MIT’s Collective Intelligence Design Lab (CIDL) helps groups design innovative new kinds of collectively intelligent systems (superminds) to solve important problems.


Our world is filled with complex systems of people and machines that we humans have designed: from companies and governments to economies and societies. And as technologies and human desires change, the configurations of these systems often need to change, too. Supermind Design is an approach that emphasizes generating innovative new possibilities for how to configure these systems.
