This event is organized by the I2 Social Intelligence Working Group
One of the most fundamental manifestations of human intelligence is the ability to engage in social interactions - communication, coordination, and collaboration - so as to overcome challenges and attain goals that would be impossible for any single individual. While social intelligence is found among many species, human social intelligence is unique in its scale and complexity. The Social Intelligence Working Group focuses on how this social intelligence is achieved, both at the level of individuals interacting with each other and at the level of groups facing common challenges.
The goals of the Working Group are to develop the theoretical underpinnings, document the empirical properties, and derive the practical implications of social intelligence using tools and techniques from a variety of disciplines include computer science, economics, evolutionary biology, management, and mathematics. To do this, the Working Group will draw on resources from across MIT, including the Human Dynamics Lab, the Center for Collective Intelligence, and the Laboratory for Financial Engineering.
