There are new kinds of intelligence forming. Computers are beginning to teach themselves with spectacular results. But in our excitement over the promise of neural networks and deep learning, we have neglected the most important development of all.

Superminds - groups of people and computers working together - can act more intelligently than any person, group, or computer has ever done before. They already make many of our most important decisions, whether through the hierarchy of a multinational company or the democracy of a nation state. And they will do a lot more.

Groundbreaking and utterly fascinating, Superminds shows that instead of fearing the rise of artificial intelligence we should be focusing on what we can achieve by working with computers - because together we will change the world.
