We foster a multidisciplinary, co-creative approach by combining a diversity of perspectives, organizational ecosystems and leading-edge expertise to discover game changers beyond horizon. Empowered by top-notch technology and the collective intelligence of a great number of forward thinkers, we are capable of anticipating critical upcoming trends, enabling citizens, politicians and businesses leaders to find efficient and sustainable solutions to their problems.
THE SWARM EXPERIENCE
In a dark conference room, a cheering crowd waves cards in the air. Each attendee has a card — red on one side, green on the other. In the massive auditorium, a surveillance system scans the enthusiastic group and processes the information it gathers. The system studies the ratio of red and green cards and uses the data to display the performance of the group, to the group. When a participant flips their card, the system identifies this change, 10 times per second.
This feedback actively stimulates all attendees. The entire group becomes engaged by the display of their performance in front of them. Supplemented by an uplifting and inspiring key note regarding the benefits of collective intelligence, the swarm experiment represents a fascinating empirical and cognitive learning experience that resonates profoundly with its participants. The spontaneous feeling of collective belonging and productivity exceeds all expectations.
