Main Page - Handbook of Collective Intelligence

Main Page - Handbook of Collective Intelligence | Global Brain | Scoop.it

This Handbook provides a survey of the field of collective intelligence, summarizing what is known, providing references to sources for further information, and suggesting possibilities for future research.

The handbook is structured as a wiki, a collection of on-line pages, editable by their readers.

The handbook is hosted by the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence, but we hope that researchers and others from around the world will contribute to it. The process of creating this handbook could itself be an example of collective intelligence.
