Keeping Humans in the Loop – Berkeley’s CA Management Review

Berkeley’s Haas School of Business Publishes in-depth Look at Artificial Swarm Intelligence

A new article published in California Management Review explores how Swarm AI technology from Unanimous enables business teams to amplify their collective intelligence over traditional methods. A publication of Cal Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, California Management Review is one the most influential academic journals in the world, alongside Harvard Business Review and MIT’s Sloan Management Review.
Jointly authored by Dr Lynn Metcalf and Dr David Askay of California Polytechnic State University and Dr. Louis Rosenberg of Unanimous AI, “Keeping Humans in the Loop: Pooling Knowledge through Artificial Swarm Intelligence to Improve Decision-Making” extends over twenty-six pages, and details a broad range of experiments that compare “human swarming” technologies to traditional polling and voting systems that enterprise teams currently use to capture the intelligence of their groups. From forecasting financial assets to predicting product sales, Swarm AI has been shown to be an efficient and effective method of optimizing group intelligence.  Swarm AI has even been shown to outperform Vegas betting markets across a wide range of sporting events.
The authors ultimately conclude that Artificial Swarm Intelligence (ASI) technology from Unanimous works to  “enhance human capabilities through AI, rather than replacing them. Moreover, the cases described illustrate how ASI, even in its nascent state, can outperform traditional methods of supporting group decisions, such as votes and polls; enable groups to reach decisions that individual participants are more satisfied with; amplify the intelligence of a group; and surpass the intelligence of machine learning AI.”
