Former senior Downing Street adviser to Tony Blair Geoff Mulgan explains how the ‘bigger mind’ of machines and humans working together has the potential to solve the great challenges of our time and help us to survive and thrive.

Mulgan says a new field of collective intelligence has emerged in the last few years, prompted by a wave of digital technologies that make it possible for organisations and societies to think at large scale. He looks at different fields, including philosophy, computer science, and biology, to show how collective intelligence can guide corporations, governments, universities, and societies to make the most of human brains and digital technologies. 

Mulgan is chief executive of Nesta, the UK’s National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts, and a senior visiting scholar at Harvard University’s Ash Center. He was the founder of the think tank Demos and director of the Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit and head of policy under Tony Blair. His books include The Locust and the Bee and Good and Bad Power.
Tea and cakes will be served at the event.

In association with Saїd Business School, University of Oxford.
