The SFI short course aims to provide an intimate experience, enrollment is very limited and is first come first serve.

This accessible two-day executive education course provides an intensive introduction to information aggregation mechanisms in complex adaptive systems. The focus will be on crowdsourcing and the wisdom of crowds, collective intelligence, prediction markets, collective forecasting, the role of diversity, and measuring consensus. The concepts and tools we discuss will be useful for any system in which strategic decisions are made collectively by heterogeneous, error-prone agents extracting regularities from noisy data — whether neurons, monkeys, portfolio managers, election pundits, or sports analytics teams trying to determine how to make draft picks.
