How can you increase the collective intelligence of companies, or countries, or the whole world? A lofty goal, but this study attempts to evaluate collective intelligence of a group and concluded that (1) it is not correlated with the intelligence of its individuals and (2) a moderate amount of diversity (as in including women) works best.
Thanks to Jeffrey J Davis for giving me permission to post my third feminist blog of the day (he assured me that I had not yet crossed the one-track-mind threshold)! Disclaimer, I’ve not read the original research article (which I generally like to do), so I can’t critically evaluate. Food for thought, anyhow.
