The success of humans is due to our outstanding ability to adapt to new environments. Individually, we quickly infer patterns from single or multiple observations. Collectively, we develop complex cultural artifacts (e.g., tools, institutions, norms, art, language or mental models of the world) that enable cooperation at scale. Algorithms will radically change the way humans collectively sense, learn and act in a rapidly changing environment. This theme investigates how such change might unfold.
