A group that makes better decisions than its individual members is considered to exhibit collective intelligence (CI. [] Key Result We also found that the system performed better when trading decisions were based on input from larger groups, suggesting that CI rather than individual intelligence was responsible for the system's overall good performance. Further testing is needed to see if these results will hold up over a longer period of time and with more participants.
