Join Collective Intelligence leaders across disciplines to explore how powerful technology can be leveraged to tackle big problems. The three-day conference features excellent speakers from both corporate and academia and will explore topics that focus on how people and computers can be connected so that, collectively, they act more intelligently than any person or group has before. It will also expose businesses and leaders to ways to make more technologically enabled decisions—how to work smarter, not harder – such as how AI can help groups be more collectively intelligent and when and how individuals and groups should use AI.

Humanics is one of the leading themes at D'Amore-McKim, both in terms of our research, but also of our teaching. This conference, which is focused on human-AI interaction, is at the core of that strategic initiative. With many intellectual leaders, including Dean David De Cremer, it's a great opportunity to welcome the collective intelligence community to our school.
