How the Internet's Collective Human Intelligence Could Outsmart AI

How the Internet's Collective Human Intelligence Could Outsmart AI | Futurism, Ideas, Leadership in Business | Scoop.it
Okay, collective intelligence is deeply engrained in animals; the collective intelligence of bees and ants is well-known. You also have collective intelligence in social mammals. They signal each other about danger and where food is. But in the case of humans, our collective intelligence is much more powerful because we have language, we use technology, and we have complex social institutions. It’s a higher level of collective intelligence, and it’s fundamentally based on symbolic manipulation.

In human history, there is an increase in collective intelligence based on media that increase our ability to manipulate symbols. Currently, we are at the state of algorithmic symbol manipulation, but it’s just the beginning of this new era. My work is devoted to the improvement of collective intelligence by exploiting this new medium.

There are a lot of misunderstandings about collective intelligence. The first is that we have to create it; we don’t have to, it already exists. The second idea that should be avoided is that collective intelligence is group think. It’s just the opposite of group think. It is the integration of variety and singularities in the philosophical sense, not the Kurzweilian. It’s not uniform, it’s thinking together.

Flipped Classroom is an inverted method of instruction where teaching and learning take place online outside of the class while homework is done in the classroom. Advocators of this approach believe that this is the ideal method of instruction in our digital age. They basically build their judgement on the following facts
