Over the summer Nesta will be setting up a new Centre for Collective Intelligence Design. Through the centre we will explore how human and machine intelligence can be combined to make the most of our collective knowledge and develop innovative and effective solutions to social challenges.

The centre, which we will launch this summer, will grow expertise in both the understanding and practice of collective intelligence, mobilising human intelligence at scale and combining it with data, AI and other resources.

At the heart of the centre will be a focus on applications with public benefit in fields like health and education, and we expect to work with researchers in universities, start-ups and large firms, and government policymakers and service leaders.
