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 a leading theme at Northeastern University, and this conference, focused on human-AI interaction, is at the core of that strategic initiative.

ACM Collective Intelligence 2024 Opens in Modal

I think the collective intelligence conference is really unique among academic conferences for how broad and diverse it is. It brings together people from biology, philosophy, social science, and computer science. I really love that about the community and this conference, in particular, (because it brings) so many different fields together.
