purpose that is uniquely our own that we can fully embody the human spirit.
Clive Hilton's insight:

Can machines/computers ever be truly creative. (Clearly, yes). Worth looking at if only for the Feynman interview.

Collective Intelligence | Conversation | Edge | Creativity and learning |

As all the people and computers on our planet get more and more closely connected, it's becoming increasingly useful to think of all the people and computers on the planet as a kind of global brain.


THOMAS W. MALONE is the Patrick J. McGovern Professor of Management at the MIT Sloan School of Management and the founding director of the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence.


He was also the founding director of the MIT Center for Coordination Science and one of the two founding co-directors of the MIT Initiative on "Inventing the Organizations of the 21st Century".


It's important to realize that intelligence is not just something that happens inside individual brains. It also arises with groups of individuals. In fact, I'd define collective intelligence as groups of individuals acting collectively in ways that seem intelligent. By that definition, of course, collective intelligence has been around for a very long time. Families, companies, countries, and armies: those are all examples of groups of people working together in ways that at least sometimes seem intelligent.

Research debunks the ‘IQ myth’ | KurzweilAI

Clive Hilton's insight:

As someone who's always been sceptical of the worth attached to traditional IQ tests, I find the results of this piece of research by  Canadian Western University particularly interesting. In short; there is no one single standardised test that is capable of reliably measuring IQ.


Further - perhaps contentiously - the report goes on to suggest that "regular brain training didn't help people's cognitive performance at all...".


And that ageing has a profound negative effect on both memory and reasoning abilities.


Oh well...


Lori Pirog's curator insight, January 3, 2013 7:41 AM

I've always believed intelligence was not being measured accurately. I would imagine creativity in all its different forms contributes to healthy brain aging and intelligence.

I think you are right, Lori, and I completely concur with your premise that creativity is symptomatic of a intelligence and high order cognitive processes.

Forecast 2020: Web 3.0+ and Collective Intelligence

Forecast 2020: Web 3.0+ and Collective Intelligence | Creativity and learning |

Brief but thought provoking article, including ideas about 'future universities'... "Let's focus on the resulting element - the "collective intelligence". Think about it as billions of human brains working using future super computers as a platform. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Srini Devadas described "collective intelligence" as consisting of two pillars: cloud computing and crowd computing. Cloud computing is using the Internet as a platform and making access to information available to everyone. Crowd computing, according to him, involves the analysis of information into "collective intelligence"; far beyond what we have today."
