MIT Center for Collective Intelligence and Climate CoLab are excited to announce the coming release of Superminds: The Surprising Power of People and Computers Thinking Together, the latest book by Prof. Thomas W. Malone, director of the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence and founder of Climate CoLab.

About the Book

If you’re like most people, you probably believe that humans are the most intelligent animals on our planet. But there’s another kind of entity that can be far smarter: groups of people. This groundbreaking book shows how groups of people working together in superminds — like hierarchies, markets, democracies, and communities — have been responsible for almost all human achievements in business, government, science, and beyond. And these collectively intelligent human groups are about to get much smarter.  

Order your copy today!  (See booksellers above.)  Superminds will be released on Tuesday, May 15, 2018.
