Michael Hogan (@michaelhogannui) is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the National University of Ireland, Galway. Over the past few years, Michael has worked to extend the pragmatic systems science and collective intelligence methods developed by John Warfield. This work includes basic and applied collective intelligence research and the creation of a new approach to systems science education. Michael currently works on a variety of EU projects that use collective intelligence, including projects focused on marine ecosystem sustainability, open data transparency, and e-book design for children. In his talk, Michael will describe Warfield’s method, outline a variety of recent basic and applied social science applications, and discuss how collective intelligence can be used in a classroom setting.
