Cognition and intelligence

The two research programs on entanglement and evolution of complexity come together in our research on intelligence: what does it mean to be an intelligent system? How can we become more intelligent? We investigate intelligence in all its forms and facets: individual, collective, artificial, and distributed intelligence (the combination of all the former). For example, we have done research on giftedness, the (anti) Flynn effect (secular increase in IQ), the possibilities and limitations of artificial general intelligence, and the processes of thinking. Recent recognition of this research was the Kurzweil Prize for Best AGI Idea that CLEA researchers Weinbaum and Veitas received for their concept of Open-Ended Intelligence.
