Superminds: The Surprising Power of People and Computers Thinking Together
There are new kinds of intelligence forming in the twenty-first century. Computers are beginning to teach themselves with spectacular results. But in our excitement over the promise of neural networks and deep learning, we have neglected the most important development of all: collective intelligence.
Superminds – groups of people and computers together – can act more intelligently than any person, group, or computer has ever done before. They already make many of our most important decisions, whether through the hierarchy of a multinational company or the democracy of a nation state. And they will do a lot more. Groundbreaking and utterly fascinating, this book will change how you think, now and in the future.
