From Social Insects to Radcliffe Fellows: Exploring a Collective Intelligence || Radcliffe Institute

What do a computer scientist, a playwright, and a biologist have in common? Collective intelligence, as Radhika Nagpal RI '13 discovered during her fellowship at the Radcliffe Institute. She worked with experimental biologists to develop a better understanding of collective intelligence in social insects through the application of computer science. The professor of computer science at Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and a faculty member of the Harvard Wyss Institute of Biologically Inspired Engineering also found a surprising commonality with a playwright and other Radcliffe fellows.

Two Europes exist and it is necessary to position oneself in one or the other | P2P Foundation

Two Europes exist and it is necessary to position oneself in one or the other | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Left-Europe-democratic radicality: this dispositive is becoming increasingly important for defining the defense of working-class interests and for emancipation of the population from poverty. There is a long and dirty tradition of left-sovereigntists that must be ended, just as we must defeat the populist experiences that use national sentiments and transform them into fascist (nationalist, identitarian, isolationist) impulses. Only a europeanist left, deeply transformed by the democratic radicality of the emergent movements against austerity, can construct a democratic Europe.

Traditional state-owned model of public services is coming to an end | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The traditional state-owned model of public services is coming to an end. The search for a new model benefits from reflection on the historical background, and an understanding of the broader context of concepts of public service. Modern mutuals seek both to provide a new basis for public ownership and an organisational model which underpins a redesigned service delivery model aimed at securing today’s desired outcomes.
