Webinar: Predicting the Future with Collective Intelligence
Any society, organisation, or business is like a great collective mind. Co-workers and employees have a unique perspective on their tasks, challenges, and the future of the organisation. But like people, most organisations only utilise a small part of that collective brain in its operations. What if you could tap into this vast pool of employee experience and know-how and optimise your workflow, spark innovation, and predict the future success of current strategies?
Crowdsourcing knowledge is as old as civilisation itself, but the technological revolution has enabled crowd-based information aggregation at an unprecedented scale. “Most larger organisations are sitting on an incredibly valuable employee resource – a collective intelligence – but very few take advantage of it,” says Founder and Research Coordinator of the Collective Intelligence Group at ITU and leading expert on the field of collective intelligence, Carina Antonia Hallin.
In this 45-minute introduction to collective intelligence, Carina Antonia Hallin shares insight on how decision makers can use collective intelligence to advance creativity, innovation, workflows, and predictions of uncertainties. The webinar is based on the ITU Professional course Collective Intelligence for Predictions, Innovation, Work, and Competitiveness which will take place in November 2021.
Learn the basics of crowdsourcing tactics, get an overview of the current platforms available for information aggregation, and see what other organisations have gained by using collective intelligence as a technology and a way of thinking.
The webinar is open to anyone interested, but will be of particular interest to professionals with strategy-level responsibilities and leaders for tech adoption, such as Executives, Team Leaders, CIO's, IT Managers, Innovation Managers etc.
