New joint experiment by SCIoI and MPIB on swarm intelligence and decision-making at the Humboldt Labor

Great news from the Humboldt Labor!

In addition to the already existing exhibition Nach der Natur, which features SCIoI through videos and installations, the Humboldt Lab also just inaugurated the SCIoI-MPIB joint experiment on individual and collective decision-making processes by our member Ralf Kurvers, which playfully investigates how visitors make judgments and how they incorporate the judgments of others. In the experiment, visitors observe pictures of animal groups and provide a judgment of the number of animals in these groups. Then they observe the judgments of previous visitors and can make a second judgment. Is the judgement of others beneficial or detrimental. Find out by visiting the installation!
