Collaborative Intelligence

Collaborative Intelligence

Collaborative intelligence characterizes multi-agent, distributed systems where each agent, human or machine, is uniquely positioned, with autonomy to contribute to a problem-solving network. Collaborative autonomy of organisms in their ecosystems makes evolution possible.

Collaborative intelligence is the ability to produce synergy in one’s environment or in one’s relationship with that environment. Dialogue, for example, requires the exercise of collaborative intelligence by people working together towards greater shared understanding.
