Woolley and colleagues (2010) demonstrated that a group’s ability to work together across a range of tasks could be characterized by a general collective intelligence factor. Since the time of the initial publication of our findings, we have been accumulating data from over 1,300 teams including over 5,000 individuals working on a battery of tasks on our online platform to better quantify the processes that drive collective intelligence. In a related line of research, we have experimented with deploying some low-level bots or “nudges” to help shape team process in the direction of higher collective intelligence. The theoretical implications of the findings of both of these lines of research will be discussed along with what they suggest for how to develop technologies to enhance collective intelligence.
