C.2 Hybrid intelligence to exceed the limits

Hybrid intelligence is the articulation of individual, collective and artificial intelligence to exceed together the limits of each of them.
What is collective intelligence? How can it be activated? What can we learn from societies where collaboration has been the basis of functioning? Where biology gives us a new look at living beings that survive much better if they weave cooperative and mutual relationships, we are beginning to rethink the dogmas of the “law of the jungle” so prevalent in our society.
