Superminds and computers: the future of evolution
Superminds provides a detailed analysis of organized groups of humans known as ‘’superminds’’, together with the rules that govern them. We will find out how computers and robots will increasingly become part of our everyday life, and how this will change both our habits and our work. Technology is generating incredible opportunities and it is essential that we understand how to make the most of them. It’s time to move past the belief that robots are stealing our jobs and that they will take over the world.
Now is the time to embrace the concept of superminds, according to which people and machines act together for everyone's sake.
Many useful tips to:
- Anyone who is fascinated by artificial intelligence and wants a better understanding of how it will become part of our everyday life.
- Anyone who wants to learn more about humanity’s tendency to form groups, about the rules that govern these groups and the most suitable structures for different kinds of projects.
- Anyone who wishes to overcome the fear that ‘’robots will steal our jobs’’, and would like to understand how the labour market will change, get insight on future market equilibriums and understand our role in all of the above.
Mankind and groups of men: how can the latter be classified and who makes decisions?
Throughout history, mankind’s evolution has always been defined by collectiveness. We have overcome some of our biggest challenges thanks to individuals coming together and joining forces for a common goal. Groups, like individuals, demonstrate intelligence. We can classify groups based on how decisions are made within them:
- hierarchies – few individuals are in power and make decisions that other members must abide by;
- democracies – decisions are voted on by members;
- markets- decisions are made by mutual agreement;
- communities – decisions are made by informal consensus;
- ecosystems – decisions are made by stronger members, who can therefore survive and reproduce.
All other kinds of superminds interact within ecosystems.
