Center for Collective Intelligence

The MIT Center for Collective Intelligence (CCI) brings together faculty from across MIT to conduct research on how new information technologies—especially the internet and AI—now allow huge numbers of people all over the world to work together in new ways. The center's basic research question is: How can people and computers be connected so that—collectively—they act more intelligently than any individuals, groups, or computers have ever done before?

This first-of-its-kind research effort draws on the strengths of many diverse organizations across MIT, including the MIT Media Lab, the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, and the MIT Sloan School of Management.

CCI frequently employs graduate students and undergraduates to assist with its research projects.

CCI is directed by Professor Thomas W. Malone. For further information about the center or about student employment opportunities, contact Kathleen Kennedy.
