I am a Research Scientist and Principal Investigator of the Hybrid Collective Intelligence team @ the Max Planck Center for Humans and Machines, in Berlin.


Below is a short description of my research interests, following a loose chronological order. My pre-doc years can be summarized as:

 

(1) Neuron*Neuron = Biological Intelligence

 

You can read more about it here. I did a D.Phil. in one tiny aspect of intelligence, called "metacognition", the ability to evaluate one's own cognitive processes. I focused on a tiny aspect of metacognition, namely "confidence" in decision-making. And on a tiny part of decisions, namely decisions in social scenarios. I tend to summarize these years as:

 

(2) Human*Human = Collective Intelligence

 

Now, moving to the Media Lab, I found that collective decisions were not interesting enough, so I decided to add machines to the mix, a decision summarized by:

 

(3) Human*Machine = Hybrid Intelligence

 

Currently, I am looking forward to get into less boring stuff, as you can clearly see below:

 

(4) Human2Machine2 = ?
